Our family-owned early learning centre based in Penrose/Mt Wellington is a for children between 3 months and six years old. We provide a warm and welcoming environment not only for the children in our care but also for their parents and caregivers. Our classes are split into age groups to provide an age-appropriate environment for physical, social, and emotional development. Each group focuses on transition phases to help children cope with new routines, situations, environments, and people.
Benefits of Toddlers
Stimulating environment: We have created a stimulating environment to enable your 2-3 year old time to explore and learn. Our qualified team of educators will support your child’s learning through all curriculum areas whilst promoting self-help skills and confidence. This includes help with Toddlers toilet training, meal times and learning to share and social competence. Teachers will observe your child and ensure they provide opportunities for your child’s play to be extended and their interests developed through our curriculum planning.
Play time: We provide a quiet area for children who still require a daytime sleep. The use of our gym/music room gives us scope to allow children to be physically active on wet days or for smaller groups to use the space for their interests. Our extensive outdoor area provides a wide range of activities to keep even the busiest Toddlers interested.
Transition programme: Our Toddlers teachers have developed a transition programme which ensures children are given time to adjust to new routines and the classroom. We cater to children's individual needs and parents are welcome to discuss any aspect of transitions with our teachers. We provide an information booklet which outlines the procedure and timing of the transition programme.
"I can highly recommend this daycare to all. Our son attended from 11 month old until he was 2.5year old when we moved house. From the very first visit we felt our son was very well cared for and could not have asked for more! The ratios were exceptional, the outdoor space amazing and so well used, and the care second to none. I loved knowing and having a relationship with all the staff- (Manager and owner included). The centre has a family feel where everyone is invested and interested to learn the children and their family. They did such an amazing job of listening to our goals and more importantly responding to our child to ensure he was developing into a confident, kind and social child along with developing all the usual developmental mile stones. Staff always had the time to interact with parents and the use of Storypark was a highlight! We felt we had such a good understanding of what our child was up and who his friends were. Transitions between classes were very impressive and very responsive to the child. We were so happy and so was our son- he still talks about his friends, teachers and his "old daycare'. Leaving Child's Time was the toughest part of moving house!" - Ronan' s Mum
"Child’s time Penrose is such an amazing space for my little toddler. They have great indoor and outdoor spaces for the kids, with an indoor gym.
Their teachers are extraordinary-they are loving, caring and attentive. We needed a space very quickly and they went out of their way to help settle my toddler. He’s so happy there, never cries and always excited to see his teachers and friends.
Another thing that really stood out for me is how clean and neat they are, really important when working with these little ones." - Kiaan's mum
