About Rebecca Wild

Hi, my name is Rebecca; however the children call me Miss Bec.  I am the owner and educator/teacher at Little Ones Early Learning.  I have been in the Family Day Care industry since 2006 and have always wanted to work with children and believe that working with their parents will provide them with the best possible start in life.  I love play-based hands-on learning and when it is done the right way, it helps children learn so much from the world around them.

I am also an avid believer in life-long learning and do my very best to practice this through ongoing education, research and study.  I currently hold a Diploma in Early Childhood Education and Care and am currently studying the Certificate in Modern Montessori 0-6.

My vision is to provide a high-quality, nurturing and safe environment for children filled with awe and wonder.  I believe that a healthy and balanced childhood includes risk and experimentation as well as mud, clay, sand, water and paint.

About the home

One of Maria Montessori’s principles for a prepared learning environment is beauty.  She states that Montessori environments should be beautiful.  It should invite the learner to come in and work. 

Our home is located in a quiet cul-de-sac in Griffin and includes:

  • a spacious learning environment purposefully designed for young children
  • an outdoor learning environment with natural and man-made resources and equipment to enhance each developmental phase
  • a wide range of Montessori and everyday learning resources, activities and experiences
  • a dedicated art studio
  • Our home is a safe environment for your child to learn and grow. It has undertaken and passed a scheme safety audit.

What to expect each day

Routine is important for children, it builds security – they know about their world and what happens next.  Our routine is flexible, allowing for children to make decisions on when they eat, play and learn.

Excursions

As the children and I undertake outings in the car, yearly checks are maintained on the vehicle to ensure it remains roadworthy.  Seat belts and car seats are also checked for appropriate installation ensuring children are in the appropriate restraints for their age and size.  Scheduled regular outings provide the children with opportunities to mix with other children and adults, which in turn helps with the development of their social skills. 

Some of our excursions may include:

  • strawberry farm
  • local parks
  • other Family Day Care homes – playgroup
  • Community Playgroup and local school
  • school events

Parent-Carer Relationship

I believe continuous, honest, open, two way communication is vital for your child’s growth and development.  Little Ones Early Learning is a high-quality education facility and we need to work in conjunction with each other to ensure the best possible learning outcomes for your child.
