Hi I’m Linda,
I’m originally from Fiji and have moved right from home to the Alice in 2011.

I am Melissa and have lived in Alice Springs since 2007 with my husband and 4 sons and been an Educator with ASFDC since 2015.
My day care environment consists of a large grassed yard with many places for children of all ages to explore, play and learn. Vegetable gardens, fruit trees, chickens and ducks are all part of our program and I encourage all the children to become involved – which means getting dirty and hands on with nature. Following the EYLF we learn through play which gives me the opportunity to build on learning experiences by following the children’s interests.
We love getting out and about in the community and go on excursions to various locations around town, including playgroup and play gym ran by ASFDC.
My favorite thing about FDC is the trust and relationships we build with the children and families.

If you trust play, you will not have to control your child’s development as much.
Play will raise the child in ways you can never imagine. Let the child be the scriptwriter, the director and the actor in his own play.
I am Julie and I started my childcare journey with ASFDC in 1983 to enable me to earn a small income while being home with my own children. Many moons and countless daycare children later (while there have been challenges like increased regulations and paperwork) helping out families and watching their children grow and blossom has been the ultimate reward.
About 20 years ago while on an international childcare conference in Sweden I came across this poem which is a reminder of why I continue to and love working with children.
A Hundred Years From Now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in or the kind of car I drove but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a CHILD.
