About

Welcome to Waterford Family Day Care!

Curriculum 

Here at Waterford FDC we will be continuing our holistic nature play based early learning with our emphasis on inclusion, kindness and fostering friendships within our small group setting. While following your child’s unique routine and work with you on individual development transitions 

While following the Early Years Learning Framework incorporating Steiner and nature play philosophies. 

At the heart of Waterford FDC, is the guiding principle of a holistic and integrated educational approach to early childhood development. Steiner/Waldorf education focuses on developing the different dimensions of a child: emotional, mental, physical and spiritual. What makes this educational approach so special is that each child is honoured as a unique individual, and his or her development is founded on this understanding. 

About Erica educator, I have an advance Diploma in child care.  I have worked in the Early Childhood Sector for 26+ years, as Educator as well as Coordinator and Management in Family Day Care.

Both of my children have been in daycare with Erica for the past 9 months, and I can’t be happier with my decision to entrust her with their care while I am at work. I’m so grateful that they are in a happy healthy family style environment. Erica is highly experienced and nurtures and cares for the children as if they were her own. Erica provides so many stimulating educational activities for the children including outings. I couldn’t recommend Coombabah Family Daycare highly enough

My daughter started family day care when she was 10 months old. I found it very easy and was reassured my child would be safe and in an atmosphere where she not only had fun, but learnt and developed. Erica does plenty of learning based activities with the children. It's been lovely seeing my child learning new things, Erica also sends daily planners for parents to see what their child has done/learnt that day. She also offers a great set up for the kids and being a small family day care, the kids develop a wonderful bond together. You will know you child is getting the best start and care with Erica. I highly recommend her. Thank you for services!

As a parent I highly recommend Coombabah Family Day Care, I took my son out of child care centre as he wasn't enjoying the experience and found Coombabah Family Day Care on Gumtree. My son now 7 month really enjoys family day care and always has a nice big welcoming smile for the carer Erica and when I pick him up of a afternoon has a nice big smile for me as is never upset he enjoys every day. As a fulltime working mother knowing my baby is having such a wonderful eventful days and is happy is a very tick in my box. This family day care I highly recommend to any parent since my son has been there I have notice such a different he really enjoys his days. I'm so glad I found this family day care - thank you Erica keep up the excellent work :-)
