Toddler Program

Our Abecedarian approach is progressive and personalised for toddlers to learn to communicate their thoughts, emotions and intentions.


Early Experiences (1-3 yrs)

We know your toddler is ready to socialize, make friends and be introduced to new challenges in a safe and nurturing environment. Our qualified childcare educators are trained and accredited by Affinity Education Group in the Lifelong Learning Curriculum. The Lifelong Learning Early Experiences Curriculum emphasizes the development of Toddlers’ language and social development using the Abecedarian approach within our intentional learning zones focused on play schemas that support toddlers' physical and intellectual development.

By choosing Milestones Early Learning, you know your child will be welcomed into a safe, stimulating and fun environment to enhance learning in their early years.


Where Toddlers Learn

Our Early experiences rooms are designed with the active Toddler in mind with spaces for toddlers to explore their environment and with lots of opportunity for hands on learning and playing, resting and eating with friends. Look beyond the toys and you’ll see the careful planning of our rooms that provide specific learning zones.


What Toddlers Learn

Our Toddler curriculum has focus on supporting language development and early social skills for toddlers. These foundational skills allow the active toddler to explore the expanding social world around them and build self-confidence and self-identity. Our Toddler program includes the Abecedarian language program and specially designed learning games to support both social & language development.


How Toddlers Learn

Toddlers learn best through play, supported by gentle and fun interactions with their educators and other children. Toddlers learn best through relationships. Our educators focus on building trusting relationships with each toddler. Our focus on a positive and warm relationship with our Toddlers supports them to fully enjoy the Early Experience program, build confidence and explore those early friendships with others.
