Tanya: I have over 25 years’ experience as an Educator in Family Day Care and centre based. My service focuses on warm, inclusive, nurturing, safe, and flexible environments. I see children as unique individuals and assist them to build on their self-identities with confidence and resilience. I value play-based learning, incorporating an Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) based learning program. I support this with free movement and a wide variety of resources for indoor and outdoor activities/experiences. My daily program includes group times which embraces story time, music, pre numeracy, prewriting and pre counting awareness to help support children prior to attending school.

Stella: "Let the children be free; encourage them; let them run outside when it is raining; let them remove their shoes when they find a puddle of water; and when the grass of the meadows is wet with dew, let them run on it and trample it with their bare feet; let them rest peacefully when a tree invites them to sleep beneath its shade; let them shout and laugh when the sun wakes them in the morning." ~ Maria Montessori
