Family Handbook - Developing Independency | Goodstart

Stepping up to Toddlers

Toddlers are full of energy and curiosity. Learning through their everyday routines, this is the age when children start to become aware of their independence. We talk to you to get your insight into your child’s interests and needs, so we can plan their program in a way that helps them build confidence, interact with others and develop new skills.

Our educators use this knowledge to guide the children through new experiences around early language, maths, science and more, in a way that interests them and inspires them to explore.

Your toddler’s communication skills move ahead at a remarkable rate as they progress from baby sounds to words and phrases, and his or her educator will plan engaging ways to build early literacy skills and communication with others. As toddlers become more active, it’s a great time for developing new gross motor skills too, so our educators plan for plenty of active play, indoors and out.
