What is Smaller is Better child care?
Our Smaller is Better philosophy is simple.
We keep classes small, so each child benefits from the individual support they need for a confident transition to school.
We pride ourselves on our close-knit community and strong genuine relationships with our families.
We're different to corporate franchises. You'll never 'be just another number' to us!

“Darci’s confidence has improved so much since starting at Playful Learners, and we’ve seen a great improvement in her writing ability and communication”

What makes us different?
Our intimate, close-knit community helps us provide extra benefits for all of our families:
1. Small classes for greater school preparedness
2. We're school-based: children are familiar to the school environment so they're ready to learn on day one of 'big school'
3. Stable, quality staff: our Educators build strong relationships with each family - we don't require a rotating roster of casual staff
In a small class, Educators plan semi-structured lessons that feel like play.
Each child is engaged based on their individual needs, meaning the educational outcomes are much stronger. And more fun!
What do parents say about us?
"Staff are kind, friendly, down to earth and really good at working with my changing hours. Always a smile when picking up my child, that’s if she is willing to come home 😜"
