Child Care Curriculum: Toddlers
Our Toddler Program
At Karratha Early Learning we provide your toddler with the opportunity to continue their early learning journey by exploring the world they live in. Toddlers in this classroom are exploring areas of multi-cultural, social inclusion, speech development, mathematics and language, toilet training and social awareness. Educators provide these wonderful opportunities within the curriculum to help develop your toddlers' learning and development. We have an educational program that involves intentional teaching. We use development milestones to assess the students' development. Each child has a unique journey and we take each toddler's development into account and this informs the educator's intentional plans. From this information it helps us design the education environment, making it another resource to facilitate the toddlers' learning.
Having experienced educators at Karratha Early Learning means that they can help follow the toddler’s interests, and, during the play based learning, support the toddler in their learning and development. When the toddlers are developmentally ready they transition into pre-kindy classroom.
