Welcome to Norma’s Family Day Care, and to the de Waard family.

My family consists of myself my husband John, who is an Ingredients Expeditor at Arnott’s Biscuits, our adult children, Ben aged 33 who lives at Wynnum West, with his wife Katherine, and our beautiful granddaughter Olivia aged 2. Jacky aged 30, who lives at Bridgeman Downs, with her husband Dwaine, and our 2 beautiful granddaughters Alexis aged 3 and Zoe aged 1. And our youngest Andrew aged 27 who lives at home. We also have a beautiful little dog called Lucky, who just loves being a playmate to the children.

I have chosen to be an Educator with Bramble Bay Family Day Care, as I have a genuine love of children, and enjoy helping them to grow and develop into responsible members of our society.

My aim is to provide:

  • a safe and clean environment
  • a warm, caring, nurturing and loving environment
  • a happy home with lots of laughter and smiles
  • learning experiences to encourage growth and development
  • a positive guidance in helping children to learn behavior that is socially acceptable
  • a healthy outlook on life to encourage good nutrition and eating habits
  • a home care program that provides activities and experiences that are inclusive of all cultural backgrounds

Philosophy and Goals – I aim to provide a safe and secure family environment where each child’s individual needs are recognized and respected. My philosophy regarding children and early childhood is based on a firm commitment towards providing an environment that is “a great place to be a child!” Childcare needs to be a “good place to be a child, a good place to learn, a place to be me (not just another child) and a place that supports the values and goals of each child’s family”. This service bases its efforts on creating that good place.
