School Holidays are always a lot of fun at Family Day Care!  These holidays Kylie Ford’s group of children had the opportunity to connect with the local community and visit the Equestrian Centre. The children learnt about the life of a horse, asking questions about what they ate, how they communicate, how fast they can run etc. The children also had a great time feeding and grooming the horses as they brushed them and fed them carrots and apples.

At Sonya Mears Family Day Care, the children were immersing themselves in the garden as they worked together to harvest the carrots they had grown. The children learnt about the life cycle of seeds and discussed their knowledge about bush tucker and the importance of recycling water. A great farm to plate experience developing understandings where food comes from as the children enjoyed munching their freshly picked carrots.

From the parents

We have used this service for both of our children - both with Helen. She is amazing! Our son loves going to Helen's, it's a second home for him. He has made great friends there too. We can't express enough how much we appreciate Helen and Coffs FDC for caring for our kids in a home environment. Highly recommend using this service!!read more

We had our son in care with Jacqui for 2.5 years (from 6 months-3years) and she treated him as her own the entire time. We shared all of his special milestones together, she taught him so many things-counting, shapes, colours, improving fine motor skills, speech and physical movement. He’s been on fun excursions and is socialable in most settings, he is such a kind hearted little boy. I honestly have Jacqui to thank for a lot of it. She communicated well with us the entire time and always had our sons best interest in mind and heart. We for sure will be sending our next Bub to Jac! She is exactly who you want to help raise your kids when you’re at work.read more
