Family Day Care 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 Educators set their own fees based on the service they provide. You may be able to claim  Child Care Subsidy to reduce your fees.

For information on Child Care Subsidy visit Department of Human Services or contact  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.

Community Playgroup

Canterbury FDC Play & Learn sessions are available to families every Wednesday during the school term. These are held at our Play & Learn Venue at 12 Campsie Street, Campsie. Our Sessions are an opportunity for families to come together in their community, make friends and establish supportive connections. We welcome families with children birth to 5 years, to come and enjoy a morning at our venue. Please call 9789 9489 to make a booking as places are limited.
