What is Family Day Care?

We offer quality childcare as part of our Family Day Care program

Care is provided in the home of approved educators supported by our Family Day Care team.

Our educators have no more than four children under school age and may have up to three primary school aged children in a group setting.

Our Family Day Care Program operates under the same national law as other forms of child care which means we must follow national regulations, quality and qualification standards, learning frameworks and an assessment and rating process.

The latest research shows a strong relationship with significant adults is important to a child's early learning and the small group environment of Family Day Care allows for those strong bonds and promotes effective learning and social development.
