What is Family Day Care?
Armidale Family Day Care is a network of qualified and registered Educators who provide education and care for children within our community, in their own homes. Children enrolled in the service benefit from small group settings, individualised learning programme, strong relationships with their Educator, a balance of indoor and outdoor experiences and excursions around the community.
Family Day Care enrols children aged between 6 weeks and 12 years. We deliver Family Day Care for Children 0-6 and before and after school care & vacation care for school aged children.
Family Day Care Services offer very flexible hours, and provide children with the comfort of a nurturing, home environment.

“When choosing care for your child, family day care isn’t just the right choice – it’s the natural one”
– Family Day Care Australia
