possum – Ages 0-2
Developing your child’s natural curiosity
The Joey & Possum Room is catered for children aged 6 weeks to 2 years. This room averages four infants and five toddlers a day.
Our small group allows educators to be responsive to the individual and varying needs of each child. Our Educators are highly focused on introducing children to viable self-help skills and nurturing the emotional development of each child within this group.
Our service offers a nutritiously appropriate menu with opportunities for children to try new, wholesome foods.
We offer breakfast, morning tea, afternoon tea and a late snack. Infants also have lunch provided for them and are supported as they learn to navigate new textures and flavours.
Our service offers a child-led program centred around each child’s ideas, interests, culture, strengths, knowledge and abilities.
Our Educator’s apply intentional teaching strategies to scaffold every child’s learning and development through holistic approaches and shared observation.
Children are encouraged to progress developmentally though hands on approaches to learning, whilst every child is included to participate in the Educational Program.
Parents are able to view their child’s progress in the program through our online app which is updated daily.
