My experience in the early education and care sector spans more than 20 years. I have spent five years working in Early Education Centres and 16 years as a Family Day Care Educator.
Family Day Care is my passion and I feel very privileged to have collaborated with so many families and cared for so many of their beautiful young children during my years of experience.
I have a long history as an Educator and my vast experience enables me to create a very engaging and holistic learning program for children at all ages and stages of their development.
On a personal note, I am the proud mum of a school age daughter.

About my service
Shafa's Family Day Care service caters for children from birth to six years of age.
The high quality, personalised service provides a daily program of learning through play. We respect all families' beliefs and welcome their input into the children's program. We work in partnership with parents to ensure the best outcome for their individual child.
We implement the Government-approved framework for children under school age, the Early Years Learning Framework.
Our daily program is based on the children's interests, abilities, milestones and strengths. The children's needs have and will always come first. I believe that all children are unique individuals who bring their own skills, abilities, experience and personality to the service.
My Family Day Care is a loving and happy place for children to be and enjoy. We want them to ensure they feel that this is their home away from home.
We provide experiences, interactions and activities that promote holistic learning such as local library visits, excursions to the local park and cultural celebrations.
About my facilities
My service is conveniently located in a quiet residential street just a minute's drive off the Princes Highway Sylvania. It is an easy drop off and pick up destination for families travelling through Sylvania for work.
Our dedicated Family Day Care space features indoor and outdoor areas for the children's learning and development.
The indoor space is designed to meet children's needs and interests in a warm and nurturing environment. It is complete with a range of play-based educational resources which promote children's development across all areas - language and literacy, numeracy, social and emotional skills, physical development and cognitive growth.
Our modern outdoors features a large shaded area for messy play (e.g. arts and crafts, sand pit play) and a grassed yard for time to enjoy bikes, trucks, balls, gardening and some of the many activities we enjoy each day.
"My daughter has been with Shafa’s Family Day Care since she was six months old. Since she started at a young age, I wanted her Educator to be an extension of our family and receive the same level of love and care that she does at home. That is exactly what we have found in Shafa and my daughter absolutely loves going there. She has thrived in Shafa’s care. Finding the right care can be hard for most parents, that’s why I’m so happy and feel incredibly lucky that we found Shafa. She is kind, calm and caring, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Shafa to anyone looking for quality care."
