Little Sprouts learn in Baldivis
A child's best chance at life starts with solid pre-kindergarten learning, according to Alpha Sprouts Academy.
Co-owner Robyn Fitzgerald said at its core the new early learning academy was about preparing children for acceptable behaviour in primary school and helping them develop literacy, numeracy and communication skills as soon as possible.
Operating from the Boo Book room at the newly opened Mary Davies Library and Community Centre in Baldivis, Alpha Sprouts Academy has already had a positive effect.
Parent Lisa Foletta said her three-year-old son Cohen had only attended four sessions but was already learning new skills.
Mrs Fitzgerald is a qualified teacher who has experience working with children with disabilities and her business partner, Sarah Smith, is a qualified behavioural therapist.
Mrs Smith said most children needed the concepts of how to share, make friends and be nice to be reinforced.
Mrs Fitzgerald said the academy was open to children from two-and-a-half years old to four years old.
"We are registered carers, so children can be left here while parents take a break or bond with other siblings," she said.
