​​

Canterbury Family Day Care is a unique and flexible Education and Care Service that provides quality education and care in a secure and stimulating home environment. 

Family daycare educators

Our trained and experienced early childhood educators are registered with our service. Our educators are able to provide education and care services for young children from six weeks to 12 years in a small group family setting.

Under the National Regulations educators can provide care for four children under school age and three school aged children up to 12 years.​

The cultural diversity of our educators is reflective of the cultural diversity of our community, and as with all our children's services, we practice an anti-bias approach. 

Coordination u​nit

Educators in our scheme are supported by the Canterbury Family Day Care Co-ordination Unit. The co-ordination unit staff team is made up of qualified early childhood professionals who provide support and mentoring to our educators.

Cost of care

Individual operators set their own fees based on the service they provide. You may be able to claim Child Care Benefit (CCB) and/or Child Care Rebate (CCR) to reduce your fees.

For information on Child Care Benefit and Child Care Rebate contact the Department of Human Services on 136 150.

Placement process

Staff will call you upon application to discuss your care requirements.

We will start looking at placing your child approximately four to six weeks before the date you require care. If your start date is flexible and you would prefer to start sooner to secure a place with your preferred Educator, you can discuss this.

Immunisation history statement

Changes to the NSW Health legislation means that your child cannot start care in any NSW Education and Care service without the required immunisation documentation.
