Strengths and Positive Outcomes for Children and Parents who use the care I provide:

  • 31 years continuous experience as a Family Day Care Educator.
  • Happily married family person with a Christian commitment.
  • A safe environment within 1 acre in a rural setting.
  • Flexible care to meet the daily needs of the individual.Provide care for Children from babies to 13years, 5 days per week
  • Care for School Age Children before, and after School as well as vacation care
  • Ability to communicate effectively with a diverse age range.
  • Focus on process rather than outcome.
  • Focus on Child initiated play rather than Educator directed.
  • Attention given to Moral/Social/Emotional/Physical/Cognitive development of each Child individually and the group as a unit.
  • Sound understanding of Child Development.

Education and Strengths I weave into my care:

  • Ability to find a balance between Family Day Care Guidelines, Early Learning Years Framework and Life Experiences.
  • Diploma of Early Childhood and Education.
  • Advanced Diploma in Childcare and Education
  • Cert IV in Training and Assessment.
  • Ability to maintain a healthy balance between work, family and church commitments.
  • Ability to accept direction easily.

The above strengths mean that in the daily life of a Child in my care, they will experience their day in a relaxed, flexible and stable home. During this time the Child/ren also experience the wider community, which also enhances their development. The experience the Child gains is visible through “role playing”. The children express the insights gained, through dress ups/outdoor play/play dough etc. “making biscuits at the shop”, “Mum and Dad taking the Baby shopping”.

Open communication with the Parents allows me to express freely the joys and concerns the child has experienced throughout the day, as well as the joys and concerns I have experienced. This also works in the reverse for the Parents – they are free to raise issues with me

For me, my day is experienced as an extended Family support base for all Children and Parents.
