Hi my name is Elham Bahman Kooishahi

Hi my name is Lee Boon


Hi my name is Lee Boon. A big HELLO and welcome to all the parents looking for care. At Lee’s Family Day Care, as per all of BBFDC’s policies and procedures, education is important but so is FUN.

We have a fantastic area to ride our bikes around at full speed. A garden to drive our ambulances and trucks through. Worms to breed and feed to the chickens. Cats to pat and guinea pigs to catch. Budgies to talk to and baby budgies to watch grow.

In summer time we have a full water tank to use for our water play and in the cooler months we walk to nearby parks and the library for community activities. We are experts in making play dough and messy play.

So if you are looking for the above please come and visit us we are always keen to meet new friends.

A lot of our families currently have their 2nd or 3rd child with us which is just fantastic.

Phone me on 0432 673 761 (If I don’t answer please leave a message as there is a good chance I’m busy with the kids) or email

Thank you for taking the time to read my blurb.

Hi my name is Chandima Goonewardena

Hi, my name is Chandima Goonewardena. I started as an educator in 2004 and have completed both the Certificate III & Diploma in Childrens Services. I am from Sri Lanka. I live with my husband Guy and my daughter Senaya (18 years) & son Sethum  (17 years). I opened my home as a Family Day Care home because I love nurturing children and seeing them grow, learning about themselves as well as interacting with other children. As an educator I want every child in my care to be happy, healthy and active.

Hi my name is Angela Martin

Hi my name is Annemarie Mullins

My name is Annemarie Mullins and I have been an educator with Bramble Bay Family Day Care since September 2014. I was previously an educator for Orange Family Day Care in NSW for 2 years, and have experience in Long Day Care. I was also on the committee for Lyrebird Pre School (NSW) for 4 years holding the position as Treasurer.

I have 3 children of my own.

I have completed my Certificate III in Children’s Services, and attend regular professional development training each year to ensure I am equipped to provide the best quality care for the children in my care.

I believe that my home will be one where your precious child will feel safe, loved and supported as they continue to grow and develop.

I have a range of resources to enable your child to grow both academically and socially. I plan learning experiences to cater for all the differing abilities and needs of each child implementing the Early Years Learning Framework. The program is flexible and you are welcome to provide input at any time. Enjoyment is the focal point of all learning experiences whilst still encouraging the development of each and every child. My holistic approach to children’s learning and development recognises the significance of creative and child-initiated play to the growth of children’s self-esteem and personal competence.

Hi my name is Anita O’Brien    

Hi and welcome to Little Butterflies Family Day Care!

My name is Anita O’Brien and I Graduated University in 2003 with a Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood). Since then, I’ve worked and volunteered in several countries including Australia, England, Uganda, Thailand and Cambodia in several roles including Lead Educator (Child Care), Prep teacher, ESL Teacher and Special Needs Teacher. Through my travels, I have demonstrated my ability to cater for children of various ages, abilities and cultural backgrounds. I have now settled back in Australia to raise my 10-month-old baby boy Finley. As a parent of a young child myself, I am passionate about creating a fun and stimulating environment where all children in my care feel safe, secure and part of a family. I strive to tap into children’s unique interests and abilities and foster their creativity, curiosity and develop a life-long love of learning.

Children in my care have access to a variety of indoor and outdoor activities with plenty of space to explore and interact on our large outdoor deck and backyard. I encourage children to become involved in the local community and interact with larger groups of children through excursions to local parks, the library, playgroups, visits to other educators etc. Other activities that form a regular part of the program include arts and crafts, sensory play and music and movement. With several years’ experience as a prep teacher, I have the knowledge and skills to prepare your little one for school.
