Our History

Learning Adventures was founded in 2008, after Director Leanne Gundry searched unsuccessfully for the kind of engaging play-based Asian language program she wanted for her own children.  Influenced by the Reggio Emilia approach to early childhood education, Learning Adventures’ Japanese programs for primary and pre-school children commenced in 2009 with a pilot program at Majura Primary and playgroups for younger children and their carers in Watson.  Learning Adventures have now expanded their primary programs and also provide tailored pre-school programs, including ‘tasters’, at Preschools and childcare centres across Canberra, with plans to expand to other locations in the future.
