Our Philosophy

We believe that in small groups, children will enjoy a natural approach to play and discovery, while forming genuine lasting bonds with their passionate and qualified early childhood educator. We recognise the importance of families in the lives of their children and promote the belief that families are children’s ‘first educators’.

In smaller group care, educators can support families in their individual wishes for their child’s care, development and learning and can tailor this to meet those specific needs. We encourage and invite all families to become involved in their child’s curriculum on a regular basis. Intereach Family Day Care focuses on each individual child’s development and individual needs, while providing high quality early learning in the natural environment of a family home.

We believe that play should be fun, hands-on, spontaneous, stimulating and challenging while providing opportunities for children to experiment, discover, explore, create, take risks, learn through achievements and mistakes, practice skills, make choices and decisions with the support of their peers and educators. We value the uniqueness of opportunities that Family Day Care provides to the community and the need to offer families quality and flexibility with the care and education we provide.
