What Is Family Day Care?
Family Day Care is a quality home based child care service that’s been actively helping Australian families for over 30 years. Imagine your child in a small group of no more than four or five pre-schoolers, playing, learning and having fun with a child educator they know and trust. This close relationship is valued by over 100,000 discerning families who enrol their children in family day care while they work, study or have some respite.
Today’s working environment is no longer the traditional 9 to 5 routine – so flexible childcare that meets the needs of modern families is a must.
Family day care caters for young babies through to pre-teens and can offer care during standard hours, part time/full time, before/after school, during school holidays and in some circumstances overnight and weekends.
