Early learning and Childcare
Our purpose is to ensure that the children in our care achieve the appropriate learning, development and wellbeing outcomes that they need to allow them to be well prepared and ready for school.
How do we ensure these outcomes are achieved?
- The children are our number one priority. We aim to focus on the needs, abilities and interests of each child. Therefore this will allow us to meet all individual learning outcomes and goals.
- Families are just as important. We aim to develop a relationship with our families. This will allow us to work together to achieve individual goals for your children.
- Working with the local community. We believe that the community has an impact on our service. We like to share a relationship with the community to work together to implement certain things into the service which may help us meet certain outcomes that we would like to exceed.
Early Years Learning Framework
At Toddlers Ink our key to programming and planning is based on “Belonging, Being and Becoming.” This is Australia’s first national Early Years Learning Framework for early childhood educators. The aim of this document is to extend and enrich children’s learning from birth to five years and through the transition to school.
The Framework conveys the highest expectations for all children’s learning from birth to five years and through the transitions to school. It communicates these expectations through the following five Learning Outcomes:
- Children have a strong sense of identity
- Children are connected with and contribute to their world
- Children have a strong sense of wellbeing
- Children are confident and involved learners
- Children are effective communicators

At Toddlers Ink we develop and design a high quality school readiness program which is focused on the National Quality Framework. This program is developed with a University Qualified Teacher. Our educators implement the program to ensure that your children receive Social, Emotional, Language, Literacy and Numeracy skills to allow them to begin “Big School” with confidence.
To achieve these goals we strive to push the children to their personal abilities through play-based/ interest-based learning. This will allow your child to explore, discover, negotiate, take risks and increase problem solving skills. Using this approach will engage the children to take part in these experiences.
