10 Planning for Integrated Infant and Toddler Programs Chelsea Hallion Educator Acacia Infant-Toddler Room Eleanor Scrafton Children's Program Leader Gowrie SA Child Centre, Underdale In January 2011, Gowrie SA integrated our infants with our toddler-aged children to create rooms which offered integrated programs for children from birth to three years. Since this change, there has been time for educators to reflect on what planning looks like for children within this age range. Rather than addressing planning for children within isolated developmental ranges, it has made us plan for a holistic child, one who is a competent and capable learner. We have come to see planning a program of learning for children as an ever-evolving journey, where we can never stand back from our programs and see them as a finished piece of work. We see key elements for planning in this way as: keeping in mind the image of a capable child; appreciating the environment as the child's third teacher; and working together in partnership with children, families and the broader staff team.
