Current Opportunities

The Eltham College Foundation has supported Eltham College since 1982. When the Foundation entered the child care arena in 2002, it did so with the assistance of Eltham College’s wealth of experience in Early Learning. Whilst significantly influenced by the Reggio Emilia approach to early learning, our Centres’ programmes are founded in best practice early learning and care principles from across the world. As educators, our role is to nurture a child’s curiosity and encourage them to find their own solutions.

Operating under the brand name Little Flyers learning Centres, we are continually looking to expand our services.  We currently operate  Centres – Caroline Springs, Eltham North, Laurimar, Laurimar Township, Melbourne City (Collins Street) and Kids on Collins.
