Early Experiences (1-3 yrs)
We know your toddler is ready to socialize, make friends and to be introduced to new challenges in a safe and nurturing environment. Our qualified childcare educators are trained and accredited in the Lifelong Learning Curriculum by Affinity Education Group. This incorporates the Abecedarian Approach, a progressive and personalised way for toddlers to learn to communicate their thoughts, emotions and intentions. Our educators are recognised for the happy and loving environments they create where toddlers laugh, learn and thrive.
By choosing Kids Academy, you know your child will be welcomed into a safe, stimulating and fun environment to enhance learning in their early years.
What toddlers learn
As toddlers start to communicate their interests, share their ideas and connect with other children, they develop self-identity and awareness of the world around them. They learn the impact their actions and behaviours can have on others, and how to participate in learning opportunities.
Where toddlers learn
During Early Experiences your toddler will enjoy Lifelong Learning Curriculum zones. We take pride in our learning environments including indoor and outdoor environments where they can choose between solitary, small and large group play. Their sense of adventure and wonder is stimulated as they are encouraged to create and explore every day.
How toddlers learn
Toddlers learn best through play, supported by gentle and fun interactions with their educators and with other children. Our educators reflect on each child’s unique interests and provide opportunities for children to contribute to their own learning and development. We consider children’s opinions and allow them to be involved in decisions which affect them.
Our nursery rooms and our program, Healthy Beginnings, provides your baby an environment that promotes a holistic growth and development approach to learning through the first year of life. We provide a warm and safe space for our caring and gentle educators to nurture and develop relationships with your baby, so your child will grow trust and a sense of belonging.
Our Toddler room environments and Lifelong Learning Curriculum incorporates the Abecedarian Approach which is a progressive and personalised way for toddlers to learn to communicate their thoughts, emotions and intentions. Our educators take into account your child's opinions and ideas, keeping them engaged throughout their learning journey.
Our Preschool rooms have been designed to facilitate the learning required for your child to be a resilient and confident learner, prepared for the transition to Primary School. Our Teachers deliver programs such as STEM and School Readiness, facilitating the social, emotional and physical development children require in order for their intellectual or academic areas to grow.
