At Toddlers Ink we believe that the rights of a child are paramount. Our Educators, staﬀ and families have devised a Philosophy that is inclusive of the values and beliefs of oﬀering an integrated service which include; care, education, health, safety, nutrition and wellbeing.We provide a warm, safe, caring and stimulating environment that meets the holistic needs of every child. Through observation and interactions we provide experiences that support every child’s development, unique interests and create opportunities for them to be conﬁdent and involved learners. Programs promote equality, inclusion and diversity whilst fostering all aspects of every child’s development; physically, intellectually, socially and emotionally.
We are committed to providing an environment for children that encourages a sense of identity, wellbeing, conﬁdence, connection and opportunities to contribute to the world around them. At Toddlers Ink we endeavour to meet the needs of children’s natural curiosity through providing opportunities for children to experiment, take simple risks, discover, solve problems and ﬁnd out about cause and eﬀect for themselves, and the world around them. Each child has opportunities with guidance to develop self-discipline, take responsibility and achieve independence.
