Hi, I'm Joanne

My name is Jo but most of the children call me JoJo. I have a background in Maternity Nursing and I am fully accredited with a Certificate III Children’s Services. My husband and I live in Nunawading with our son Ezra. Ezra loves the Family Day Care children and gets on well with them all. I provide full time care for up to 4 pre-school aged children and can also provide school holiday care for school aged children if required.

I love watching the children grow, not only in size, but in knowledge. As an Early Childhood Educator, I feel that it is very important that the children in my care consider our house a “second home”. My “motto” is Fun, Love and Laughter, as I think an important part of learning is making it fun. I am proud of how the children have blossomed in my care.

A typical day in my care may involve.

  • Playing with toys and the other children
  • Drawing and painting
  • Art and craft activities
  • Educational activities
  • Listening to and playing music
  • Singing songs
  • Dancing
  • Reading stories
  • Outside play in our well equipped play area
  • Going to playgroup

I have a website which tells you a lot more about me and my family at
