Our family day care scheme is a quality home-based childcare service for parents who work, study or require respite care. The program offers a wide range of care options to meet individual needs. Babies, pre-school and primary school age children are cared for in small groups in the homes of carefully selected people, who enjoy the company of young children and demonstrate an interest in the care and development of children.
We employ qualified staff to co-ordinate the program and resource care providers.
