The Toddler Program
The toddler stage (15 months to 2.9 years) is characterized by the need for independence yet continued dependence.
The environment must provide a secure base to which our toddler explorers can return for guaranteed love and reassurance. The discovery of the world though play and the fine tuning of gross and fine motor skills is challenged by the continued development of language skills.
At Strawberry Childcare, the environment for our toddlers provides a diversity of activities to exercise ‘self help’ skills. The role of our teachers is key in understanding where each toddler is in their developmental journey.
Knowing a child from infancy is extremely beneficial. Providing toddlers with the right level of support so that they feel a sense of trust and safety enables toddlers to pursue the next new challenge; to play, explore and learn.
