About Family Day Care
Family Day Care provides quality care for children under 13 years of age in the homes of Family Day Care Educators. A Family Day Care service provides care through a network of approved Family Day Care Educators, who are organised and supported by a professional Coordination Team.
A Family Day Care Service can provide a flexible, safe, secure and stimulating home environment for children. Family Day Care Educators provide this service to a small group of children within their own home. A family day care educator must not educate and care for more than 7 children at a family day care residence or approved family day care venue at any one time. No more than 4 can be preschool age or under.
Family Day Care Educators are supported and monitored by a Coordination Unit and are visited on a regular basis by the Coordination Team to assist with providing quality care.
