For over 40 years Fairfield City Council has proudly provided a unique form of home-based child care known as 'Family Day Care', which provides a familiar, safe and secure learning environment. Each carer has a maximum of four children (0-5 yrs) in care. Current research shows us the importance of strong relationships with adults to a child’s early learning. Family Day Care’s small group environment helps create strong bonds and effective early learning and social development.
Family Day Care can offer care during working hours, evenings, before/after school, during school holidays and overnight and weekends. It provides education and care for children from babies to school age; allowing siblings to be cared for together by the same Educator.
We charge a $30.00 enrolment fee per child, you will be given a hat for your child at this time. Enrolments are carried out at the coordination unit at Greenfield Park.
All our Educators work under a deregulated fee system where, as service operators, they se their own fees according to the services provided. You may be able to claim Child Care Benefit (CCB) and/or Child Care Rebate (CCR) to reduce your daily fee. Please see the following link for further information about CCB and CCR www.humanservices.gov.au/customer/services/centrelink/child-care-rebate
Family day care educators are approved early childhood education and care professionals who follow the principles and practices of the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) The educator providers are assisted and supported by Fairfield Council's Co-ordination Unit team.
