About the Centre
Welcome to Little Giants Killara, where we provide the highest quality Care and Education to all children from the ages of 6 weeks to 6 years. Our wonderful Centre is a premium, purpose built childcare facility, designed to provide a natural and family friendly environment, inclusive for all.
We believe child development must be approached in a holistic, fun and educational way.
Learning journeys are initiated from each child’s emerging interests – this evokes a sense of curiosity, active exploration and confidence within our children, creating life-long learners for years to come.
Famous for our local flora and fauna, we use the natural bushland surroundings to teach and foster concepts of sustainability – as well respect towards the environment – as part of our learning and developmental programs.
All our highly skilled and committed Educators are dedicated to guiding and working alongside each child as they grow and flourish from each developmental stage to the next. We will always provide a nurturing and happy educational environment, where children can feel confident to express their individuality or feelings and are free to be their true self.
Our partnerships with families are valued, understanding that a child’s very first Teacher, is their parent. Your voice will play a large part in the educational programs developed for your child and your preferences, customs and beliefs respected and acknowledged.
We offer a seamless indoor/outdoor program along with our daily rituals including teatime, progressive mealtimes and outdoor sleeping circles.
Our indoor environments are innovative and ‘set up’ with children in mind. Each experience or learning area has been designed to inspire imagination and creativity with nooks for solo play and large spaces to encourage group work. Our outdoor environments inspire children to explore, discover and investigate the natural environment around them, with quiet cushioned areas for relaxation and vast climbing equipment to promote physical development
Our Centre bus allows us to offer a fantastic weekly Forest School Program, excursions to museums and parklands, swimming lessons as well as many other highlighted interests which present themselves during the year. We also engage in a variety of incursions/events such as; French lessons, dance lessons, yoga sessions, cooking lessons, family date nights, disco’s and so much more!
Along with Early Education, we also provide an extensive school readiness program for Kinder Children, which is implemented by our Qualified Primary and Early Education Teacher.
We believe in providing each Child with rich and meaningful experiences, opportunities and knowledge to assist them in taking the next big step in their Education journey.
Our affiliation with AFL team “The Giants” gives our families the opportunity to see special event games, meet and greet the players, as well as pre game shows and presentations.
(Plus we always have little giveaways!)

Meet the Centre Manager
My name is Belinda Gollan and I am the Centre Manager of Little Giants Killara. I hold my Bachelor of Education and have been working in the Early Childhood industry for many years in a variety of different roles from Lead Educator, Assistant Manager and Centre Manager.
I love working in a child-focussed environment and am passionate about Children’s Education and Care. I aim to provide a loving, caring, safe and home-like environment that is welcoming, warm and inclusive.
I am thankful every day that I have the opportunity to play a part in shaping children’s lives and helping them develop a lifelong love of learning. I feel truly privileged to be entrusted with their care and be involved in their learning journey.
As an Early Childhood Teacher and Centre Manager, I am passionate about fostering lifelong learning from an early age. I have a commitment to making sure that each child’s needs are met and that every child is given the space and opportunity to grow and learn. I believe that children should be given choices, responsibilities and opportunities to initiate their own learning as well as being part of shared learning experiences.
I am extremely enthusiastic about Mentoring and sharing my skills, experiences and knowledge with Our Team of Teachers and Educators. Together, we have created a commitment to giving our Children the Highest Quality Learning Experiences, Education and Care.
I look forward to getting to know your Family and to creating strong, positive partnerships with you, where together we can work on achieving the best possible outcomes for your precious children.
Please know that my door is always open and feel free to speak to me at any time about any questions or queries you may have.
