About the Centre
Little Giants Oran Park is an innovative Childcare and Early Learning facility dedicated to providing a safe, supportive and nurturing environments for all children aged six weeks to 12 years. Led by a Team of fully qualified and friendly Early Childhood Educators, we are passionate about providing the highest level of Education, for your child.
Our commitment is to not only provide a safe and nurturing ‘home away from home’ for your Child, but to also make each day special and fun while building a strong foundation for future learning. Children at Little Giants Oran Park will learn through a play-based program that uses art, sports, games, activities and interactive technology, providing a well-rounded and fully immersive learning experience.
Along with our interactive play-zones, indoor discovery areas, secure playground and water park, children learn valuable skills through our unique Forest School program which helps foster an appreciation and respect for the outdoor environment. We complete regular excursions within the local Oran Park community which help our Children to build a sense of belonging and engagement.
The nutritional needs of our Children are met with our onsite Chef – preparing fresh and healthy meals, all approved by Nutrition Australia. All dietary requirements and personal preferences are respected with substitute meals.
At Little Giants Oran Park, we believe that by creating a diverse and inclusive environment for all, we strengthen the spirit of dialogue and collaboration. We endeavour to empower our Children, Families and our Community in ways that motivate and inspire excellence in Early Childhood Education and Care. Learning takes time, patience and persistence and our Educators are fully qualified to provide tailored support to meet the needs of each individual child – we are also lucky to have many Educators who are bilingual and others proficient in sign language.
Here at our Centre we also cater for Before and After School Care with Oran Park Public School. Our Educators will work with the Children on homework as well as providing them with a relaxing environment focusing on their interests. We also offer vacation care for the school holidays – inclusive of excursions and themed days.
The best way to see what our premium Education facility has to offer is to come and see it for yourself! We welcome all Children and Families to come and view Little GIANTS Oran Park and meet our friendly Team, so give us a call to book a time today.

Meet the Centre Manager
My name is Samantha Di Pede and I feel so privileged to be the Centre Manager for Little Giants Oran Park. I hold my Diploma in Early Childhood Education and Care as well as my Diploma in Leadership and Management.
I have been in the Early Childhood sector for the last 8 years holding a variety of Educational roles, leading into my current Centre Manger position.
I enjoy building positive relationships with Children, their Families and my Team.
It is incredibly important to me that we provide a High-Quality Learning environment for our Children but also a reliable service for our Families.
As a mum of 4 boys myself, I understand the need for Families to be able to leave their precious Children in our capable hands, with the knowledge that they will be cared for in a safe, friendly nurturing environment.
I believe that each child is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically and socially.
It is my desire as an Educator to help and guide children to meet the fullest potential in these areas by providing an environment that is inclusive, supports risk taking and invites a sharing of ideas. There are 3 elements that I believe are essential to establishing such an environment.
1) Our Educator’s acting as a guide.
2) Encouraging and allowing a Child’s natural curiosity to direct his/her learning.
3) Promoting respect for all living things (People, Animals, Nature, Community, Environments)
Teaching is a process of learning about new philosophies and new strategies.
Learning from Families and the Community.
Learning from colleagues and especially…
Learning from the children.
Children have taught me to open my mind to the joys, the innocence and the diversity of ideas in the world.
I can never forget how to smile with the new, cherish the old and laugh with the children. I look forward to meeting all who come through Little Giants entrance and working cooperatively with you to provide an exciting, stimulating and educational environment for your children to grow and develop!
