Family Day Care
Family Day Care provides a nurturing, affordable and quality child care in the home of an Educator.
Each Family Day Care offers educational programs to give children the opportunity to learn and develop, often in smaller groups which may suit some children. Wesley Mission Queensland works with over 50 Family Day Care Educators supplying their services across South-East Queensland.
Family Day Care offers:
- Greater flexibility for families. Some Educators provide weekend and evening care. Educators can care for children from birth to 12 years and siblings can be together
- Smaller group sizes. Operating on a ratio of one adult to four children (if under school age), or up to seven children including at least three school age children. The low ratio allows Educators to develop consistent relationships with you and your child while also enjoying a play-based curriculum that supports your child’s needs
- A comfortable and safe home-like environment. Providing diverse learning opportunities, enhancing the child’s social, emotional and cognitive development and respects the diversity of culture and belief systems.
All our Educators are registered with Wesley Mission Queensland and are required to follow education and care law and regulations, National Quality Standards and Wesley Mission Queensland policies and procedures. Educators are supported and monitored by Wesley Mission Queensland’s Family Day Care coordination team.
As a minimum, all Educators are qualified or qualifying in a Certificate III in Early Childhood, and several Educators have their Diploma in Children Services and / or Advanced Diploma in Children Services.
Fees and subsidies
Family Day Care Educators set their own fees which are approved by Wesley Mission Queensland. Their fee is based on their own budget and includes a parent and educator levy.
