Reasons to Celebrate for Monaro Family Day Care

When Yvonne Ingram hosted a party on 18 December there were plenty of reasons for celebration. Yvonne is one of our Monaro Family Day Care Educators, which means she provides child care in her own home. The children in her care and their families were at her party not only to celebrate Christmas and another great year of care.

Recently the service was assessed for rating by representatives of the Early Childhood Education and Care Directorate. Yvonne was one of the active participants in the process with two authorised officers visiting and observing her practices.

We are delighted to say that Monaro Family Day Care meets National Quality Standards in all seven areas of the National Quality Framework.

Based in Bombala, Yvonne has been provided child-care for 16 years and in 2013 she was awarded "Australian Family Day Care Educator for the Goulburn, Southern Tablelands Region" having been selected from many Educators throughout the region. The recent assessment reconfirmed the quality of her care, as well as the care provided by other Monaro Family Day Care Educators in our district.

We congratulate Yvonne on her achievements and on her commitment to local families.

Presently there are limited vacancies in family day care in Bombala. For information please contact the Monaro Family Day Care office direct on 6452 1740.
