Hello my name is Kylie,
I have been a Family Day Care Educator for more than 8 years. I have a Diploma in Children's Services.
I provide a safe, loving and nurturing environment for children to grow and learn. I support them to foster independence and become competent and confident learners in a place where they can feel comfortable, happy and at home. My service provides a holistic approach to children's learning, focusing on the individual needs of each child.
Play based learning and outside play is a priority. My program involves outdoor activities, gardening, cooking, music, dance and messy activities such as mud play, in a nature inspired environment. We have a vegetable patch, and two miniature goats that the children love to feed and interact with as well as a large fish aquarium.
Visits in the community include taking children to and from school and kindergarten, Visiting the local library,attending Playgroup, local parks and our favourite is having a picnic at the duck pond in Riddells Creek. We have special visits to the Zoo and Hanging Rock
My family and i have opened our home to many children and their families over the years, many of the original families still have children in my care.
It gives me great pleasure and pride watching the children grow into confident and independent young people.
