Family Day Care

Providing care and furthering the education of your child

Family Day Care Services support and administer networks of Family Day Care Educators who provide flexible small group care and developmental activities in their own homes for other people’s children, aged between 0 and 13 years. Group size is for no more than 4 under school age and up to 7 including school-aged children.

The service provides flexible regulated hours of care for those living in Bellingen, Repton, Urunga, Dorrigo and surrounding areas. Flexible care can be provided as all day care, part time, casual, before and after school care and care during school holidays with priority for the children of working, training or studying families.

All Registered Family Day Care Educators are required to have completed or be enrolled in Certificate III in Childcare; therefore all children are supervised by a fully qualified educator. The Family Day Care Service will liaise with parents to assist them when selecting an appropriate educator for their child and support and advise educators in their role.

The Bellingen Family Day Care Scheme has been operating since 1988 in the Bellingen Shire and has catered for over 1000 children. The scheme is an approved education and care service for quality childcare under the Education and Care National Regulations 2011.
