Hi, I’m Sam from Mumfi’s Munchkins Family Day Care in Doubleview. I have been operating my Family Day Care Service for 3 years and prior to that I have 12 years’ experience working with children. My decision to develop my own Family Day Care business was driven by my love of children and to be able to provide a service for families that catered for their individual needs, and a desire to run my own business.
I believe that children need to feel safe, secure and happy in the Family Day Care setting. I will make 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 other adults. I believe that the 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 Mumfi’s Munchkins Family Day Care Service we aim to develop secure and respectful relationships with all parties.
