Family Day Care

Family Day Care provides quality care for children from birth to 12 years of age in the homes of registered carers.

Family day care gives parents a choice of carers - they can choose the carer who will best meet the particular needs of the children and family.

In family day care, children are cared for in small groups, in a family like environment. Children in the group may be of different ages.

The carers are selected and monitored by the professional staff of the Family Day Care Coordination Unit. Carers must comply with standards set by government regulations and the policies of the Coordination Unit and Council. The Child Care Benefit (CCB) is available.  

Family Day Care offers full-time, part-time, occasional care, before and after school care, vacation care, evening, weekend and overnight care.

Family Day Care is more flexible with hours and better suited for shift and casual workers.
