|About||Family Day Care based in Kuranda offering a nurturing, fun, natural, safe environment for children 6 months - 12 years, Mon- Fri.|
There was once a time when childhood meant playing barefoot outside, climbing trees, getting muddy or creating a painted master piece. Cassowary Kids aims to provide an environment where children can make their own special memories. I do this by providing educationally appropriate and stimulating programs that foster the development of the whole child, their physical, social, emotional, cognitive, creative and moral growth.
Indoor and outdoor experiences are provided in small and large group situations. These experiences cater for each child's individual development and reflect current interests of the group or an individual. At Cassowary Kids Family Day Care I recognise the value of play on development, as research has found that children attain higher levels of achievement through engaging in play. I pride myself on using an educational play based program that assists each child to build and develop at their own pace with guidance and support.
I encourage confidence, curiosity, imagination, independence, self esteem and respect for themselves and others. I offer the children an environment designed to help them develop their full potential both emotionally and physically; fostering and reinforcing self control and an understanding and appreciation of the rights and feelings of others. My program also reflects Australia's multi cultural society enhancing children's respect for differences and similarities.
At Cassowary Kids Family Day Care I endeavour to create a "family-like" atmosphere as I recognise the importance of creating a link between your home and mine, where families and I work in partnership to develop the child as a whole in a mutually supportive and caring environment.
