What customers are saying…

“Many thanks to Rachel for creating Friendship Tree Daycare and providing such conscientious care to my four-year old son. Rachel is genuine in her efforts to find out what it is that a child needs and to support them in their own trajectory of development. I am very happy to recommend Rachel’s services to any parent or carer. The space, the relationships, the play and the extra efforts have made Friendship Tree a very positive experience for our family.” – Haidee Browning

Welcome

At Friendship Tree Day Care you can expect a safe, comfortable and fun home environment.  Your child will be supported as they explore and learn.

 

My style is influenced by Reggio Emilia style education.  I am also passionate about the importance of empathy in care and education, and you will notice a Waldorf Steiner influence in the resources and environment offered.

What this means for you and your children is:

  • children lead their learning
  • I support play based learning throughout your child’s day because children have the greatest sense of wellbeing and are most motivated while playing.
  • children are supported in their chosen path of discovery
  • children learn from nature
  • the care environment is uncluttered, looks appealing, and features natural materials
  • I provide a loving, nurturing environment that is inclusive and respectful
  • my focus is on meeting needs (yours, mine, and your child’s), be that for fun, food, rest, self expression etc.
  • I am not judgmental.  I strive to honor our unique strengths and experiences, and I am motivated to collaborate with you for the best outcomes for your child.
  • I provide ‘passive’ toys that support brain development toward creativity, resourcefulness, independence, and sticking power

I have Cert III in Early Childhood Care and Education.  I first opened my Family Day Care business in Feb 2016.  I had previously established and run a weekly playgroup and family day.  I have current First Aid with anaphylaxis and asthma training.  I have studied NVC (‘the language of connection’). I have my Working With Children clearance.  I attend additional training throughout the year.  Plus, my own four children trained me VERY well!  I am very excited to be offering care on Tassie’s beautiful West Coast.
