About Our Toddler Program

Our Toddler Program recognises that toddlers learn best in an environment that allows for active learning experiences and hands-on exploration.

Toddlers are sensory explorers who develop their understanding of relationships, their world, and their place within it through their senses.

At Bright Steps Academy, we provide toddlers with the ideal learning environment to develop a strong sense of identity, wellbeing, social skills, and positive foundations for a life-long love of learning.

What Learning Looks Like for Toddlers

Individual Journeys

We carefully observe each child’s needs and interests to implement personalised learning experiences.

Hands-On Exploration

We offer hands-on experiences that allow children to safely discover, explore, and learn at their own pace.

Active Learning

Our free-flowing environments encourage active learning indoors and outdoors.

Open-Ended Experiences

We encourage problem-solving skills and curiosity through play and open-ended learning experiences.

Literacy and Numeracy

We foster early literacy and numeracy skills through meaningful everyday experiences, songs, and stories.

Connection with Nature

We provide toddlers with beautiful natural environments that encourage wellbeing and a connection with nature.

Learning Environment

Our free-flowing learning spaces provide toddlers with a stimulating environment that supports hands-on learning and exploration.

Key features include project tables, rotating learning stations, an art and craft area, a cubby-styled reading nook, dramatic play, a home corner, a construction zone, and sensory spaces.

Learning for our toddlers is designed to foster curiosity, creativity, and independence while supporting all areas of children’s social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development.

Individual Learning Journeys

At Bright Steps Academy, our early childhood educators welcome each new child with respect and admiration for who they are today and the infinite possibilities of who they will become.

Our team takes the time to get to know each child through careful observation to understand their unique needs, interests, learning style, and stage of development.

Learning experiences are personalised to each child to support their optimal growth and development. This is reflected in each child’s unique learning plan.

Communicating with Families

We believe that the best outcomes for children are achieved when educators and families work together in partnership.

We actively communicate with families throughout the day to provide updates on their child’s experiences, eating, sleeping, and toileting routines to provide consistency and harmony between our service and home.

Families receive daily in-person updates from their children’s educators as well as regular daily app updates through our communication app, OWNA.

Daily Routine

The daily routine for our toddlers provides consistency and certainty so that children know what to expect throughout the day.

The rhythm of our day includes a balance of indoor and outdoor play, music and wellbeing activities, group times, rest time, nutritious meals, and spontaneous and intentional teaching times throughout the day.

Regular toileting, hand washing, and nappy changes occur throughout the day. Families receive daily updates about their child’s learning, eating, sleeping, and toileting via our family communication app.
