— Maria Montessori -Italian physician, educator, and innovator.
Welcome to CalmPlay's Nanning and Child-minding service, I am Tessa and its so nice of you to check out my service that I now can offer to Families in the Adelaide Hills and local surrounds.
CalmPlay was created and foundered for families who need quality care from a Diploma Qualified Educator and mother of two school aged children.
I have the most understanding when it comes to juggling children and creating work/life balance, I want to to give you peace of mind for your own children in their home environment.
It is important your child feels the most comfortable, secure and safe in their mindful playground and relationships are built in a nurturing, respectful and caring way. Relationships with children and families are able to work together to construct foundations for building strong relationships.
We provide a fun and engaging environment and implement the CalmPlay Program and Philosophy based on an emerging Holistic approach, Creative expression and allowing children to learn by example, and have opportunities for imaginative play.
CalmPlay's Creative Play program offers a range of learning experiences that are developmentally appropriate, fun and engaging and foster the children's senses through their own time, wonder and curiosity.
These include a wide range of play based experiences for children’s learning and development rather than using structured ‘lessons’ or formal teaching experiences, these range in a variety of areas your child can build on social skills, develop positive relationships, extend on imagination and creativity and connect with a sense of wellbeing through mindfulness, nature play and gentle practices.
Our focus is to support you! Support your family's needs and your child's routine through out the time I am caring for your child/ren.
CalmPlay recognises the importance of communication and honesty through out this process and values its core philosophy of building the foundations for a strong relationship with your family and to work together in partnership to support your current circumstances and home life.
