DAILY EXPERIENCES & PROGRAM


My Family Daycare provides early education and care in a safe, nurturing and flexible home learning environment. I offer a play based learning program and environment in accordance with the Early Years Learning Framework or Framework for School Age Care. It encompasses a variety of stimulating, educational & fun experiences according to each child’s needs and interests. Children also have a mix of indoor & outdoor play and are given a lot of chance to connect with the nature.

My Family Daycare provides a very warm & a familiar environment for all my children. It’s extremely child focused and family focused. I provide creative & stimulating play areas for children as well as provide a welcoming atmosphere for families. I provide a setting that includes a variety of flora and fauna in the outdoors & involve children in their care, planting & caring for outdoor plants, observing them & watering them regularly. I use recycled & home-made equipment in my creative experiences. I engage my children in one to one & small group discussions about sustainable practices. Self-help skills, hygiene, respect for all & other positive practices are encouraged at all times.

OUT OF STANDARD HOURS CARE


Lot of families work around the clock, sometimes in shifts and have rotating rosters. With the increase in the way we are working outside normal office hours, more and more families require greater flexibility from their Childcare providers. We are making a genuine effort to provide support to such families who work in hospitality, emergency services, shift work and those who simply work longer hours.  We aim to provide support and flexible care to such families based on their individual work commitments and needs.

MEALS


I provide age appropriate meals for your child – mashed, puree etc. I provide a mixture of seasonal fresh fruit, mixed cheese, yoghurt, crackers, toasts, wholemeal biscuits during our Tea time and assorted sandwiches, cereals, veggie sticks, rice & curries, noodles & pasta for Lunch time.
Majority of meals are homemade using olive oil, wholemeal and organic products.
Nutritious meals, snacks and drinks are given to the children in order to charge them up with enough energy to power through the day!

FEES


My fee for standard hours is based on a daily rate for a 10 hour day from 7:30 am to 5:30 pm (Monday to Friday). My fee for Out of Normal/ Non-standard hours is based on an hourly fee. This includes Care provided on Weekdays before 7:30 am and after 5:30 pm, Weekend and Overnight Care.
