Hi, my name is Denise, I have been married to my husband Mick for 43 years.
I was born and raised in the Burdekin and with the exception of eight years have lived here all my life.
I have a large extended family in the Burdekin, I am the mother of three children and grandmother of five grand children.
I began working in Family Day Care fourteen years ago as a support carer for my two daughters who were both working as Childcare Educators, they have now moved on to pursue other careers.
For the last twelve years I have been operating as a full time Family Day Care Educator.
I really enjoy working with children and their families.
People often say that when they come into my home, they feel really welcome and could quite easily stay the afternoon.
