Rowena was a wonderful carer for my little girl. I was quite reluctant to leave her at the start as she'd never been away from me, but Rowena made it easy for both of us. She really cares about the kids and provides fun and educational activities for them. I'd have no hesitation in recommending her to others or using her services again in the future.
Miss Rowena is a gift to our family given at the best time possible. I came back to work earlier than expected and having Rowena around made the change more manageable for all of us. She's so thoughtful, remembering to send photos or short text messages so we don't worry as much. She helped us establish routines for our little boy - making everything just easier. With Rowena we know our son will always be lovingly taken care of, is safe and happy. We can't wait for the day that he will be in there full time.
I was very grateful to find Rowena more than two and a half years ago to look after my son. At the time he was 10 months old and I was going back to work. Rowena made the transition easy and I always felt secure that my son was being well cared for. In the last two and a half years, I now have two children who attend Rowena's Family Day Care and they both enjoy their time with Rowena and the other children. They learn social skills and they are both excelling in learning to identify colours, shapes and letters. I am amazed at what they are able to do and this is all thanks to Rowena. I would have no hesitation in recommending Rowena as I regularly do to both family and friends.
I wanted to take a moment to let you know what a great job you are doing as a family day carer and I truly appreciate it. Stanley didn't like to go to the centre at all but since he has been in the smaller group setting he has improved a lot. Stanley is learning social skills and people skills from you that I have had a tough time teaching at home. There is no other day care that we would rather take my son to. We have recommended you to our friends and will continue to do so.
I have trusted my child with Miss Rowena 3 days a week for the past 18 months, since my daughter was around 11 months old. Miss Rowena is a true gem when it comes to family day care mothers. Not only does my daughter learn social skills with the other children, Miss Rowena conducts art sessions, music time, reading, outdoor play, group games, songs and the list goes on. Miss Rowena has a previous history in primary education and my daughter learnt her colours, shapes, alphabet and first 20 numbers as a result of the time that Miss Rowena spent with her. My daughter goes to Miss Rowena's looking forward to each visit, and I go to work with peace of mind knowing that my daughter is happily growing and learning in a positive proactive, CLEAN childcare environment.
Rowena has looked after my daughter since she was 12 months old. I was very reluctant to leave her with someone I didn't know but am very pleased to say I could not be happier with Rowena. My daughter now goes two days per week and the care and attention Rowena gives is first rate. Her teaching background gave her a distinct advantage over other family daycare places I visited. The variation in activities she does with the children is really impressive and my daughter really enjoys going to "play" at Rowenas. Lisa Grosskopf
