Welcome to Family Day Care

A Family Day Care Scheme 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 Coordination Units are accessed 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 Co-Ordination Unit within NSW, please call us on freecall: 1800 157 818, press ’2′ and ask to speak to a Project Worker.
