Learning through play

Developing your little one’s thirst for learning is something we love to do. Our highly qualified teachers and educators develop programs for your children in both the Possums room and Pre Kindy class.

You will begin to notice the difference in your children as they come home to share their new knowledge with you. 

We are often told by teachers at schools that they can identify the children who come through Little Possums.

Early Years Philosophy

We provide a unique home environment in a natural and environmentally friendly setting, which allows the children to learn to respect nature and develop knowledge of our world and its sustainability.

A Word

From Our Director

“I have been in the Early Education industry for over 22 years, I studied in England and ran a pre-school before migrating to the beautiful Perth hills in 2005 and have worked at Little Possums ever since.

Our reputation in the community is outstanding, this is evident when new families come to the centre and comment on how warm and inviting the atmosphere is, and how it has such a special feeling. We constantly receive positive feedback from parents and members of the community about the centre and staff. It is an asset that our wonderful educators are long standing and completely devoted to their jobs.

I am very proud to be the Director of such a successful Early Education Centre.”

– Helen Faulkner
