NATIONAL FAMILY DAY CARE WEEK – EVERY CHILD IS A STAR

National Family Day Care Week is coming up this May and we’re calling on the family day care sector to join in the celebrations. In this its sixth year, National Family Day Care Week will run from Monday, 7 May through to Sunday 13 May 2018.

The purpose of National Family Day Care Week is to recognise and promote the important role family day care educators and services play in the development and wellbeing of more than 206,000 children across Australia.

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.

All family day care services, educators, children and their families are invited to take part either by attending or hosting their own National Family Day Care Week celebration from May 7 through to May 13.
