My Family Day Care Service Program
My program is base on the Early Years Learning Framework of principles,practices and outcomes.With our objective of focusing on children's learning and wellbeing.
Our program for the children in care has its own phase for each age group.There are factors to consider when planning the programs for each age group. In our Family Day Care Service we are flexible and consider parents' input very important in the changes that may affect their child during the transition from Home care to a Family Day Care setting. We aim to make everyday a welcoming experience for both parents and children as we keep changing , developing and improving the structure of our planning, promoting and assessment of learning in our service.
