Little Marchants is situated inside Wheller Gardens community at Chermside and features several large and natural play spaces that includes a vegie patch, herb garden and our friendly chickens.
Our small size of just 30 children per day allows us to have genuine and meaningful interactions and relationships with all the children and families that attend. We pride ourselves on our welcoming environment where children can experience a sense of belonging and learn in a supportive and inclusive atmosphere. Little Marchants boasts a large outdoor natural environment allowing children to play and explore outside.
Located on the same campus as Wheller Gardens, you’ll find us amongst Wesley Mission Queensland corporate office, four aged care homes, one retirement living community and our wellbeing centre. Being part of such a diverse and unique community allows children to experience numerous spontaneous opportunities of discovery and learning.
Every day we provide an environment where children can learn while playing, exploring and investigating. Children reach their developmental milestones with the help of our team of Educators who support their learning.
Our Learning Program
We view children as competent and capable learners who can confidently take part and provide input in planning and implementing their own learning experiences. We use the Early Years Learning Framework and the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline to inform our practice. We actively invite and promote parent participation and involvement in our program through our learning application (Kindy Portal) and on-going face to face communication.
