Hello! My name is Elizabeth Thompson, Libby or Miss Libby, as some of the little nippers call me.
I am married with daughters, and for ten (10) years as Educator and carer at Neptune’s Nippers Family Day Care, providing education and care in a home-based setting, in Two Rocks, Yanchep and District Surrounds.
I have worked in the Early Childhood Education and Care industry for over twenty (20) years, starting with qualifications and positons held as a private nanny working internationally and interstate, long day care centres, co-ordinator, 2IC, room leader, before and after school services(OSCH) and vacation/holiday care leader, coach and scheduler.
I hold an Advanced Diploma in Children Services, Diploma in nanny/governess, Senior First Aid, WWC, National Police Certificate and ALL legal requirements enabling me to hold position of approved Educator of Neptune’s Nippers.
‘Bringing-it-home OR ‘back- to-basics’ is a term I used which helped me make the decision to exit the Long Day Care Centres. I wanted to provide Education and Care to families within a ‘home-setting’; offering flexibility of Care, smaller individualised attention, healthier group setting and provide and honour realistic options and choices for families in the community, all in a ‘learn-through-play’ setting. The best ever decision! Not only for me, but for my family and my children; as we all needed more flexibility in our busy lifestyle.
