Family Day Care Dayboro – Nature Tales with Emma

Posted under Meet our Educators


Bio Emma
Emma’s Nature Tales Family Day Care is now open in Dayboro.

Emma has 10yrs experience in Early Childhood Education and also holds a degree in Social services.  She is mum to one delightful daughter, Tiana, who is 11.

Emma has a keen interest in natural health, and healthy cooking.  Emma loves her nature work with young children, and has started a garden with the children, and will use the produce in cooking experiences with her family day care children.

Storyteller Emma

But the most special gift Miss Emma brings to the table, is her gift of storytelling!  Emma writes her own stories and songs, and creates a wonderful space where children’s imaginations can be expanded and enriched to support their imaginative play and creative inner lives. Emma also hosts workshops on storytelling for adults and early childhood teachers,  and shares her expertise with our other Rainbow Bridge educators. You can learn more about Emma and read her stories here. You can also follow her on Facebook to see all the adventures she shares.

Take a look at Emma’s Family Day Care Dayboro

Emma lives on a beautiful acreage-style property in the small town of Dayboro.  Her house sits high on the property, overlooking a gorgeous garden and seasonal creek that the children can explore.  There is a generous amount of room both indoors and out, for the children to run, play, climb and connect with nature especially. Children may even meet her resident native animal neighbours!

Emma’s family day care space is truly magnificent, and Emma looks forward to providing plenty of nature play opportunities here, and incorporating nature into her stories, crafting, painting and cooking activities.

Indoor Play Opportunities

Emma’s indoor space is focused on providing simple toys and tools that encourage imaginative play and creation. The space is mindful and not overwhelming, and children are invited to explore the home corner, free play areas, and block building at their own pace in a small group of four children.

    I am extremely delighted and impressed with Emma’s Nature Tales Day Care. My 3 year old son joined Emma the first day she opened and I couldn’t be more happier and do is he. Milton loves cooking, singing and drawing with Emma and to my surprise Milton has had at least 2 hours of sleep every single day (3 days/week) since he first attended Nature Tales. Thank You Emma and Tiana!!!
