What is Family Daycare?

Family Daycare is an approved form of child care that is provided in the family daycare educators own home. 

Family daycare educators are early childhood education and care professionals, registered with a Family Daycare Scheme that is responsible for approving, supporting, training and advising its educators.  

Jervis Bay Little Explorers is registered with Shoalhaven Family Daycare Scheme. We are also proud members of our national peak body, Family Daycare Australia.

Family Daycare follows the principles and practices of the National Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) and operates under the National Quality Framework (NQF). 

All Educators must hold current first aid and CPR certificates and have completed training in emergency management of asthma and anaphylaxis. 

The small home based setting offered through family daycare creates strong bonds and promotes effective early learning and social development. Family Daycare has been partnering with families for over 35 years.
