Family Day Care

Our network of more than 40 early childhood education and care professionals provide engaging and safe educational environments for all children in their care.

Our Family Day Care service provides an alternative childcare option for families in the Perth metropolitan area. Our local network of carefully screened and well-trained Family Day Care educators build on the interests and strengths of children through a dynamic play-based curriculum.

Our Family Day Care educators provide flexible care options to meet a family’s child care needs including part-time, full-time, before and after school, vacation, and in some instances: weekend overnight care.

We strive to support our Family Day Care educators in creating safe, educational, inclusive and nurturing learning environments. Our educators regularly participate in ongoing professional development to maintain the currency of their care skills and knowledge. Through frequent monitoring visits we encourage meaningful, open relationships be developed between our educators, families and our service through communication, support and flexibility. Our professional development support and guidance aims to bring our community and educators together to enhance children’s education and sense of belonging.
