We are a child-focused centre. We aim to provide a home-like environment so the children feel comfortable and relaxed and to make sure all parties feel safe, secure and relaxed.
Our centre has duel street across which enables the two parties to have different access points in and out of the centre to help alleviate and stress associated with seeing the other party.
Our centre provides each visiting group with their own private area as well as an inside and outside shared area so the children can enjoy activities such as kicking a ball, craft and water play (subject to weather).
Our caring staff take observation notes at every visit.
We provide a safe and caring environment which enables parents and their children to build their relationship one step at a time.
Feel free to contact us to come to meet us and have a look around our centre and see what we have to offer.
We look forward to meeting you,
Joanna and Melda

The safety and enjoyment of your child is my main concern. I am a mother of 6 and have lived on the Gold Coast for over 30 years and have been supervising for the past 9 years I have a Certificate in Child Protection, a Blue Card, and also a First-Aid certificate.
You can or call me on 0457 319 667.
I worked for the N.S.W. Department of Education as a Clerical Assistance and then a Senior Clerical Assistant for 27 years. During this time I worked with many specialized teachers such as Counsellors, Speech Therapists etc. I was also a foundation staff member of a private school.
In 2000 I decided to join Y.M.C.A. and become a Family Day Care Educator. With Y.M.C.A. you are only issued a license for 12 months, then you have to complete substantial criteria before you are issued another license.
Over the years I have had state ward children during school holidays. For short periods, I have also had emergency care for children.
About 10 years ago I was asked if I would do a supervised visit for a father and his 2 children. I enjoyed this so I have been doing supervised visits ever since. To me, my priority is the care of the child/children and to make sure they are safe and happy. I try to make both parents feel as comfortable as I can while they are here and know that their children are always safe.
I have a current Blue Card, First-Aid Certificate, Emergency Asthma and Anaphylaxis Management, Certificate III in Children’s Services, Child Protection Certificate, The Importance of Relationships, Building Relationships, Understanding Relationships, Repairing Relationships, Supporting Children’s Emotions, Parenting Made Easier, Emotional Fitness for Children, Developing Relationships, Reflective Practice, Importance of Building Relationships with Children in the Early Years, Responsive and Sensitive Care, Reflective Practice/Circle of Life, Principles of Reflective Practice, Emotional Intelligence.
