Our Junior Toddlers room caters for 12 children aged from 15 months to 2 years (the children are considered 2 years old until they turn 3 years old so may stay in this room until then if needed). We have 3 fully qualified Early Childhood Educators providing quality education and care to the children in this group.
We run an educational program based on the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) throughout the Centre including our Junior Toddler room. This educational program is documented on Storypark (see more about this on our Curriculum page) and is available to all families at all times.

Families will need to provide nappies, wipes, several changes of clothes, dummy/pacifiers if required, a set of cot sheets (each child will receive a free sheet bag upon enrolment), any form of comforter and any nappy creams or teething gels. If your child requires medication whilst in care (including Panadol or Nurofen) it will need to have a label on it from the pharmacy with your child's full name and the dosage required.
