I’m Jane from Busselton and I have been working in Family Day Care since 1997.
I believe children should be able to enjoy the richness of play & learning outdoors, enjoy the warmth of the winter sun, feel the wet summer rain on the grass between their toes. That that have the right to breath fresh air while enjoying the shade of the peppi trees in my garden while connecting to nature & nurturing their souls. Be given time to explore, investigate, engage, grow, while respecting & tending the natural environment to become our future gardeners & care takers of our world in years to come.
Children also need to feel secure so therefore I will endeavour to provide a safe and loving home environment in which they will learn and grow. I will always adhere to Regulations and Policies in the best interest of the children.
Every child has the ‘Right to Play’ and with this in mind I will encourage a child to learn and care about themselves, others around them and their environment. I encourage children to rethink, reuse, recycle, repair & buy less, practice sustainability within my home and community environment. Conditions in the world as we depend on how these little people today will treat it in the future. They need to know that others will follow in the footsteps and therefore to look after and care for the people and thing around them. I believe that they learn through their own play experiences and I will help them increase their knowledge and practices in sustainability.
Play lets children grow in many ways from their own happiness through to enhancing their own individual development, it gives a positive self-image and builds self-esteem.
Children learn more complex tasks by building on simple play experiences. Play is for the child and provides opportunities for stimulation and relaxation. Children should be given the opportunity to use their imagination while playing. Play also gives the child a feeling of independence, provides experiences for problem solving, encourages and develops creativity and imagination and gives them an ability to express themselves. Therefore I will endeavour to provide a stimulating program of experiences and opportunities that will cater for all these elements while valuing their needs.
Quality care fosters well-being, health, growth and development of the child, Family Day Care Family Day is high quality, affordable childcare and is the right of every child and their family. Family Day Care is a very positive experience for both the child and family. the child gains the opportunity to develop relationships outside their family home while being in a warm, caring, safe and loving environment. Parents can feel happy and confident that their child is receiving the best care that I can provide through my service in a small group setting.
