CatholicCare’s Family Day Care service offers childcare and education for children from
birth up to 12 years of age.

The care is provided in the home of a qualified and registered educator. Educators have been carefully selected, are supervised by CatholicCare, and operate under the Education and Care Services National Regulations.

Our educators are committed people who provide high quality childcare for your child. They can care for up to 4 children under school age. This means the educator can give each child the personal care and attention which is vital to help young children develop new skills and interests. The children form friendships with their play mates easily in the small group.

The benefits of family day care are many, and include small groups of children, flexible hours and days, individual attention, stimulating play-based learning and the ability to build close relationships with the educator who knows your child very well.

How we're nurturing the next generation ...

All our centres provide stimulating, supportive and safe environments, where play and discovery allow for children to learn, problem solve, think creatively and grow. Our parents feel happy and secure knowing their child is in a warm, friendly and welcoming environment that promotes a sense of family.


Family day care offers flexible arrangement options including full-time care, part-time care, casual care, emergency care, weekend care, overnight care, before and after school care and vacation care.


Siblings can be cared for together and the close relationship between educator and family ensures that the interests of your child and family are accommodated wherever possible.
