Family Enrollments

Thank you for your interest in home based childcare with our Scheme
Children benefit in many ways from being cared for in a caring home environment. These include:

  • The home based setting provides a familiar, safe and secure learning environment.
  • Current research confirms the importance of strong relationships with significant adults to a child’s early learning; family day care’s small group environment facilitates strong bonds and promotes effective early learning and social development. 
  • Family day care can offer care during standard hours, evenings, before/after school, during school holidays and in some cases overnight and weekends.
  • Family day care can provide education and care for children from babies to school age;  offering the possibility for siblings to be cared for together, all in one location.
  • Family day care provides experiences which reflect the diversity of your community.
