About Sydney Family Day Care Scheme

At Sydney Family Day Care Scheme, we strive to provide excellent home-based education and care environments to nurture every child's growth and learning.

By working in partnership with educators and providing them with support and training, Sydney Family Day Care Scheme works to ensure that each child's needs and interests are valued and reflected in quality programming.

 

We and our educators honor parents' and families' role as children's first and primary educator. We always welcome inputs from families to help us create family day cares where children can feel safe and encouraged to explore their potentials.

 

Children in Family Day Care have the advantages of learning and developing socially, educationally and emotionally within the security of a small group. They will participate in activities that have been planned to suit each child's individual needs, such as story-telling, singing, playing games, outdoor play and executions.
