Montessori Family day care
and is conveniently Located in SOUTH hobart
The very first time you enter my home I am confident you will feel the warmth of our little community, peaceful atmosphere and the joy the children exhibit when they interact with their environment and each other. Blossom or 'At Ania's', as it's called by my families opened on a sunny Summer's day in January 2016. After relocating to Hobart all I wanted to do was to continue my passion for teaching according to the Montessori philosophy. Consequently I created my own Montessori environment. After much thinking and research my partner and I decided to utilise our home for this purpose. I was fortunate to connect with the other passionate Montessori teachers and parents in Hobart who have supported me on this journey. After six years Blossom Montessori has relocated to new venue in South Hobart which is solely used for Family Day Care. I work closely with the Uniting Family Day Care service team who have provided advice, support and a standards framework which has enabled me to further develop and evolve.
The Montessori approach to education provides an extraordinary opportunity for young people to develop to their full potential in a positive, supportive environment encouraging independence, enquiry and freedom to grow.
Montessori approach is to ‘follow the child’ in order to plan and implement a program which allows for each child to develop at his or her own pace, taking into account individual needs, capacity and interests.
Why family day care?
Family Day Care is approved child care that focuses on each individual child’s development, while providing high quality early learning in an educator’s own home.
In small groups, children will enjoy a family-like atmosphere forming genuine lasting bonds with their peers and a qualified educator. You will have peace of mind knowing your child is happy in a nurturing, natural and flexible home learning environment.
