I began working in the Early Education & Care sector after the birth of my daughter. Becoming a mother certainly ignited my interest and passion for the early childhood industry. My many years’ experience includes working with families and children from age birth to 12 years.

I am also a qualified second language teacher, having worked as a Mandarin tutor, within a Chinese program at a public school and also teaching Kindergarten to year six in a community school.  

I was born in China and have been living in Australia for just over 10 years. 

In starting my own Family Day Care business, I have created a warm and supportive home-based education and care environment which encourages children to learn, develop and reach their full potential. 

About my service

My Family Day Care service is based on the Early Years Learning Framework, the only approved government framework for children under school age.

Within my service the children are offered a wide range of play and educational experiences to promote their growth and learning including: 

  • group time
  • rhyme time
  • literacy resources, books and puzzles
  • maths resources 
  • creative arts, craft and painting
  • music & dance
  • creative and dramatic play
  • cooking
  • play dough
  • yoga for children
  • cognitive, gross and motor skills development
  • construction blocks
  • sand and water play

 My service offers:

  • tailored programs for every child based on the Early Years Learning Framework
  • a well qualified and experienced Educator
  • bilingual environment (English, Mandarin)
  • inclusions such as nappies, bed linens, blankets, towels etc
  • excursions to various community destinations including libraries and parks
  • extra curriculum excursions for before and after school care

Additionally, my service believes in working closely with families to ensure each child’s needs are being met and to support their precious family relationship.

We also ensure respect is given to family values, beliefs and backgrounds and we always welcome and encourage family input in programs and activities. 

About my facilities

My service is conveniently located in Caringbah, only a few minutes walk to Caringbah North Public School. 

We offer a generous sized indoor area for the children's enjoyment, along with a large undercover area for art and craft and sensory activities.

Our large outdoor area is filled with play and developmental resources including a sandpit, gardening, scooters, cars and balls, with ample spaces for imaginative play.
