My philosophy is to care for children in a relaxed, home-like environment, while giving them love, guidance, fun and a safe place to grow and learn.

As a mother of three, I know that children learn so much from one another. Family Day Care can provide an opportunity for your child to interact with children of different cultural backgrounds and ages. Small children learn watching older ones, while relations with babies and toddlers teach pre-schoolers gentleness and caring.

Giving your child a love and appreciation for our natural environment is important to me and I want to demonstrate to your child by my example a respectful and caring approach towards it. Children learn a lot being close to nature and I provide many different opportunities to encounter nature. This involves regular excursions out into the community and natural environments; this can help your child to be caring and more relaxed. It aids in the sense of being and belonging. It also helps to develop fine and gross motor skills. Children are encouraged to experiment with nature by touch, smell and of course getting dirty.
