 Family Day Care - A nurturing and professional childcare option.

The Bland/Temora Family Day Care scheme is an accredited childcare service which places an emphasis on learning, development and fun, in a friendly and family orientated atmosphere.

Family Day Care believes children should grow up in a place where there is joy in the simple routines of an ordinary day; where being young means being able to learn through play at home and have fun.

Family Day Care is a place where children, families and Educators can build secure and respectful relationships. Educators are responsive to children’s strengths and needs in an inclusive warm and nurturing home environment.

Educators with Family Day Care offer children all this, as well as a place to learn, grow and achieve. Educators work hard to give children rich learning experiences that stimulate their thinking and foster all areas of development.

Children also benefit from the individual attention of one trusted Educator in a small group setting, with play-based learning experiences tailored to the child’s needs and interests.

Educators provide experiences such as reading, drawing, sensory play, singing and dancing, music, games, puzzles, dressing up or playing outdoors. Outings may include trips to the park, to the library or to other Educators’ homes. They may also attend Playgroup, where children interact in a larger group and experience learning activities planned by the specialist Family Day Care Support Officer.

Educators are supported by a Coordination Unit which provides them with playgroup sessions, administrative help, advice on child development and behaviour, professional development workshops and a helping hand in any situation.

Educators are early education and care professionals, who work from a safety inspected home and run their businesses on various days of the week to suit their own needs and those of the families using care, meaning greater flexibility for both Educators and families.
