Relational Wealth | Speaking Life: Blog for Little Miracles Parents | Little Miracles. With Ben Bateman There is a freedom and a certain peace of mind that comes with wealth. When you are wealthy you have more than enough resource to meet all your needs. Wealth can even give you the opportunity to provide for others needs over and above your own A number of years ago I was in Bali on holidays and I was struck with the realisation that I was very wealthy compared to the average Indonesian that we were interacting with. When I got back to Australia I was back to the reality that the wages that I was on covered our bills and not much more.

Being wealthy is all about having extra resource. Our society has a great desire to have extra financial resource because at some time or another we have seen or experienced the freedom and stability that comes from that type of wealth. You can measure a persons relational wealth by the amount to which people will care about and or serve you without there being something in it for them.

We are a widespread community across six child care centre’s and we like to get together to collaborate on training days and learn from each other. We have professionals from various fields come in and train us, expanding our skills and abilities so we can continue to do what we love to do, to the highest standards.

Of course, we have loads of fun at these training days and usually finish off with a celebration dinner. We also love to encourage our staff in their interests by supporting a cause they are involved in, organising a community fundraising event or providing an opportunity for them to fully utilise their unique skills within the work place.

As Little Miracles we also have Fun Days planned throughout the year where all staff come together to enjoy one another’s company, build relationships, eat scrumptious food and of course, have FUN!

The Father and Daughter Relationship Thankful Hearts. Little Miracles Abroad | Little Miracles. The Bali Life Foundation, founded by Brad and Siska Little, provide a children’s home for 5 – 15 year olds who have been orphaned, abandoned or rejected.

They currently house 20 children from a variety of backgrounds and places in Indonesia, including four Indonesian staff. They are working towards developing a fully sustainable property and currently grow fruit and vegies and keep a chicken coup. Brad and Siska recognised the need for these children to develop skills for future employment. They also run training workshops where the children learn English, IT, agriculture, cooking, music, art, dance and sport.

Since 2010 Little Miracles have been sending teams over to Bali to teach English classes to the children, including the Teach Your Toddler to Read program and more advanced English classes.

Meet Rob & Susanna Bateman – Original Founders and visionaries Rob worked for Scholastic as the Director of Finance and IT until 2004, when he and Susanna were looking for a change in direction. Susanna had been looking after the family and heavily involved in community work with children, youth and women. They were looking for a business opportunity – one through which they could make a big difference in people’s lives. Both passionate about helping families and encouraging children, Rob and Susanna looked at many businesses before deciding that childcare was the way to go and Little Miracles was born!

Over the years, they had both observed and experienced that parenting can be such a challenge at times so a key focus at Little Miracles today is speaking life and encouragement to staff, children and parents. Check out our Speaking Life blog. Rob and Susanna have lived on the Central Coast since 1975, and have four children (all involved in the business) and ten gorgeous grandchildren.

Teach Your Toddler to Read Testimonials | Little Miracles. Home / All Posts / Teach Your Toddler to Read Testimonials Teach Your Toddler to Read Testimonials What our parents say about our Teach Your Toddler to Read program.

I am an avid reader and always have been and I knew that passing that on to my child was not only important, but would be a joy. Oliver has thrived under the TYTTR program and is so proud of himself when he recognises letters and short words throughout the pages. He now refers to his collection of books as “O.B’s Library” and I have just bought shelves to make it look like one, too. Reading is a great joy and one of life’s simple pleasures. I hope Oli continues to love stories, both reading and sharing them. TYTTR is a fantastic program that is fun and educational for children of all ages. We love singing the tyttr song as we brush teeth as it has a good rhythm for brushing! I love the fact that my children are actually enjoying learning letters and the alphabet. Gracie loves this program! Little Miracles - Loving Language | Little Miracles.
