Welcome to Family Day Care

A Family Day Care service is a network of experienced and registered educators who provide care for other people’s children in their own homes. Educators have been carefully selected and supervised, and operate under the Education and Care Services National Regulations.

Educators and Services are assessed and rated against the National Quality Standard to ensure quality and continuous improvement. Children aged between the age of 6 weeks and 12 years are nurtured in a small group setting and through the Educators individualised programming, are encouraged to further develop their skills and knowledge.

For further information on any Family Day Care service within NSW, please call us on freecall: 1800 157 818, press ‘2’ and ask to speak to a Project Officer.


Free Sustainability Webinars for NSW Family Day Care services

NSW Family Day Care Association is organising a series of free webinars on Sustainability, discussing and reflecting on National Quality Standard 3.3

Webinar content:
Sustainability has been defined as ‘development that meets the needs of the present, without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs’.
In the webinars, we will explore how your Family Day Care service can achieve this responsibility as reflected in the NQS Standard 3.3., by taking an ‘active role in caring for its environment’. Looking at the 4R’s of sustainability, we will discuss sustainable ideas for your service, including ways to save energy and water. We will also look at ways to role model sustainability to children, and help families understand the importance of these issues in their child’s future.
