About

My Family Day Care has been running since 2004 and during this time I have been through the FDCQA twice and successfully satisfied the requirements.

Children under my care will follow structured activities according to the age group to develop cognitive skills, fine and gross motor skills and social and language skills. I also take them through a School Readiness Program to support the transition from Family Day Care to Kindergarten. I have a Diploma in CHildren's Services and also a Masters in Psychology.

At the Funhouse FDC I focus on providing a caring and loving environment similar to what you'll find at home. I am an approved service for CCB and CCR.
My family day care is an approved childcare service registered with an accredited scheme. It is located on Ponytail Drive, Stanhope Gardens, a two minute walk from the bus stops, car park and shopping village located nearby. My family day care aims at being home away from home. I follow EYLF and free discovery approach.

I work under the umbrella organisation of Early Education Family Day care Scheme. Toys and activities are made available for the children to select according to individual interests and abilities. They learn at their own pace but peer interaction is encouraged. Time is set aside each day to do things together as a group such as reading stories, doing crafts, pre-academic skills such as colours, shapes, letters, numbers, and for exploring seasonal and other fun themes according to the interests of the children.

Your child will participate in developmentally-appropriate activities throughout the day, such as:

  • Story Time
  • Puzzles and Games
  • Arts and Crafts
  • Pre-Reading Activities
  • Computer time
  • Group times
  • Show and Tell and many more
  • Recycling
  • Sustainability
  • School readiness

Leaving your first child at daycare for the purpose of returning to work is one of the hardest things to do for a first time mum. But all that fear dissapeared when i saw how my daughter reacted to Poonam when they first met. I placed her in Poonams arms and she cuddled up close to her and lay her head on her chest, comfortable, safe and secure, you cant imagine the releif i felt at that moment. Poonam has been amazing, she is Aunty Poonam to us, an extension of our family. Poonams service has never been like i am sending her to a daycare. Its like im sending her to a family member who gives her so much love an nurturing with the added bonus of years of experience for aiding in the childs development. She has set up her home with an abundance of toys and learning tools to keep the kids engaged and learning, lots of reading and crafts, outdoor activities like water play and soccer and riding bikes, she has everything you can imagine. She even initiated my 3 year olds transition out of nappies, which has been going really well thanks to Poonams efforts, something i was dragging my feet on. When i had my second child I was so thankful when Poonam confirmed she had place for her.The sisters got to stay together and I was at ease knowing Poonam would loom after them both. Poonams husband and 2 sons have also been amazing, they are great with the girls aswell. If we were staying in Sydney we would have kept the girls with her till school age, unfortunately we are now moving on. I cannot recommend Poonam highly enough. The love that she has shown to my 2 daughters and her influence in helping them to grow and thrive is priceless. Thankyou Poonam, we will miss you dearly and never forget you.

"Leaving your kid in the day care is like leaving a piece of your heart behind" and am sure all working mums would agree with me. It all started when we desparately started hunting for a day care after the first one did not work so well forJulian. We visited so many places and the Fun House family day care was one of them. Inspite of our last minute notice, she accommodated our first visit. While every other carer that we met said what they do in the day care, what we should do, what the fee structure is like etc, Poonam started off with saying "We are more like a family here". That sounded impressive to both me and my husband. The whole place was filled with pics of all kids and their work which again shows how much they enjoy in the day care and how much their work is appreciated. Julian loves his aunty Poonam and has shown drastic improvement after started going to her place. She offers love and freedom to kids encouraging them to be what they want to be. All our friends who have watched Julian grow, always claim that he has learnt a lot only after going to Aunty Poonam. More often I used to think that she is like the second mum for every kid, who appreciates them and at the same time be strict with them to make them learn what a well behaved kid is like. One day when I went in the evening to collect Julian, there was a parent with her two sons who used to be in Poonam's day care before. They were just visiting as the kids love to meet aunty Poonam once a while at least. Well!!If you think "That's impressive".. it doesn't end there. They were just about to leave and when the mom made her move, the little boy kept telling her something and was not going with her..later we realized that he wanted to get a kiss from aunty Poonam before leaving. "How Sweet???". What best testimonial does Poonam need than hearing it from kids that she has taken care of. The best part is her whole family is very loving and caring towards all kids. If I say "Poonam's day care is like Julian’s second home" that would be an understatement. Believe it or not, after all that our son went through in the first day care, we are thankful everyday to have found Poonam. She is the BEST. Thank you Julian’s mom Annie
