Welcome to Suzanne’s Garden Family Day Care. I have newly opened my Family Day Care Service, after retiring from Early Childhood Teaching. I have over 20 years experience, whilst raising two daughters of my own. Previous to teaching, I travelled and worked in varied roles with young children, including babysitting, private family day care for several families, long and short day care in Centres. I was a live in Nanny for a family with four children in London.
My decision to develop my own Family Day Care Business was driven by a desire to run my own business and provide a service for families that catered for their individual needs.
I believe that children need to feel safe, secure and happy in the Family Day Care setting. I will help children feel welcome by being caring, considerate and by providing an environment in which the children enjoy playing and being with each other.
I believe that children need to be able to express themselves, which I find they can do through creative arts, outside play and interacting with other children and adults. I believe that children should be able to have a choice of what they would like to achieve throughout the day as well as some structured play. It should be the child’s choice to become involved in the structured play.
The environment will be safe for children and they will be encouraged to care for the environment as a part of the daily routine. At Suzanne’s Family Day Care Service I aim to develop secure and respectful relationships with all parties.
