I have been an educator with Mackay family day care since May 2004. I have created a caring and loving environment for the children, where they feel respected and have access to age appropriate play based activities. The children are encouraged to learn at their own pace, with experiences the enable them to express their individuality. I encourage the children to be gentle, to share and to interact with others, and also to learn to listen and value each other’s ideas. My home is in south Mackay, however I provide care for children from other areas of Mackay and surrounding districts.
