Family Day Care Compliance and Safety

Council's Family Day Care program is an approved early education and care service, operating under the same national regulations and educational frameworks as other forms of approved childcare.  

Our program has been recognised for its outstanding service - it has been named one of only eight state finalists in the Australian Family Early Education & Care 'Early Childhood Service of the Year' Awards. Among our team of 25 Educators is a former Family Day Care Educator of the Year award winner - an outstanding accolade awarded by Family Day Care Australia's Excellence in Family Day Care Awards. 

Council employs a dedicated team of Compliance and Quality Specialists to oversee safety and quality at all of our Family Day Care sites. Our specialists are experts in the standards, regulations and legislation which govern the childcare industry. This ensures children receive the highest care and compliance standards. Our policies are constantly reviewed and enhanced in line with regulatory changes, and key amendments are shared with families. 

Our Family Day Care program is overseen by council’s Children’s Services unit. We work in partnership with Educators to uphold organisational values and meet the childcare industry’s national standards, regulations and legislation. 

All Educators hold formal early childhood qualifications, are fully insured, have a current first aid certificate and maintain a safe child care environment.

Council’s Children's Services team is available to discuss your childcare needs, provide information about Educators and help you find the right environment for your child.
