About me

My day care service, Leda Family Day Care, has been operation since 1997. I started looking after children after my second child was born. It has been 16 years and I am still enjoying what I do.

I provide care for children in a safe, hygienic and loving environment. I work with parents to ensure children settle into care. I ensure care routines, which are an integral part of a child's day, are positive experiences which helps build a strong, trusting bond between me and your child, and amongst all of the children in my care.

I implement positive behaviours to help children build self-esteem, self-worth and friendships. I ensure children feel capable, competent and are acknowledged for their efforts and encouragement is freely given.

Activities are planned and are age appropriate, based on the children's interests, strengths and needs and also include spontaneous experiences. I involve children in the planning of activities and I monitor children's growth in all areas of development.

My operating hours are usually from 8am to 4pm Monday to Thursday and my hourly fee is $7.00. I currently have vacancies so please contact Bright Futures for more information.
