Family Day Care


What is a Family Day Care?

Family Day Care is a child care service providing care and education for children from birth up to 12 years of age. The care is provided in the home of a qualified and registered educator in the educator’s own home. Educators have been carefully selected and supervised by CatholicCare, and operate under the Education and Care Services National Regulations.

Our educators are committed people who provide high quality child care for your child. They can care for up to 4 children under school age.  This means the educator can give each child the personal care and attention which is vital to help young children develop new skills and interests. The children also form friendships with their play mates easily in the small group.

Benefits of family day care include:

  • Small group of children
  • Flexible hours and/or days
  • Individual attention
  • stimulating play-based learning
  • Close relationships with the educator who knows your child well

We have the following care options:

  • Long day care
  • Part-time care
  • Casual care
  • Emergency care
  • Weekend care
  • Overnight care
  • Before and after school care
  • Vacation care
  • Siblings cared for together

If your needs change, your family day care educator can usually assist you. The close relationship between educator and family ensures that the interests of your child and family are accommodated wherever possible.
