Welcome to the Kurilpa Toddler room!
In the Toddler room, we believe each child is unique and special and it is important that they feel valued, cared-for and have a sense of security from those around them. By taking observations and interacting with the children, we act as a guide or facilitator to enhance their learning and development through play.
The Toddler community is where self help and self confident skills shine! We highly value our Toddler children’s abilities and believe in fostering their sense of achievement through supporting all challenges they may face. Through observation and conversation we are able to provide a unique program where the environment is valued and used as the third teacher. We firmly believe in cultivating a strong connection with nature, spending as much time as possible in our amazing back yard and local community. Through developing each child’s sense of self, we are able to support their continuing journey on the road to understanding who they are, what they can accomplish and who they might become. We believe in creating a learning community that encompasses all opportunities and input from Kurilpa, home and the wider environment.
We look forward to working alongside you and your family during your time with us in the Toddler Room.
