Based on the principles of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA), therapy and intervention take place at our centres in a warm and welcoming environment, that feels very similar to kinder or pre-school.

Teaching can also take place at home, kinder or community. So even though we have purpose-designed centres, we are flexible and provide support in the environments best suited to your child.

Our goal at Little Learners is to help your child gain the skills needed to be a confident lifelong learner, so they can succeed in everyday life. We help them build skills they need now, as well as those that are important in the future. Another key focus is to work with you, so we can equip your family with the relevant skills and strategies to help your child thrive.
