Family Day Care is quality child care and education for children, it's provided in the homes of registered Family Day Care Educators. Our Family Day Care service is accredited on a national scale and can care for children from 6 weeks of age, through to 13 years.
Family Day Care is just like being at home. Children are given the chance to take part in a range of fascinating experiences with a balance of indoor and outdoor, quiet and active and planned and formless play.
Educators will be accountable for no more than seven children under the age of 13 years, at any one time. A limit of 4 also applies to the number of children under 5 years of age. This means the educator can give each child the individual care and attention which is very important to help young children develop new skills and well being.
Family Day Care Educators and their homes must convene all of the criteria as set out in the Education and Care Services nationwide system, Education and Care Services universal Law and Family Day Care Policies.
Educators may be available on a permanent or casual basis, and can work evenings, overnights and weekends in some cases. Family Day Care Educators can also provide before and after school care, along with school holiday care.
