Family Day Care

Family Day Care offers a flexible alternative to Long Day Care, educating children in a small group within a home environment. 

Educators offer care during business hours and outside of business hours, early morning, evening, before/after school, during school and  public holidays and in some cases overnight and weekends.

Wangaratta Family Day Care is an approved Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) service and is accredited with the Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA) providing quality home based care in educators’ homes, throughout the Rural City or Wangaratta and Indigo Shire catering for children aged 6 weeks - 12 years.

All our Family Day Care educators have an Early Childhood Education and Care qualification, including a Working with Children’s Check (WWCC) and industry approved anaphylaxis, asthma and first aid qualifications.  Family Day Care offers an individualised care and educational program to meet the needs of each child in accordance with the Australian National Quality Framework and National Quality Standards. 

Family Day Care provides reasonable priced care and flexible hours.  Child care benefit is available to eligible families, plus the 50% child care rebate (As of 2nd July 2018 this has changed to the Childcare Subsidy, refer to the Australian Government Department of Human Services).
