Since April, my two daughters have attended Little Village Buderim, and our experience has been overwhelmingly positive. True to its name, they've cultivated a nurturing 'little village' atmosphere. The educators there are incredibly kind and welcoming. I recall feeling anxious when dropping off my youngest for her first day at daycare, but the staff went the extra mile to ensure a seamless and reassuring transition for both of us. Additionally, the app they provide, which offers photo updates and daily summaries, is a fantastic tool that lets parents join in on their child's journey.

Our little Girl started here last year in the nursery and we have been quite impressed with the facility. Plenty of lovely staff to take care of our little one. Enjoyed reading her first report card which showed us they know her quite well ! Hope the facility continues to do well under its new management.Nick and Karly

Such a fantastic daycare with beautiful facilities and amazing staff. Great communication with the Xplor app, which lets me know what our little person is doing during the day. Love the bush kindy activities and healthy food options.

Our son has been at this daycare since the end of 2020 starting in the nursery - I don’t have a bad thing to say about them they’re such a lovely team and really focus on supporting our son and family! As a first time mum I was very nervous about daycare but they absolutely put my mind at ease with regular updates and my son just absolutely loves going there! He has made beautiful friends and loves all the challenges - I credit them for a lot of his social and educational growth!

Little Village is like no other! From the moment you walk through the front doors you feel at home. Smiling faces, happy children and the smell of delicious food being prepared by the Chef to fill hungry bellies. If your looking for a centre to call home away from home you can't go past Little Village Buderim.

I would highly recommend Little Village to any families who are looking for a Centre with an outstanding philosophy, incredible indoor and outdoor space (including a bush kindy) and with the most caring educators. It takes a village to raise a child and this is The Village we want to be a part of :)

Little Village provide a truly child-centred approach to early learning. Their attention to detail from the environment they create, to the team they employee, the food and activities they provide are all exemplary. We are so pleased to be a part of the Little Village community and would un-reservedly recommend Little Village to any family. Our daughter's life is richer and more beautiful for being a "Little Villager" :)

Cannot fault. The women looking after our children as so kind and caring, the children are they are all so happy. They have a wonder selection of resources and toys, the activities for the children are so engaging. Our boys love it. They are thriving. Management is so understanding and it truly is a happy little village.

My child has been going to LVB for over a year now and we love it. The facilities are kept clean, there's a great selection of toys to play with, the playground and sandpit great. My child is catered to his very specific dietary needs and the educators are happy to use our cloth nappies on him. I love all the educators I've met there too...and kinda wish I went to daycare!

Little Village is an outstanding centre with great amenities and very caring early learning educators. This centre is second to none. Highly recommend this centre!

Beautiful set up with plenty of natural shade and kids spend most day outside. The teachers were lovely, caring and inclusive. We also had special dietary requirements ,which were all accommodated. For all important points they get 5 stars….the only negative (for me at least) is the use of I pads. Most parents I spoke to were not thrilled about it. I do think it would be more suitable to let go of the ipads and it would offer a point of difference, as most Centres have followed this questionable trend.
