Family day care is a home-based education and care service offered within a family environment at an approved educator’s home.
In family day care children learn through play and exploration within a small group. Our educators can look after up to four children under school age and three school-aged children.
Each educator has a certificate in early childhood education and has completed an extensive screening and training process.
Educators provide experiences that are designed to meet children’s individual needs and interests. Indoor and outdoor play experiences are age appropriate with children self-selecting activities such as storytelling, craft, painting, play-dough, sand and water play, climbing, swings and bike riding.

Normal hours care
Our home-based educators offer care during day time hours to meet the needs of working families.
Before and after school care
Care is available for school aged children before and after school hours. Our educators work with families to understand their needs and can transport your child to school or pick them up when school finishes.
During school holidays our educators are available with a range of holiday activities. Talk with your educator about whether they have any planned holidays and if they are away, alternative arrangements can be made.
Retail, hospitality and care workers often work weekends and evenings and family day care is a great way to ensure your child has a consistent routine throughout your week. Casual weekend care can also be organised for one-off special occasions.
As is the case for weekend care family day care exists to meet the needs of families who do not work regular 9am to 5pm business hours.
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.
Find the right fit for your child
Our team of coordinators are here to help you find care as individual as your child. We do this by getting to know and understand you and your child, and matching you with an educator and home environment that will be the best fit.
After learning about your child and their care requirements, we will introduce you to an educator who will best meet those needs.
The final decision as to where your child will be placed is always up to you.
Just as every child is different, so too are their families. We welcome all cultures and denominations and appreciate everyone’s differences.
Educator meet and greet
After matching your child with a suitable educator, you may have the opportunity to visit the educator in their home, where the care will be provided.
Once you and your child have been matched with a home-based educator that you feel comfortable with, it is time to complete the enrolment process.
