What is Family Day Care?

Family Day Care is a unique, home-based childcare service providing quality care for children in the homes of Family Day Care Educators, supported by a local specialist Family Day Care Service.

Family Day Care provides learning and development in a safe, secure and stimulating home environment for babies and children up to 13 years of age.

In Family Day Care, children learn through play and exploration while mixing with a small group. They participate in activities planned by the Educator to suit each child’s individual needs, such as story telling, singing, art and craft, playing games, visiting the park or the library.

Educators are able to provide: Full Time Care; Casual Care; Before and After School Care; Vacation Care and Overnight Care.

All families using Family Day Care are entitled to apply for Child Care Benefit (CCB) and Child Care Rebate (CCR) to assist with the cost of child care.  Families will need to contact Centrelink to see if they meet the eligibility requirements.

About Family Day Care Educators

Educators are required to obtain the Certificate III in Children’s Services and are chosen for their ability to provide a secure, loving and stimulating home environment.

Each Educator’s home is required to meet National  Government Standards and Workplace Health and Safety Regulations and Legislation.
Educators are registered with a Family Day Care Service which provides training and support to both the Educators and Families using the service.  

About the Family Day Care Service

The key role of the Family Day Care Service is to support and resource the highest standard of Family Day Care for children. They are there to discuss your childcare needs, to provide information about childcare and to assist you to find the right Educator and environment for your child. They are also there to monitor your child’s well being, learning and progress.

The Family Day Care Service works in partnership with Educators to uphold organisational values, meet required National Law and Regulations and National Quality Standards (NQS).

All Child Care Services are subject to “Assessment and Rating” in relation to the National Quality Standards. Services are rated against the 58 elements of the National Quality Standards and achieve either Working Towards, Meeting or an Exceeding Rating.

Educators are visited regularly by qualified Early Childhood Staff (Support Coordinators) who also run play sessions and offer toy library services to ensure that children have a variety of stimulating play experiences.

Many Family Day Care Services also host websites and offer newsletters for parent and educator Information.

If your Educator is sick or plans to take leave, the Family Day Care Service may be able to offer a relief care backup service arrangement with minimal disruption to your child.

Family Day Care Services receive funding support from the Australian Government to support the network of Educators providing quality childcare in different locations within the Family Day Care Service.
