Family Day Care educators recognised for National Family Day Care Week


While 2020 has thrown many challenges, Churches of Christ in Queensland Family Day Care educators are feeling the love this week in recognition of National Family Day Care Week.

May 4 to 11 is National Family Day Care Week, and although there has been forced postponement of activities due to the coronavirus pandemic, it is still an appropriate time to celebrate the contribution Family Day Care makes to our community.

Churches of Christ in Queensland Children, Youth and Families services marks this week to recognise educators providing quality care to more than 735 children and their families.

General Manager of Children, Youth and Families, Leanne Rutherford, said National Family Day Care Week is an opportunity to celebrate Family Day Care educators and congratulate the wonderful work they are doing caring for children in their homes.

“It’s an important week to celebrate and recognise the important role that our Family Day Care educators play in the development and wellbeing of children in Queensland,” Ms Rutherford said.

During the challenges of COVID-19, family day care educators have been working tirelessly to ensure the needs of families and children are being met.

Educators have continued not only to provide high quality education and care to children of essential workers but have ensured that all enrolled children have had the opportunity to continue to learn through play at home with their families during self-isolation.

“We would like to thank all of our educators for the time and effort that they put into their Family Day Care services.”

Churches of Christ in Queensland family day care services are located in the Fraser Coast and Wide Bay regions and Jamboree Heights in Brisbane, and provide options for parents looking for childcare within a family environment.
