Tewantin


Sticky Beaks – Lynne

I hold a Cert 3 in Early Childhood Education and Care. I have three grown-up children. I have worked for many years in early childhood including C&K Kindergarten, Pre-School as a teacher aide and also as a support teacher one on one for children with special needs and recently in long day care. I have always been interested in family day care and after spending time educating my son at home, I decided that was something I would like to do. While there are definitely benefits for regular long day care, I really love that I can give each child the care and attention they need. In family day care it is an extension of home and being part of a small group means it is more like family. Creating an environment that is nurturing, empowering and homely that children can feel safe and comfortable in, helps them to grow, become confident within themselves and with others. Being able to provide opportunities for each child’s individual needs, interest’s strengths and abilities allows them to learn at their own pace. Sticky Beaks is situated in Tewantin, we spend most of our time outside in the fresh air as I have a lovely outdoor area and room to run and play on the grass. We also have an indoor play room. We have two dogs one small dog called “Monster” and another medium dog called “Chilli”, they are both lovely natured dogs and are very much part of our family. At sticky Beaks we also have a blue tongue lizard called “Bluey” he has his own tank at a level where the children can enjoy looking at him, they all love “Bluey” especially when he sticks out his blue tongue. I absolutely love watching children discover and learn new things, seeing them grow and develop their own little personalities is just so rewarding. Spending time with each child, working with them to achieve their goals and providing a happy, fun, safe and nurturing environment is very important to me.
