Our Toddler learning journeys contain a daily rhythmic routine, recognizing and embracing that Toddlers’ routines are an important opportunity for learning. Building a balanced curriculum encompassing predictable tasks while having endless opportunities to explore and have fun is essential for Toddlers to build their self-confidence, self- awareness, communication and social skills, developing their emotional intelligence. Developing these skills provides positive foundations for life long learning.
The program is guided by the Early Years Learning Framework and is delivered by qualified Early Childhood Educators. Please look at our Activities page for further details of our educational program.
