Right from birth, our youngest children are ready to soak up all the wonders our world has to offer. Every day is a brave new frontier and another opportunity to learn. Whether it’s moving, communicating or exploring their surroundings, their world is full of awe and our team at Little Feet feel so privileged to help your child through this wonderful journey. Throughout their day with us, we aim to make their transition into our centre as seamless as possible.
Our educators work closely with you to find out about their home routine, their sleeping & eating patterns. We are in constant communication with you through their day with our Story Park App as well as phone calls as to how their day is going. To support your child through this journey, we aim to provide a peaceful environment where they are cognitively challenged, physically safe & emotionally nurtured through their time with our caring and qualified educators.
(15 months - 2 years)
The Tiny Tot age is where your child will start imagining and creating through pretend play – for example, pretending to drink from a cup. As your child grows older, pretend play becomes more complex. Your child will begin to enjoy spending time with other children, even if they are not directly involving other children in their play.
At this age your child may be keen to develop their independence and self help skills such as feeding them self. At Little Feet we strongly encourage the development of these skills our lunch times are relaxed, unhurried to allow time for your child to refine their self help skills at their own little pace.
Your child will begin to experience some new emotions at this ages such as Anger and Frustration, these can be challenging to deal with. Our program at this age focuses a great deal on emotional intelligence, through fun and exciting experiences your child will learn to identify their feelings and strategies to cope with them.
Toddlers (2-3 years)
The toddler age is where we start to see their curiosity and language development really start to emerge. The Toddler children are a busy and energetic bunch of children that are keen to take on new challenges and develop their physical skills at a surprising rate. At this age, the toddler’s independence skills are starting to emerge. We offer guidance on how to share, engage with other children and to participate in group experiences with the educators and their friends.
Your child’s transition from being dependent to independent is strongly supported in areas such as toilet training, independence at meal times and following their Educator’s directions. Our educators at Little Feet are ready to answer any of the ‘Why’ questions that you may have as well as providing learning experiences tailored to your child’s interests and needs.
Preschool (3-5 years)
Our pre-schoolers are about to embark on a time where their world starts to grow immensely. This is through new experiences, their new-found independence, engaging with a wide variety of new friends and people as well as a time where they are truly comfortable within themselves.
Our preschool program prepares them for the future they haven’t created yet. It includes a comprehensive curriculum that is based around the Early Years Learning Framework that prepares for the next stages in their life including school readiness. It is a play-based program where children are engaged in small group learning, stemming from their interests. Through choice, challenge and practice, they will continue to develop independent life skills, and grow in self-confidence and self-identity.
