Our Program

Twinkle Tots Cottage curriculum is a professionally designed program, which is child-centred and based on the principles outlined in the National Quality Standard (NQS) and the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF)- ‘Belonging, Being & Becoming’.

Our innovative programs include activities and experiences appropriate to the needs of each child to develop skills and knowledge in preparation for school that is challenging, stimulating and educationally sound. The educators observe each child, then implement their observations and reflections into the program, followed by an evaluation at the end of the week.

Twinkle Tots Cottage also offers optional computer studies.

Curriculum includes:

  • Language, literacy and communication
  • Physical development, health and wellbeing
  • Numeracy and problem solving
  • Creative arts
  • Science and technology
  • Social competency
  • Sustainability and caring for our planet
