Studying Certificate 111 Children's Services
I have a husband, Ryan, and 2 beautiful children, a daughter that is primary school age and a son who is almost kindergarten age. I am an educator who will work willingly with families to make our family home your child’s second home.
Coming from a very busy life of being a fulltime working mum with my 2 young children, I understand and value the importance of working Mum’s and Dad’s leaving their children in care. I will strive to make each and every day a fun and happy experience for your little ones. I will work closely with families to have an environment that is as close as possible to your child’s routine at home to keep consistency. Hygiene and healthy eating will also be of importance while your child is in my care.
I will offer lots of activities from arts and crafts, painting, cooking, gardening, water play, playdough fun, drawing and colouring in, and so much more. I will glue most of our days’ paintings, collages and so on into a scrap book along with group and individual observations that show photo evidence of your child’s learning/s. Parents will be able to view these scrap books at any time so you can see what your child has been up to during their busy day of play and learn.
I also offer morning and afternoon care for school aged children and do a school drop off and pick up. I take my daughter to school each morning and collect her each day, along with other school aged children should your family require this facility. I also offer the service to take your child to Kindergarten in Home Hill as well should you require this.
I want every family and child that steps foot into our home and care to feel safe, excited, happy and secure. I am very excited to offer families care for their children that would prefer that home-like environment for their loved ones!

Children are the future, so I believe that it is my responsibility not only as an educator, but also as a human being, to be a positive role model and have a positive impact on children?s lives. I aim to achieve this by providing the children that come to our home with a safe, fun, loving, predictable, equal and attentive environment where they feel secure and that they belong. This environment will nurture each child?s development of both a strong sense of identity and wellbeing. By enabling children opportunities through both planned and spontaneous activities they will be continually building on their knowledge and skills thus becoming confident and involved learners. Children learn the values and morals from those around them which is why I aim to consistently role model respect, compassion and empathy. I feel that it is extremely important that empathy and respect are role modelled to children and that the ?feeling of empathy and compassion? towards others be a feeling nurtured right through a child?s life. Children have a basic understanding of this as they are able to read body language from a very young age. It is up to us as adults to build on that understanding and feeling of empathy and compassion for others just like we build the understanding of respect for others. By allowing children to be children and engage in the many natural learning opportunities that arise spontaneously throughout their daily routine during inside and outside play they are also skill building. Engaging children in nature and the outdoors is very important not only for their mental development, but also for their physical development. Therefore, by providing an environment where children feel they belong and are able to relax and be children, I feel I can positively contribute and help guide them in their journey in becoming happy, kind, eager and confident little learners!
