Selecting childcare, especially for the first time, can be a daunting and challenging experience for any parent. Whether you are returning to work, or looking for some respite care, Family Day Care could be the right option for you and your child or children.
Childcare centres providing long day care may suit your needs, but they may not have vacancies, or may not be flexible enough to cope with your working hours. Some parents complain that long day care overwhelms their children, with so many other children and a never ending stream of sniffles to bring home. This, coupled with the high children to staff ratios, and high staff turnover, has led many parents to look for an alternative to long day care.
Family Day Care is a friendly and flexible child care service, and can provide you and your child with a place in, full time care, part time care, before and after school hours care, school vacation care, care for extended hours, overnight care, weekend care, care to accommodate your shift work, and respite, or in special cases emergency care. Care Provider to child ratios vary based upon the ages of the children in care, but are consistently lower than long day care.
