Childcare in a foreign language:
My name is Szilvia Darók. In 2010 I completed a Diploma in Early Childhood Education and Care in Australia. On completion of this course I have an advanced understanding of all facets of childcare.
I was born in Hungary but I spent 14 years living abroad in Australia, in the UK and in Switzerland. I am fluent in English (written / verbal) and Hungarian, I have intermediate level French language skills.
I have learned how to foster physical, emotional, social, as well as emotional and psychological development in early childhood. I use my quality skills in promoting language and communication development to guarantee experiences that facilitate and enhance children’s development.
I have a solid career background in child care (child care centres & a nanny) and have been working in the industry for ten years. I have gained experience in Australia, the UK, Switzerland and Hungary.
Being passionate, enthusiastic and enjoying working with children, giving them a high standard of early learning education and watching them reach all of the important, yet imperative milestones is truly a career that I am very passionate about. I know that my work plays a crucial role in shaping the lives of future generations.
I am also creative and transfer my creativity by involving children in various activities that are fun and contribute to their learning.
I believe that children and families are central to everything I do. I believe in understanding and responding to the needs of our community. I believe in collaboration, support, and mutual respect.
I am aware that culture, diversity, community and public policy all affect child and family development. I support families, and recognize and respect parents as the most important caregivers for children.
I returned to Hungary in March 2018, after having my first baby at the end of October in Geneva. I started my business half a year later under the name LadyBug Care Budapest.
In LadyBug Care I provide childcare services from the age of 20 months to kindergarten age, and I also hold English language activities for children under the age of 4.
