What is family day care?

Family Day Care is care that is provided in an educators home in small group settings. The child’s social and emotional well-being is made a priority, with tailored educational opportunities offered by trained early childhood professionals.

Family Day Care can offer flexible options for families, with potential for outside of normal hours care such as sleepover or night care, weekend care and before and after school care.

Families that choose to enrol their children in a Family Day Care setting are typically eligible for the childcare subsidy.

Family day care operates under the same National Quality Framework (NQF) as other forms of child care; incorporating National Regulations, National Quality Standards educational frameworks and an assessment and ratings process.
