Redfern Cottage Early Learning Programs
Our Minto Early Learning Centre ensures children of all ages will be enriched by age-appropriate educational programs that foster their individual interests as well as learning and developmental needs. Through open communication we are able to seek input from each of our families to ensure that we are working towards the same goals for the children in our care. Our Early Learning Centre Minto caters for infants, toddlers and pre-schoolers, providing appropriate Early Learning programs for each individual age group. We recognise that children develop at their own pace and it is our role as early educators to tailor our educational programs accordingly to support each child in our care.
Tiny Wanderer Program For Ages 3 months to 2 years
At Redfern cottage we acknowledge how babies love to explore their environment and just how curious of learners they are at this stage. We understand and support this through meaningful, thoughtful experiences and learning environments set up each day by our dedicated, knowledgeable team of educators. Our environments are prepared with natural materials that challenge sensory input for our 0-2 years children, these include; soft wood, silk, muslin, calm low volume mood music and more.
All experiences set up within the room are age appropriate and ensure children safety is top priority. Our educators are refreshed regularly on babies health and safety including sleep safety practices. Our Early Learning Centre in Minto aims to create a calm, nurturing and safe environment for all of our Tiny Wanderers.
Little Explorer Program For Ages 2 to 3 years
The growth and development rate of a toddler is astronomical and incredibly rewarding. Our educators take on the task and responsibility of supporting our Little Exploders each day with pride. The experiences set up ensure to cater for a range of developmental needs from gross motor, fine motor, social skills, communication skills, self help skills and so much more.
The resources provided are age appropriate and cater for children at all different stages of their development. Our childcare Minto acknowledges the needs of a 24 month old child are very different to a 36 month old child and cater our environments accordingly. We understand at this age children are becoming more curious and able, therefore supervision and safety measures are taken very seriously and children are encouraged to be responsible for their safety and individual decisions.
The Preschooler Program For Ages 3 to 5 years
