South Perth Early Learning School Toddler Overview
The first three years of a child’s life is critical in their overall brain and personal development. That’s why we have the most experienced educators and education consultants to help develop our curriculum for each room.
The toddlers’ room is imaginative and full of interest and new opportunities. The toddler routine allows for flexibility. Children will associate certain times of the day with various activities and anticipate the next event and what is entailed at mealtimes, sleep or rest times.
At this stage a child learns basic concepts, like health care, for example, washing hands before a meal.

Vocabulary is learned at a fast pace and interaction with other children and educators provides an ideal environment for this. Social and cognitive development takes place and within the toddlers’ room, guidance in these learning areas is evident.
- Our educators are well versed with best practices, including Steiner, Shichida and Reggio Emilia.*
The National Quality Standards and the Early Years Learning Framework are implemented, both in the design of the spaces and the planned programs, based on the children’s interests, needs and developmental stages.
Frequent discussion with parents ensures that there is consistency between home and school.
