About the program
The first five years have so much to do with how the next 80 turn out.
The Hutchins School Leap into Learning program is a fun and engaging play-based program designed for boys and girls aged from birth to 5 years. Located in our purpose built Early Learning Centre, our program offers an experience that fosters children’s development in all areas and provides the opportunity to meet our staff, get to know other families and experience our unique learning environment. The program is run by our Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten teachers who are Early Childhood trained.
‘Our role as early childhood educators is to ensure we work well with families to build a strong educational foundation for children to succeed and be happy throughout their school life. We work with families to nurture each child’s self-esteem, a love of learning, a sense of belonging, and a connection to community.
Families enjoy the social atmosphere and culture of Leap into Learning where they can come in, make a cup of tea, share their thoughts and enjoy some time playing and learning with their children. Provided at no cost, the program is an opportunity for parents and carers to find out more about the first few years of their child’s development’ – Stella
Play gives children a chance to practice what they are learning.

Our program includes gross motor, fine motor, sensory, imaginative and numerical experiences, as well as activities including cooking, song and dance, story-time, art, craft, drama and movement, outdoor play, bikes, ball games, themed sessions, water play activities, dress-ups and many more.
We look forward to welcoming you into our Hutchins community.
