When our parents first migrated to Australia in the early 70’s leaving behind family, friendships and community connections, they did so to offer us better opportunities and brighter prospects. Our story echoes many migrant stories across Australia, for we Australians truly do come ‘from all the lands on earth.’ Our parents impressed upon us the value of education as a portal for progress and self-actualisation. They encouraged us to take advantage of opportunities in our new country ‘to build a better future for ourselves and our communities.’ We took those opportunities, and now we seek to give back to our community by giving our children the bright start they deserve, encouraging them to create a future worthy to be inherited by future generations.
The Little Wonders Montessori philosophy is based on the wholistic development of the child. We take a broad vision of education encompassing physical, emotional, mental, intellectual, social and spiritual dimensions.
We believe that learning is best done when children are actively involved and engaged in their own knowledge construction through positive experiences within optimal learning environments. Thus, our approach utilise responsive classrooms and experienced educators geared to inspire children towards a life-long love of learning.
By valuing each child as an individual, we empower our students to become confident, independent learners with dispositions of optimism, openness, curiosity and resilience.
As many of us are parents ourselves, we realise and respect the level of trust you place in us when enrolling your child, and we’re committed to providing the highest quality care and education possible.
We promise to:
We believe that our hand-picked educators are our greatest asset. The specialised knowledge and experience they bring enables us to focus on your child’s growth, development and learning. We take pride in our team and their long-term commitment to our families and the service. We take the time to create meaningful relationships with you and your children.
We will keep families engaged and involved with their child’s time spent in our care by utilising Storypark.
Our environment will support and nurture the individual needs of our children allowing them to explore their interests, grow at their own pace but challenging them to reach their potential as they awaken their love of learning.
We will ensure your growing child’s nutritional needs are met and any special dietary requirements are catered for and promote wellbeing through fostering a strong sense of community that values inclusion, tolerance and respect.
Born and raised in Malaysia, migrating to Queensland was a great experience. I have worked both in the Family Day-care environment and centre-based environment past over 10 years. I love working with little minds, nurturing their growth and watching them blossom.
I have an undying love for fiction. My reading interests range from Sidney Sheldon to Nora Roberts to any author that can trap magic within the pages of their book. I enjoy inspiring little readers. There is nothing more satisfying than watching a child enjoy a story of their choice.
When I am not at work, I enjoy artwork and baking. My kids are my best critics, but they have nothing bad to say about my chocolate brownies ever!
Between downing hot chocolate and blending smoothies, I usually spend my time learning new skills and go on adventures with my family.
I moved from NSW to QLD three years ago and I am currently studying Bachelor of Primary Education (majoring in Special Education).
When I am not working or studying I like to spend my time outdoors, camping, gardening or swimming.
I also enjoy reading, cooking and investigating my family history. I have a passion for loud and fast cars! My favourite is the 1957 Chevy Bel Air.
I first discovered the Montessori Method 3 years ago. I am currently studying a Diploma of Montessori Early Education as well as a Diploma of Early Childhood education and care. I love being in a lead educator role and watching children develop confidence and independence through the Montessori method. I aspire to study a bachelor of early childhood in the future to become a qualified ECT.
When I am not at work and not studying I am a devoted Mum to my 4 year old daughter. I also keep busy looking after my 2 cats and my puppy. I am also a bit of a foodie and enjoy exploring different cafes, restaurants and food markets around Brisbane.
Hello Everyone, Claire here🤗
Growing up watching mum who is a teacher always inspired me being a loving and caring teacher like her. I migrated to Australia 5 years ago, jumped into the early childhood education and fell in love ever since!
I love watching little friends growing up to an inquisitive mind wonders! I’m really grateful that I can be part of their early education; assisting children building their foundation of life strong along with families☺️
One of my passions in education with our little wonders is STEM especially in science experiment👩🔬👨🔬 I also love experiencing new adventures! When I’m not working or studying, I go to rock climbing, surfing or trying new things to see what other interesting things in the world!
I like to travel to different countries, I’ve been to 5 countries and looking forward to more travel adventure and explore new things.
During my spare time, I love to spend time cooking in the kitchen learning to cook different cuisines from other countries such as Filipino, Indian and Chinese food.
