Family day care is blossoming this spring

A Family Day Care Service now has an easy digital enrolment process that connects you quickly to educators in your area within Casey.

Care is available for children up to 12 years of age in the private homes of registered Family Day Care Educators across the municipality.

Casey’s Family Day Care service has been rated as ‘Exceeding’ in its Quality Assessment Review under the National Quality Framework, which is the highest rating possible and distinguishes the service from many private providers.

Children enrolled in Family Day Care get access to Family Day Care Playgroups and a host of opportunities to get out into Casey’s beautiful parks and natural spaces, including Casey’s Children’s Week Spring into Play event coming up on 25 October.

City of Casey mayor Geoff Ablett said that Casey Family Day Care has been providing exceeding service to families in our municipality since 1981.

“We understand how busy people are and have introduced this new digital enrolment process to save parents valuable time when looking into joining the service,” Cr Ablett said.

“For those interested in finding out more about the Family Dare Care Service, our officers and educators will be hosting pop-up information sessions at the Livingston Community Centre next month.

“We will also be hosting the annual Family Day Care conference on 27 October, with families and early childhood educators encouraged to join in on this learning opportunity to understand how significant attachments impact children’s brain development.”
