Hi, I'm Kelly

I am married to Nick and have 3 beautiful children. I have been in the Child Care industry for the last 22 years, this includes Family Day Care and Long Day Care, as a Diploma Qualified Room Leader for 10 years and as a Director for 4 years.

I offer a professional service that is inviting to children and families, where the children feel safe, secure and comfortable. I achieve this by working in partnership with families to create an environment that fosters learning and development for all children in care. In my home setting, each child’s uniqueness and potential is enhanced by nurturing their everyday needs and providing positive guidance. I encourage parents and family members to participate in my service to broaden the children’s experiences. I love the personal connection I have to the families and children in my care.

I love Family Day Care, it’s great that we have the freedom of not being contained to 4 walls and can go out into the community. We meet up with other Family Day Care groups and Educators for activities. Belonging, Being & Becoming is our philosophy. We do a variety of activities to support this, which include:

  • Cooking
  • Art and craft
  • Gardening
  • Outdoor play (natural environment)
  • Story telling at local libraries
  • Attending playgroup
  • Small group play dates
  • Excursions with bestchance Family Day Care
