Play Based Learning

Children learn so much through play. It allows them to explore, discover, negotiate, take risks, create meaning and solve problems – all the important foundations for developing literacy, numeracy and social skills.

While it may sound simple and easy, play-based learning is a complex form of natural enquiry that requires an experienced educator who knows each child’s overall development, emerging strengths and interests.


Caring, Friendly Educators

Our people love what they do. They build respectful relationships with children. They let them learn and complete tasks at their own pace. They listen and build up your child’s self-esteem. As well, our centre embraces equal opportunity, diversity and inclusion, so every kid achieves success.

All staff at Little Scribblers are fully-trained, qualified and accredited by Department of Education and Training.

EYLF Based Curriculum

At Little Scribblers Southport, the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) forms the foundation for our programs. The Framework recognises that early childhood is a vital period in children’s learning and development. EYLF embodies the idea of ‘Belonging, Being and Becoming’.

The EYLF defines the principles, practices and outcomes essential to every early learning program. It is designed to ensure all children receive high-quality early learning experiences.

Meet the Hearts and Minds Behind Little Scribblers Early Learning Centres


Little Scribblers is a Family Business, we're - Jackie and Silvia- sisters, in fact, we're Twins. WE LOVE working with children in a preschool setting, and are both passionate about children and their learning! Our story is quite interesting and what we believe is very similar to what every working parent believes, in quality care, where education is beyond imagination.

About twelve years ago Silvia needed to get back to work and was quite saddened and even dismayed as we visited local centres looking for the right place for her daughter. Initially, she was enrolled in a family centre that loved and cared for her very much, however, we soon had to move to a new house which meant we had to find a new centre. 

The struggle repeated as we searched and searched for a centre that had that wow factor, we wanted a centre where education and learning were imperative. Eventually, we decided to take a risk, and open our own…we were able to offer an innovative, stimulating and refreshing approach to traditional childcare.

We were so excited to plant the seed of our very own brand new franchise of Little Scribblers. The funny thing is, by following our dream and taking a leap, we found life's calling - children and preschool services. Let us remind you that, first and foremost, we are PARENTS - just like you.

We very much enjoy owning our boutique styled franchise, we have a strong team, both our husbands are also involved in the family franchise, which helps make the strong team.

I hope that after you decide to tour our program and enrol, that we will become partners in your child's education and daily care. At Little Scribblers Early Learning Centres, we LOVE what we do and accept nothing but the very best. Welcome to our School!
