Jellybeans Family Day Care respects the relationships children have with their family. The child’s family is the most important connection a child has and we aim to support them in their individual wishes for their child’s care and education. We encourage all famines to participate in the day care program on an on-going basis.
We understand that every child and family is unique and have differing requirements from other families within our service. We aim to cater for all individual differences I order for the child to grow, learn and develop into confident and individual beings. We acknowledge, encourage and respect the special relationships children develop with their educators and understand the significance and trust required from educators, children and families.
Jellybeans value the importance and relevance of ‘play’ in a child’s life and the family day care setting. We understand that play encourages children to participate, learn, practice and experiment.
We allow and encourage children the freedom to learn and develop confidence by promoting confidence in their own abilities and encouraging a healthy self esteem. We support them to develop at their own pace and empower their ability to make their own decisions.

We appreciate that is these experiences that mould our program and offer the children and families meaningful education.
