Toddlers are acquiring knowledge and skills rapidly at this stage and need stimulating and interesting play spaces to enhance their growth. At Ripples, toddlers have access to a language rich environment and the space they need to explore and investigate. As individual personalities are developing it is important that educators develop each child’s own sense of agency and foster independence.
Educators will assist children to regulate emotions and enhance communication. This leads to increased self-esteem and positive relationships with family and friends.
Our toddlers are engaged in a variety of hands on activities throughout the day. This allows them to explore, use trial and error, succeed and develop confidence in an environment that is safe and secure, with the support of caring educators.
Higher staff ratios ensure that children are offered one to one interactions with their educators as well as collaborative small group times.
Individual education plans ensure that each child’s needs are met and regularly reviewed.
"My son Eli has been attending Ripples for the past year and I have watched him flourish into a happy, social and confident toddler. My once shy 2 year old son has a new lease on life and I'm grateful to the wonderful staff at Ripples for helping bring this out in him. It's a safe and loving envronment "
"We can highly recommend the services & professionalism at Ripples. The entire team strive daily to create special 'wow moments' for each & every child. This is very evident from the moment you step into each room. Our son, like all the children, are treated with care, attention & are supported through the brilliant learning curriculum that the teachers practice."

"My daughter has life threatening allergies. The staff at Ripples took the severity of her condition seriously and were extremely diligent to ensure that my daughter was never exposed to her allergens either via what she ate or what she touched. She was never excluded from activities or special events as they were organised with her allergies in mind. It was a refreshing experience to have a dedicated team provide the same level of care that we provide at home ."
