Strong relationships with significant adults promote effective learning and social development in a child’s early years. Small groups of children in family day care allow for individualised care and attention in a natural and nurturing home environment. Your child's self-confidence and resilience will grow as they explore their creativity and express their individuality, learn and play with friends.
Uniting family day care services provide early childhood education and care in safe, familiar and secure home-based learning environments for children across Victoria.
All family day care educators are approved early childhood education and care professionals operating from within their own home or an approved venue. Each child’s individual learning is assessed on an ongoing basis.
At Uniting family day care, a typical day includes:
We understand the importance of healthy eating in children’s early years. Encouraging healthy eating habits from a young age is important for positive self-development.
We empower children to make healthy and nutritious choices through education and involvement in food preparation. Our educators also work closely with families to promote healthy eating and nutrition.
Our family day care services:
Working closely with parents and families, our educators provide a safe, nurturing, individualised care and learning environment for children. We welcome parent and family feedback and participation.
