Hi I am Lynley and I have over 20 years’ experience in Home-based Education and care. I have a grown son of my own and absolutely put my heart in to all that I do. I enjoy sharing in play and learning with the children I work with. I have a cat and a dog, and I believe that experience with animals teaches children empathy and how to care for other living creatures.
I have had experience with caring for children who have autism, this included working with a specialist and attending the Mackenzie centre to support the children and their families.
I enjoy incorporating literacy and numeracy experiences naturally in play as children come to know the world around them though hands on experiences. I attend local parks, music groups and playgroups within the community. I have many friends who are also Home-based Educators which means the care children get the best of both worlds as they receive specialised care from myself in a warm, home environment as well as being a part of a larger social group where they have opportunities to develop social and communication skills.
