About

I have been providing service to children at my family day care for over 18 years and enjoy my work tremendously. I offer a wide range of choices/learning through play for children from 10 months to 4/5 years old. I have a musical program for children of all ages every fortnight called Jump for Joy which entails all types of experiences for children from dancing, singing together, yoga, co-ordination skills to assertiveness and confidence building for children.

WHAT I BELIEVE
- The individuality of each child should be respected and nurtured
- Trust and respect fosters equitable relationships which are the foundation for positive child outcomes
- Environments for children, families and educators should be safe, healthy, caring, stimulating and inviting
- Children's independence and learning is fostered through play-based experience and individual choice
- Early childhood theories and practices should be used to continually challenge current practices
- Fun and educational experience encourage children to question and explore

TESTIMONIALS
"I cannot speak highly enough to describe Denise. The care and love she has for not only my child, but the other children in her care is beyond what you would expect. My son comes home with a massive smile on his face and as soon as I arrive he wants to be put down so he can play. He has been in Denise's care since he was 11 months old. There are girls in my mothers group who are envious that I have found her. I feel so lucky knowing that my son is so well taken care of."

Denise has been great caring for my son from 11 months to 2 years of age. She is great if you are wanting one on one care for your child in a small group environment.

Denise is such a lovely and wonderful child educator. My son is so happy with her, and I feel comfortable leaving him with Denise. Couldn't recommend highly enough
