Puddlebugs Family Daycare

Puddlebugs family daycare focuses on providing high-quality education and care to children with a strong focus on building relationships with both child and families. Family are the children's first and most important teacher, therefore children need a strong partnership to thrive in a care setting.

Kara follows a strengths based approach to children's learning, providing many opportunities for children to build on their autonomy and independence. A play-based learning program with sprinkles of intentional teaching throughout the day.
Throughout the day you will often find children foraging in the veggie garden, excavating in the mud pit, baking cakes in the sandpit and play kitchen, painting a picture (or themselves), building with blocks, reading books, conducting and enjoying puppet shows, messy sensory play and whatever their hearts desire that day. More often than not they will come home with filthy clothes but happy hearts.

In a small group setting, Kara loves that she has the opportunity to truly get to know the children, their routines, their home life, and their personalities.

Kara is a mother of three little ones herself she knows how hard it is to leave a little piece of your soul with someone else to care for them. Kara is truly honoured that she and her family get to share a part of your child's life with you.

Kara has over 10 years experience in early childhood care and education, working in many different rolls over these years.

Kara began studying a different degree at Macquarie university, stumbled into an early childhood class one day and found her passion for teaching young children, she quickly transferred into a Bachelor of Teaching course (Birth- 5) and enjoyed every moment (almost) of her studies up until she graduated with her degree. Kara prides herself on staying updated with relevant training courses, first aid, CPR, Asthma and Anaphylaxis certificates, child protection training and new and relevant research and education. Puddlebugs family daycare is located in North Richmond.
