Our Early Learning Program for Toddlers (2-3 Years)

Aurrum Kids’ childcare for 2-3 year olds aims to create a strong foundation for future learning. Through our carefully curated activities and play-based learning, our preschool for toddlers strives to ignite your child’s natural curiosity and passion for exploring the world around them. 

About Aurrum Kids’ Toddler Program

Aurrum Kids’ carefully designed toddler program caters to the developmental needs of children aged 2 to 3 years, ensuring they embark on an exciting journey of growth, self-discovery and learning.

Flexible Routines

At Aurrum Kids’ childcare for toddlers, we understand the significance of following a flexible routine that caters to the unique needs of each child. A flexible routine provides a general framework that balances essential activities, like meals, sleep and rest, with plenty of opportunities for play and exploration. This allows children to feel secure and have a sense of belonging while still having the freedom to explore their interests.

Sleep and rest

Understanding the importance of rest and sleep in a toddler’s daily routine, Aurrum Kids ensures that each child receives the necessary downtime to recharge. Our sleep and rest periods are thoughtfully scheduled to align with the natural rhythms of 2-3 year olds, providing a calming environment that ensures children are refreshed and ready for learning and play. 

Our Educators

Our educators are Certificate 3 or Diploma qualified and bring extensive experience to the table, ensuring that your child is in the best possible hands. With a low child-to-educator ratio, we prioritise giving individualised attention to every child, understanding their needs and interests. Our educators are deeply passionate about fostering the development of young minds and are committed to building a safe and encouraging learning environment.

Our menu

Healthy and nutritious meals are essential for your toddler’s growth and development. At our preschool for 2-3 year olds, we take great care in crafting a balanced and delicious menu that caters to the dietary requirements of growing children. We use fresh, locally sourced ingredients to prepare meals that not only satisfy taste buds but also promote healthy eating at childcare.
