Posted under Meet our Educators


Bio Helen
Helen is now open for providing a warm and loving home and playspace for children in her family day care Gold Coast north venue at Mt Tamborine.

Helen is tender hearted and this shows in her caring nature.  Helen has several years experience working with children in her role as a foster career and continues in this work she adores. She also has four beautiful rescue greyhounds, chickens, a male Turkey named Abraham, (he adopted Helen!!) two peafowls and a peacock, as well as another peacock who also has adopted her!

Indoor Playspace

Helen’s indoor area is bright and happy. There are plenty of open-ended toys to play with, and children are invited to use their imaginations to create wonderful worlds of fun.

Cooking and Eating is Fun too!

Helen also has a deep love of cooking, and can sometimes be found creating raw treats for some of the local cafes!

In her past, Helen has operated her own Cake Decorating business, and she is itching to share these creative skills with the children!

Inspiration Calling!

Helen’s love of farmyard animals AND cooking is the inspiration behind the name for Helen’s family day care, hence “Barnyard Cupcakes”!

Outdoor Space

Helen lives on a beautiful property set back from the road, and there is tons of space for the children to play.  There is a purpose built playground with swings, slides, and a beautiful shady tree!

Helen has many local birds who enjoy her garden, and this creates a peaceful and tranquil environment.

The children who attend “Barnyard Cupcakes” Family Day Care with Helen will have to opportunity to do real farm work on their days of attendance.
