Family Day Care

Flexible education and care options for your children

At Catholic Care we provide flexible education and care options to meet the needs of you and your children.

Children aged 6 weeks to 13 years are nurtured in home-based environments and are always with the same Educator. Groups are small with a maximum of 4 children under school age, and 3 children over school age.

Our Educators have been carefully selected and supervised which is why we have been rated as ‘Exceeding the National Quality Standard’ by the Australian Children’s Education & Care Quality Authority (ACECQA).

Apply for care

From birth, children begin to develop relationships — first with their parents and families and then with their educators and other children. Family Day Care provides a safe and supportive environment for your children to develop the relationships that will help them grow and learn within their communities.

Fees and childcare subsidies

Using Family Day Care entitles eligible families to Government childcare subsidy fee assistance This means your family may be able to access financial assistance to reduce your out-of-pocket expenses, through Centrelink. The level of support your family can receive depends on a number of factors — combined income, the fees you are charged, and the number of hours you and your partner work, train or volunteer in a fortnight. To find out what support you are eligible for, you can contact us.
