ABOUT ME …
Hello and Welcome to “ Boule de Gomme et Compagnie“! My name is Christine, I am French and I live in Bondi with my two daughters Julie & Eva.
I created Boule de Gomme et Cie Family Day Care, in 2010 and I worked with children aged between a few weeks and 8 years old. Now, Boule de Gomme et Cie is a Family Day Care in French to maintain and/or develop French speaking through a rich range of activities, combining Recreation and Education.

Family Day Care: A VISION FOR CHILDREN’S LEARNING
Children’s live is characterised by belonging, being and becoming.
From before birth, children are connected to family, culture and place. Their earliest development and learning takes place through these relationships, particularly within families, who are children’s first and most influential educators. As children participate in everyday life, they develop interests and construct their own identities and understandings of the world.
BELONGING, acknowledges children’s interdependence with others and the basis of relationship in defining identities. In early chilhood, and throughout life, relationships are crucial to a sense of belonging.
BEING, recognises the significance of the here and now in children’s lives. It is about the present and them knowing themselves, building and maintaining relationships with others, engaging with life’s joys and complexities and meeting challenges in everyday life.
BECOMING, children’s identities, knowledge, understandings, capacities, skills and relationships change during childhood. They are shaped by many different events and circumstances. Becoming reflects this process of rapid and significant change that occurs in the early years as young children learn and grow. It emphasises learning to participate fully and actively in society.
