What is Family Day Care?
bestchance Family Day Care (FDC) is a unique childcare service operating from homes within the following municipalities: Baw Baw, Boroondara, Cardinia, Frankston, Glen Eira, Knox, Manningham, Maroondah, Monash, Mornington Peninisula, Whitehorse and Yarra Ranges. Qualified child care Educators provide the highest quality service to children and their families, with small groups ensuring each child is given the attention and care required to ensure happy and blossoming young people.
Each Family Day Care centre focuses on a balance of indoor based educational activities, as well as monitored outside play, encouraging engagement in nature and the outdoors. This is complimented by the availability of weekly playgroups, with Educators and children coming together to play and learn, as well as the monthly Bush Playgroup.
Hours of operations and days available are highly flexible, ensuring parents are able to find a service which suits their needs, without having to compromise on the quality of care their child is receiving.
Types of child care provided include:
- Full time/part time hours
- Before and After School care
- Vacation care in School Holidays
- Casual/Emergency care
- Weekend Care
- Overnight Care
- Occasional Care
Family Day Care provides learning and development opportunities for infants and children up to the age of 12 years old in a safe, secure and stimulating home environment. The home based childcare is delivered in small groups of up to 7 children, 4 of whom must be under school age. Our child care centres and the Family Day Care program are registered with the Department of Education and parents are eligible to the same Child Care subsidy.
