The rooms are divided into different learning areas including home corner, construction, sensory play, art and craft and relaxation time.
In the Water and Badu Rooms, we cater for children that are just beginning to learn their independence and for the more developed (egocentric!) 2 year olds.
We aim to develop individual skills as well as extend language vocabulary, self-help skills, build focus and concentration to encourage the starting and finishing of activities.
'Badu' means 'Water' in the local aboriginal dialect. Members of the local aboriginal community assisted us in keeping our theme of 'Water' for our toddlers.
We work on building these skills through music and movement, language groups, art & craft experiences and through the child’s regular, daily routine.
As with the infants, our toddlers are observed on a 6-8 week cycle to assist our staff with an objective set for each individual. Again these objectives are incorporated into our program to assist your child in reaching their developmental milestones.
Child friendly toilets and sinks to increase toileting independence and our staff are trained and more than happy to help parents in toilet training their children.
A large outdoor area with two large sandpits for exploration, motor skill development and separate outdoor time to preschoolers.
Equipped with interactive whiteboards and Ipads to extend the children’s learning as well as prepare them for the electronic equipment used in the modern classrooms.
Before age 2 or 3, your child is ambidextrous; it isn’t until around 2 or 3 that they start to favour their left or right hand. This leaves many to question why 90% of kids are right-handed? The answer to this question is still largely unknown. Kids with left-handed parents are more likely to be left handed, but science thinks it might also have something to do with social norms. In cultures where left-handed is seen as “unacceptable” there are even fewer left-handed individuals.
