Welcome, this week how to better support bi-lingual children in your service and meet Tabitha Penman from Bayside Butterflies Family Day & Overnight Care.
Supporting bi/multi-lingual children at your service
In multi-cultural Australia many children are brought up speaking two or more languages. In some cases, children may grow up speaking and hearing a language other than English until they enter an early childhood education and care service for the first time.

Supporting children from non-English speaking backgrounds in learning English while still giving them opportunities to expand their home language is an important responsibility for early childhood providers and helps to create a welcoming and familiar environment for children as they settle into their new care arrangement.

I am registered under C and R Cowling Scaife Family Daycare Providers, this is a great scheme that I have recently moved to with supportive coordinators and management, my service is Bayside Butterflies Family Day & Overnight Care.

As a family daycare service I don't have staff we are a standalone facility. I am open 24/7. I have four children during the daytime and am licensed to have up to seven, including school children, at other times.
