Toddlers Room Program

  • Our Toddler’s Room program is based strongly on our children’s ideas and interests and is developed through working closely with each child and their family. We facilitate and encourage children to build on their knowledge and interests as they explore ideas and concepts, have experiences and gain understanding.

    Documenting Progress

    We document children’s experiences and learning through photos, artwork, observation, children’s documentation, recalled conversations and discussions had with them. With the children’s input these are then added to their portfolios and the Toddler’s Room journal. 

  • Learning Outcomes

    When we document our children’s learning from different activities or experiences we link it to Early Years Learning Framework, the Victorian Early Years Learning Framework and   five learning outcomes:

    Outcome 1  
    Identify: Children have a strong sense of identity

    Outcome 2    
    Community: Children are connected with and contribute to their world

    Outcome 3    
    Wellbeing: Children have a strong sense of wellbeing

    Outcome 4  
    Learning: Children are confident and involved learners

    Outcome 5 
    Communication: Children are effective communicators

    These outcomes are part of the Victorian and National learning frameworks; the documents are used by educators within the programs to extend and enrich children’s learning from birth to five years old and through to their school transition.

    The frameworks form the foundation for ensuring children in early childhood education and care settings experience quality teaching and learning.
