Family Day Care is nurturing, safe and fun. With only four children in care in the Educator's own home, it mirrors the warmth and security of a family environment.

About Shafa

I have over 20 years’ experience in early education and care. I spent five years working in Early Education Centres and 16 years as a Family Day Care Educator.

Family Day Care is my passion. I am fortunate to have developed strong connections with many local children and families over the years.

On a personal note, I am the proud mum of a school age daughter.

About my service

Shafa's Family Day Care caters for children from birth to age six years.

My service provides a daily program of learning through play. It reflects the children's interests, abilities, milestones and strengths.

I respect all families' beliefs and welcome their input into the children's program. I partner with parents to ensure the best outcome for their child.

My Family Day Care follows the Early Years Learning Framework. This is the only Australian government-approved framework for children under school age.

Shafa’s Family Day Care is a loving and happy place for children to learn and enjoy. It is important they feel this is their home away from home.

We provide experiences, interactions and activities that promote holistic learning.

About my facilities

My service is located in a quiet residential street close to Princes Highway, Sylvania. It is an easy drop off and pick up destination for families travelling through Sylvania for work.

Our indoor and outdoor spaces are exclusively for my Family Day Care service.

The indoor space is warm and nurturing. We offer play-based educational resources promoting the children's learning across all developmental areas.

Our modern outdoors features a large shaded area for messy play such as arts and crafts and sand pit play.

There is also a grassed level yard for bikes, trucks, balls, gardening and group games.


"My daughter started with Shafa at six months of 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 found in Shafa. Our daughter has thrived in her care. Shafa is kind, calm and caring. I’m so happy we found her."
