Back to Who We are

Biography of Sara Poon

Hello All, I was born in Hong Kong and I grew up in Vancouver, Canada. I relocated back to Hong Kong in 2009. My upbringing has given me the great advantage of experiencing two very different cultures. Experiencing first hand two completely different education systems and parenting practices made me a strong believer that nurturing and guiding young children from an early age can help build tools which could benefit them throughout their journey of life.

I started my career working in the Tourism and Hospitality industry for 3 years with 2 years as a cabin crew member which brought me vast experience in customer service. In 2013, my wish for change of scenery led me to become an Administrator at an Early Childhood learning center and there I have discovered my passion in working with children. Witnessing the growth and development of each child fascinates me and I hope to be able to further my career and perhaps further my education within this field as well.

I enjoy cooking and singing during my time off. I like to experiment with different recipes and I love hosting dinner parties where everyone can relax and have great food. My husband and I are proud parents of our incredible baby daughter. Singing is also another way to release stress for me and luckily, I can incorporate this into an activity with our little one at home since she loves dancing while I sing different nursery rhymes or show tunes to her.

I joined Fairchild Junior Academy in December 2017 as the Administrative Coordinator prior to working at an International nursery and kindergarten as the Admissions Officer. I am thrilled to be a part of this inspired and passionate team and I look forward to welcoming you all to FJA.
