Family Day Care

Family Day Care (FDC) is quality, affordable child care and education for small groups of 0-13 year olds, provided in the home of a qualified childhood educator.

With the need to work full time and non-standard hours on the rise, parents wanting their children to grow up in a home environment are looking at FDC as an alternative to centre-based and relative child care.

Offering flexible care hours and multicultural educators, FDC is ideal for busy parents like shift workers, on-call employees, single parents and parents with demanding jobs, and parents from diverse cultural backgrounds.

Becoming a FDC educator

Information about becoming an FDC educator is available in the Family Day Care Educator Brochure (PDF, 2.65 MB) and application form.
