Hi, I am Adele and I am the educator at The Little Village Family Day Care. I am a qualified primary school teacher as well as having a Certificate III in Education Services. I share my house with my husband and our three children. I am committed to providing a high-quality education and care service that is of benefit to the children, their families and the community.
As a parent myself I understand the complexities of the work and family life balance and I want to be part of your family’s ‘village’ where I work with you in a partnership to create a nurturing, progressive environment that will give children a positive sense of well-being.
I want to work with the children’s natural desire to learn and prepare an environment that helps foster independence and sense of achievement, that follows their interests and allows them to feel safe and confident in themselves.
I have a special interest in Montessori and refer back to the Montessori principles when creating activities and experiences. A lot of these activities focus on how children can learn to care for themselves and their environment in useful and practical ways. Part of the Montessori philosophy is that educators are facilitators and observers of learning and the child has the ability to direct their own learning.
My operating hours are 8am – 5pm on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. My program and home environment are set up to cater for children who are 2 years or older but please feel free to contact me to discuss suitability.
