Minamberang Room – Toddlers

We recognise that every child learns from birth, but some children require different opportunities, learning spaces and specific supports in order to learn and thrive. We value children’s strengths and differences and through our curriculum, we ensure that every child is able to experience success and is motivated to accept new challenges through which to learn and grow.

Children’s wellbeing, identity and independence are dependent on communication. Young children respond verbally and non- verbally to what they see, hear, touch feel and taste. We provide many opportunities for our toddlers to become engaged in play so that we can celebrate their enjoyment of discovery, support their expression of feelings and respond to their thoughts and ideas.

We believe that children are capable, confident and independent citizens who are able to contribute to decisions that affect them. We provide the opportunity for choice and time to do things for themselves in a relaxed, supportive environment.
