That Little Kindy’s program is based on the National Quality Standards (NQS) and the National Framework: Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF). This program encourages input not only from Educators but children, family and the community as well.


Our philosophy is to provide experiences where the children can learn through play. Our programming and the EYLF allows for the children to explore, investigate, understand and enhance their knowledge based on their own interests, strengths and developmental needs.

Our program is a multicultural program. This helps the children enhance their awareness and acceptance of the world around them.

We believe that school readiness starts at a very young age and develops over time. School readiness activities are incorporated in daily activities, including writing, experimentation and investigations.

Communication with families
We have an open-door policy where we encourage families to openly communicate with educators via face-to-face chats, emails or phone.

In order to keep you fully informed about your child’s day and what’s happening around the centre we use the communication app OWNA.

OWNA is a mobile app where families can download the app and keep up to date on their child’s day.

Educators at That Little Kindy use OWNA to communicate with families and document about each child’s day. This includes details like:

  • Daily Menu
  • Daily Information (how much your child ate, their sleep times, etc)
  • Centre’s roster to see who is working with your child
  • Daily Curriculum Reflection
  • Your child’s observations
  • Sending/receiving messages from the educators (eg. you can mark if your child is absent)
  • Have access to the centre’s policies and procedures
  • View newsletters
  • View important dates and Events at the service
  • That Little Kindy’s Policies
  • That Little Kindy’s Quality Improvement Plan

That Little Kindy holds fortnightly workshops hosted by Rheanna from Ngandabaa who shares with the children the basics of Aboriginal Art, Aboriginal symbolism through Ngandabaa’s unique resources and learn how art is used to share stories by the Traditional Land Owners.
