Family Day Care offers babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers a loving, fun, safe and educational small group environment.
Council's 26 highly qualified and carefully selected Family Day Care Educators work from their own homes, providing an outstanding level of care and education to four children under school age.
Our Educators provide very warm and nurturing environments, maintain close connections and communication with families, and prepare their daily programs specifically for the needs and milestones of each child in care.
More than 200 children currently enjoy the benefits of Council Family Day Care.
Families tell us they value consistency - they arrive at care and are greeted by one Educator who knows their child well. Families also receive detailed information about their child's day - the activities they engaged in, their learning areas of focus and how their child is building their strengths. It's a level of personalised service unique to Family Day Care.
All Council Educators hold formal early childhood qualifications and are extremely passionate about childhood development. Family Day Care operates under the same national regulations and educational frameworks as other forms of approved childcare. The Child Care Subsidy applies to eligible families.
Our Family Day Care servichas been caring for and educating local children for more than 40 years.
Here is a sample of the feedback parents in our Family Day Care service share with us:

"Our Educator is brilliant - thorough, loving, educational, engaging and talented."
"Our Educator is amazing and always goes the extra mile, opening up our son's world in ways we couldn’t hope to achieve ourselves."
