I have worked in the Early Childhood Education & Care sector for approximately 15 years and more than 13 years with Sutherland Shire Council Family Day Care. I am passionate about providing children with high quality, home-based care. The children enjoy a very warm and nurturing environment which stimulates their interest in play and learning. Our small group enjoys beautiful days together playing and learning.
On a personal level, I am the proud mum of my children who have grown to become wonderful and caring young adults.
About my service
I foster children’s learning through play which comes directly from their interest, experience, needs and developmental abilities. All children have the right to feel safe and secure, to be in control of their environment and to develop a relationship with their educator which is based on trust and respect. I provide a gender inclusive environment that acknowledges each child’s cultural background. I also recognise the importance of families in children’s lives. Families bring a wide range of skills and knowledge to the care environment and are actively encouraged to collaborate with educators about curriculum decisions to ensure that all learning experiences are meaningful.
About my facilities
Maryam's Family Day Care provides a warm, safe and secure learning environment for all children.
Indoors, the children enjoy a very modern, bright and large indoor space which includes a reading corner, dedicated space for children's learning projects, large areas for dance and play, sleeping quarters - even ample space for our wonderful indoor 'camping' adventures this season.
We offer many modern resources for the children's learning, including a wide selection of educational games, puzzles and activities.
Outdoors, the level grassed yard features many resources to build the children's gross motor activities and physical development. It features large padded foam blocks for climbing, bikes and prams, a mini car rollercoaster, cubby house and large dedicated play kitchen. The outdoors also features a large shaded area.
Our Family Day Care is located in a quiet street in Sylvania, only a minute's drive from the Princes Highway and just several minutes drive from Port Hacking Road.
