Hi, i am Dianne and I have been involved in Home-based Care and Education for many years, I believe that children learn by doing, that they need opportunities to take calculated risks in order to realise their full potential. I support this play and exploration through developing strong, trusting relationships with the children and families I work with.
Remember the sense of achievement you felt when you climbed a tree for the first time? or the feeling of finally independently pushing yourself on a swing? With me Children know they are in an environment where they can test their own abilities and remain safe from danger. By actively moving, exploring and engaging in the material, natural and social world around them they are able to freely express their own thoughts and Ideas, and learn naturally through play and relationships.
I regularly attend local playgroups, music groups and community events which support the children's larger social environment and enable them to develop social competence. I enjoy being a part of a child's learning journey and I look forward to meeting you and your family very soon!
