My name is Katie and I am a diploma qualified Educator with many years of experience working in the child care industry. I am also a mum of three happy, healthy and adventurous children. My loving husband Ken is extremely supportive of my family day care venture, working a 7/7 roster and will be here at Forest Hill every second week (Wednesday – Tuesday).
Our 10acre property allows us to care for many pets including a dog, two cats, 11 chickens and 4 pekin ducks. My day care children are what inspire me to add to our little petting zoo with ponies and cows yet to come. Visiting our animals is a frequent occurrence here at Forest Hill Family Day Care and the children just love it!
Early childhood years are an important stage of life. I believe it is my role as an educator to lay the right foundations for learning in order to encourage children to reach their full potential.
While in my care, parents & carers can expect fun filled play-based learning in a safe environment for their little ones. As a parent, I understand the importance of promoting healthy and active children. I achieve this through regular excursions within our community, including frequent visits to our beautiful beaches and playgrounds, as well as lots of active outdoor play experiences at day care.
I aim to develop a healthy and trusting relationship with families through open communication and highly respect cultural diversity of which is reflected in my programs and daily routines.
