Hi, I’m Vania and I am in Dunsborough. I’m originally from Brazil and moved to Australia in 1996, this is when I became an educator for young children in long day care centres. My passion for working with children and the dream of offering the best nurturing care led me to opening my own family day care in 2010. Since then I have also become a mother to two beautiful and very loving daughters.
I believe that every child has the right to receive high quality care. I believe that when children build respectful relationships and secure attachments with family members and educators they reach their full potential to learn with confidence and grow naturally. I strive to offer an environment that invites all children to feel safe, nurtured and comfortable. I believe in learning through play and through my work I encourage supportive relationships, respect for diversity, connection with nature and the sense of community.
In my home there is a play room for the children to engage in activities and a separate room for those who require time to rest. The bathroom is easily accessible from all areas. The backyard is fenced, grassy, has a sandpit, play equipment, natural resources and plenty of shade. We also have some loved pets including a playful dog, guinea pigs and chickens.
In family day care interactions, learning, play and growth can happen simultaneously and naturally. I believe that family day care can be the perfect place for children to learn about themselves and the world around them. I would like to invite your child and your family to be part of it.
