Lower Kindergarten – 2 to 3 years
In the Kindergarten our toddlers begin to encounter a very simple structure to their day. They continue to be given an exciting environment both inside and out, offering them a wide variety of early learning experiences.
Planning is sensitively formulated around the interests and developmental needs of the child. They have lots of fun and their daily routines both inside and out with language development, singing, art and craft, developmental music sessions, dance, physical fitness and their motor skills. We introduce a few additional language words and songs as they learn to greet each other with languages from around the world. The children are given lots of help and re-assurance when they start toilet training and we work closely with our parents at this important stage. Our staff have been selected for their experience with children of this age and to ensure that encouragement and cuddles are plentiful.
For children aged between 2 years and 3 years we provide a staff to child ratio of 1:4.
