Little Flyers Childcare opens at Darwin Airport Central

An aviation-themed childcare center has opened at Darwin Airport Central in Australia. Little Flyers Darwin is described as a state-of-the-art facility, extremely spacious, with a long list of unique features. Highlights include a replica airport control tower for children to explore, with the aviation theme continuing throughout the playground.

There are also outdoor water misters, to keep those playing cool, while indoors the area is split according to age group. Staff are specially trained, helping and befriending children, and offering programs focused on nutrition, health, wellbeing and learning. This includes meals prepared throughout the day, with nappies and sunscreen also provided. Little Flyers Darwin is open on weekdays from 6.30am-6.30pm.

Joanne Buckley, director at the center, said, “We really have a first class facility here at Little Flyers Darwin. We encourage parents – or soon to be parents – to come and have a look, meet our staff and see the quality of our education and care facility.”

Patrick Bellot, project manager at Northern Territory Airports, which operates the Darwin location among others, added, “Darwin Airport Central is fast becoming a hub for new business, premium facilities and ground-breaking projects. We’re proud to welcome Little Flyers Darwin to our airport community. And we’re proud to, yet again, have contracted a local builder using 100% local sub-contractors to construct this premium facility.”
