Hi, I’m Mary and have been an Educator in Albany for 21years. In this time I have seen many changes in Family Day Care, some good and some challenging. I thoroughly enjoy my work with children and in my time as an Educator I have met many people and made many lasting friendships!
I believe that you never stop learning and that children are great teachers. It is my belief that Family Day Care should be a positive alternative to the family home, children need companionship with an adult for guidance and security, and to learn all facets of communication. By providing a wide range of experiences and activities I am able to awaken the natural curiosity and desires to learn within a child.
Children are accepted as individuals and I promote their right to develop their own personalities within the limits of socially accepted behaviour. All children develop at their own pace as long as they are given suitable challenges in a safe and secure environment.
