What is Family Day Care

Family Day Care is an approved education and care service that is regulated by State Government and funded by the Commonwealth Government. Family Day Care provides education and care to children from infancy through to 12 years, and inclusive of, school age children in a safe, secure and stimulating home environment.

Educators are self-employed individuals who contract with Family Day to provide quality child care in their own home for a maximum of 7 children. Educators receive ongoing support and access to training to enable them to provide a high quality early learning and child development environment in their home.

Educators and their adult family members are screened to ensure they are suitable candidates to provide a safe, nurturing and learning environment for children and families. The Family Day Care service requires the Educators to undertake a rigorous induction process including professional development sessions aimed at Building the Educator’s existing knowledge in areas related to providing quality child care in their own home.
Most families choose Family Day Care because they believe it is the best environment for their children. They place their children in a Family Day Care in the knowledge that educators are carefully selected. Parents also like the assurance that their Educator will be supported and monitored by trained professionals who will visit their children. Educators are not employed by the scheme, they are self-employed.

Educators can Educate and Care for up to 4 under school age children (including your own) at one time and up to 7 children in total.

Being an educator means being able to earn an income while being at home with their own children. Our Coordination Unit supports educators to ensure they are resourced, trained.
