Welcome to “Home2Home” award winning Family Day Care! in Mindarie.
Current holder of the Australian Family Day Care Educator of the Year 2015 for the Northern suburbs , and previous winner of the WA Training Awards Trainee of the Year when I completed my Diploma in Children’s Services, reaching the last 4 in the state across all traineeships and apprenticeships.
Hi, my name is Louise, and our Service is called “Home2Home”. We strive to create an atmosphere of love, warmth and belonging so the children we care for come to regard it very much as their second home…hence the name!J
I have 10 years’ experience in Childcare and have been operating from home in excess of 5 years.
It’s very much a “Family” Day care as my husband …who the children very affectionately call “Cookie”, and I run it together. He does the school pick-ups and drop offs, prepares the healthy varied meals and is usually found in the centre of all the fun and laughter!
Our own children are 21 and 22 year olds who are out working full-time, but are very supportive that their home is shared by many other families!
Our normal operating hours are during the day Monday to Friday although we have a 24 hour license for families who may require care outside of core hours.
Enabling the children to make informed choices is the foundation of our service. This is reflected in every aspect of our day… from all of the daily activities, to planning the menus with the children…while guiding healthy and varied options; daily outings to parks…ensuring lots of outside play, exploration and discovery; alongside nature walks, Library Storytime, and excursions to the farm etc.
The Program evolves while working in partnership with parents, as the children’s interests are enhanced and extended, gaining knowledge, confidence and independence, learning through play. The sky is the limit to their learning!
