Family day care

Family day care is a service where a professional carer looks after your child in their home. It is small group care for a maximum of four children under school age plus three school age children.

The hours of care are flexible and carers may offer full-time, part-time or occasional care. Some carers offer overnight, weekend or vacation care.

Educator portal

The password-protected family day care educator website supports educators to run their service.
