Our Vision: Creating a Community of Families. “United We Grow”
Philosophy Statement: All Areas Family Day Care statement of philosophy will guide our interactions with children, Educators, staff, parents and the community.
- We believe in fostering the relationships children have with their family. We acknowledge that the family is the most important connection a child has and support them in their individual desires for their child’s care, development and learning. We encourage all families to become involved in their child’s program on a regular basis.
- We value the unique care opportunities that Family Day Care provides to the community and the need to offer families high quality and flexible care for their children.
- We understand the importance and value of play in a child’s development and acknowledge that play enables children to enjoy, participate, learn, practice, experiment and learn new skills.
- We believe in embracing the cultural diversity of the community we live in, where values, rights are respected and understanding and empathy are encouraged. We acknowledge that cultural diversity relates to gender, ethnicity, lifestyle, customs, beliefs, backgrounds and experiences.
- We believe that children need to be educated about the importance of the natural world and show them how to sustain natural resources, use products wisely and understand the impact we have on the world we live in. We will focus on making a difference wherever we can, from the Coordination Unit through to the Educators’ homes.
- We believe in the Early Years Learning Framework and uphold the ideas of Belonging, Being and Becoming as a way to create holistic approaches towards every child in care.

At Kindarama we pride ourselves on our Programs. One of our Programs is called - Wellbeing Curriculum focuses on Health, Physical Exercise, Hygiene and Safety. This curriculum runs similarly to our school readiness curriculum however it included our personalised Sports Skills Program that runs for 2 terms per year. The children participate in learning skills from 5 sports across the year and learn to utilise these skills in game situations. We focus on the main gross motor skills that children will use when joining school aged sports programs at school.
In the alternate terms, the children spend the allocated time focusing on healthy eating, the importance of hygiene and also discussing and learning about keeping safe in all situations.
These curriculum's will hopefully guide families during the year to also be working with their child at home on similar topics in the lead up to school. A child who has their family and teachers working collaboratively will benefit greatly and feel more supported in their development and skills. Contact us for more nformation.

Kids and Poisons
In New South Wales, every year thousands of children need medical care for poisoning from products commonly found in and around the home. Most accidental poisonings occur to children younger than five, with children aged one to three at greatest risk.
Why are children more likely to be poisoned?
Young children are exploring their world and will put anything in their mouths. They also like to imitate what others do, including taking medications.
What can be poisonous to your child?
Medicines, cleaning, laundry, gardening and car products, insecticides, perfumes, paint, plants, insects and many others.
How can you prevent a poisoning?
- Store medicines and chemicals out of sight and reach of children, at least 1.5 metres off the ground and in a locked child resistant container.
- Use medicines and chemicals safely. Follow given instructions and return them to safe storage immediately after use.
- Buy products in child resistant containers and use child resistant locks on cupboards or cabinets that store poisons. You can buy these at many hardware stores.
- Ensure all products are stored in original containers and are clearly labelled. Regularly dispose of unwanted and out of date medicines by taking them to your nearest pharmacy for safe disposal.
- Don't call medicines 'lollies'.
- Check that the plants in your garden are not poisonous
For more information on the prevention of poisoning, call Kids Health, The Children's Hospital at Westmead on (02) 9845 3585.
