Hi I’m Katie (Raynebowlee as some children call me)I’m a mum to a Beautiful young man of 17 years and a Raynebow Aunty too many. I’ve lived in Adelaide all my life and enjoying a career with children for almost 25years. I’m passionate about children’s holistic development and love nothing more than self expression through arts music yoga meditation and the outdoors/nature play. I live in the area of Goodwood and available day and night. I hold a Advanced Diploma in Children’s Services & the regulatory certifications and much more. I would love to meet new families and create an atmosphere that all can embrace and participate. Let’s grow together🌈
I’ve trained in Registered Behaviour Technician and have worked with many OT’s, built many relationships with children on the spectrum and behaviour issues.
I’ve worked with children from birth to 12 years of age, working in the industry for nearly 25 years, (Im so young at heart, I love me :) ) starting with my certificate 3 and working in before and after school care, running child minding services for various councils (way back in the 90's) to team leader, assistant director to Director. I have had the opportunity to mentor Master students in the field as well as TAFE students, I have also briefly taught adults cert 3 and Diploma, through an RTO. I have been fortunate enough to work with Brooke Davis inventor of "Wild Imagination" from the beginning which is a outdoor nature and loose parts play, discovery program that is run in the School Holidays. I really love to find out new trends in the sector and believe strenghthing our selves as a whole physical and spiritual individual ensures we make new discoveries that connects us to loving what we do each day and Im so happy that I can do this at this stage of my career life. I often upskill within the industry and in my personal life too, which intertwines quite a lot.. I have just recently participated in Rainbow Yoga teacher training, RBT training and Photography at the Adelaide School of Arts! Much of what I love and passionate about has to do with the whole community which in particular are the children and families. As you read this, and as i type this, I and you can notice that it involves the whole child as well as thier individual backgrounds and developmental stage, ensuring that the environment is inclusive for all as well as allow for changes etc Learning through play and every day skills, personalities, understanding that there is other people with fears, strengths, emotions and different backgrounds and knowing our self, is my pedagogy, philosophy and the way I interact with children and people in general. My dream is to build importance around Yoga, meditation expression through Arts and music in a group program. I have a name already "Raynebowlee's Sunny Fun messy days!" and share my learning through ones self and our interactions with others in the community. So you could say I love my life career, and so fortunate. Please dont hesitate to ask me anything, I will answer most honestly.
I have been helping children from reception to year 3 for years. At their homes or they come to my home.
