Our two to three year olds

Two to three year olds learn through exploration, investigation and inquiry. These exciting and curious years bring increased independence and more questions.

Our passionate early childhood educators welcome each child with enthusiasm and respect. We know that this age group is curious, energetic and in a growth leap – that’s why we focus on learning about each child and develop a self-paced environment to help them flourish and succeed. We encourage comprehensive, two-way communication to keep you informed with how your child is progressing with and alongside us.

In our studios catering to two to three year old children, we support the following core concepts:

  • Rest and sleep times: As a service we begin to develop rest and sleep rituals for our group of two to three year olds. If your child does not require a sleep during their day, we offer alternative, quiet-time learning experiences.
  • Mealtimes: Children are viewed as confident and capable during mealtime and are aware of their own needs. We know that they’ll eat as much or as little as their body needs.
  • Independent toileting: To ensure toileting success, educators invite children to this experience with patience and trust. We create an unrushed and positive experience for your child while they gain toileting independence. Your child will be supported with the utmost respect and with special attention to their dignity during these moments.
  • Creative experiences: We invite children to explore a selection of materials and resources, colour palettes, utensils and surfaces each day – all readily available and within easy access to express their thinking and understanding of the world.
  • Exploratory times: Each day, our two-threes are offered large blocks of uninterrupted time for play and inquiry. Children at Harmony can plan for play across all our spaces using a wide variety of resources and materials with support from peers and educators.
