National Family Day Care Week is your opportunity to shine!

Commencing on May 1 and concluding on May 7, National Family Day Care Week is about recognising and promoting the important role family day care educators and services play in the development and wellbeing of more than 203,790 children across Australia.

Now in its third year, National Family Day Care Week is integral in raising the image and profile of family day care. The annual celebration generates nationwide media highlighting  the many unique benefits of family day care and positioning our sector as a high quality, flexible early childhood education and care option for Australian families.

Every Child is a Star

The theme “Every Child is a Star” remains central to National Family Day Care Week.

“Every Child is a Star” is more than just a slogan. It reflects our commitment to fostering quality learning and developmental outcomes for all Australian children and symbolises how family day care’s nurturing, home-based, small group setting supports and encourages a child’s own individual star qualities.
