Family day care can offer care during standard hours, evenings, before/after school, during school holidays, overnight and weekends.
Family day care can provide education and care for children from babies to school age; offering the possibility for siblings to be cared for together, all in one location.
Family day care provides experiences which reflect the diversity of your community.
Family Day Care (FDC) is a flexible, regulated home-based children’s service for children from birth to 12 years of age. Small group care in a home environment provides an alternative to larger centre-
based care. The total number of children in care at any one time (including the educator’s own
children) must not exceed 7 children, with no more than 4 of these children being under school age.

effective early learning and social development.
