Tiny Gems Steiner Family Day Care
In my home I offer a beautiful Steiner-Inspired Environment and a Rhythm enriched with Nature, Nurture and a Loving Harmonious Connection to all friends and all our daily experiences together. Our rhythm follows a gentle unhurried flow and is very much in tune with celebrating the cycles of the Earth and its Seasons. Initial foundations are laid for teaching children through the engagement of their will, feelings, and their intellect. A secure environment promotes receptivity for learning. Our days flow blissfully along with a strong emphasis on Creative Play where we are completely absorbed in the world of Imagination, a wonderful platform for building language and cognitive skills.
EDUCATOR PROFILE : JUDY HARRIS
My name is Judy Harris. I feel extremely blessed to have been introduced to Rudolph Steiner Education 22 years ago, being part of a very small group of pioneering families at the Noosa PENGARI Steiner School. I went on to study my Steiner Certificate in Early Childhood Education, I have had 14 years practical experience, 4 years as Preschool Assistant,15 years as Playgroup Leader and 7 years welcoming families into my Steiner Family Day Care Home. I hold my Cert 111 & Diploma in Children’s Services. I have loved every single minute and every single gorgeous child I have taught, each bringing their own unique gifts to share.
Social Interaction with each other is in its infancy, so this is where we explore the virtues of Manners, Trust and Respect with our friends supported by loving consistency and repetition. I place a strong emphasis on the feeling of ‘Unity of a Family’ which ‘We Are’ for that time we are together during the day. In an atmosphere of light heartedness and song, strong, long term friendships are born. We enjoy learning together from many activities including cooking, drawing, painting, games, singing, stories, performing plays and making seasonal crafts.
When a child is encouraged to experience their own creative expression through imaginative play they feel a huge sense of fulfilment which is the foundation of an inner knowing. When sustained throughout early childhood it becomes the building blocks of a purposeful contribution to their adult work life in the world. As a teacher I strive to be a good role model worthy of imitation, enfolding the children in a mood of truth, goodness and beauty. I teach Parent Education at the Steiner School and FDC Parents are always encouraged to attend. I have a firm commitment to offering an understanding of the enormous benefits of Steiner Education to all Parents.
