What makes family day care flexible?

    For many parents their work happens outside a normal 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday work week. Trades people, retail, hospitality, nurses and fly-in-fly-out workers represent only a handful of those who need day care that is s as flexible as their work. 

    Pay for what you need

    What families like about Family Day Care is our transparent fees. When you enrol your child you complete an ‘Hours of agreement’ form outlining the days and times your child will be attending family day care and the hourly rate the educator charges. You only pay for the hours you book. 

    Finding childcare as individual as your child

    At your first meeting with your local family day care coordinator discuss what your needs are for your child and their care. It’s important to find care as individual as your child and once our team understand your needs, we can find an educator who is a good fit for your family.

    Different types of care

    Our educators are independent operators who work with us to deliver quality care in an approved environment. Each educator can offer different hours of care and this includes:

    Normal hours of care

    Care during day time hours to meet the needs of working families.

    Before and after school care

    Care for school aged children before and after school hours, including transport to and from school. 

    Vacation care

    Care for pre-school and school-aged children during the school holiday. 

    Weekend care

    Weekends and evenings care can help with creating a consistent routine throughout your week. Casual weekend care can also be organised for one-off special occasions.

    Evening care

    Later hours during the week and on weekends.

    In home care

    Some of our services offer in home care which means one of our home-based educators comes to care for your child in their own home.
