Why choose Family Day Care?

Family Day Care offers small group learning environments for children, whilst being flexible and affordable to meet the needs of the entire family.

We accommodate flexible care hours  (full time, part time, casual, evenings, overnight, weekends, before and after school care, vacation care), cater for a variety of needs and interests and consider each child as an invidual.

Our Educators are early childhood professionals who offer nurturing, secure, familiar and consistent care and education for children.

Family Day Care offers low child to educator ratios (1:4,1:7), which allows educators and children to develop very strong bonds.

Children engage in rich learning environments as they learn and develop through play-based programs and experiences.

Family Day Care is accredited under the National Quality Framework (Legislation and Standards) for Early Childhood Services.

Child Care Subsidy (CCS) is available for eligible families.
