Child Care

Family Day Care

Family Day Care is provided in the homes of registered educators. Educators can care for up to seven children in total, but no more than four preschoolers at a time. Care can also be provided in an approved venue such as a school.

Family Day Care educators currently work in Alexandra, Kinglake, Kilmore, Seymour, Woori Yallock, Healesville, Broadford, Hidden Valley, Chum Creek, Seville and Millgrove.

A place with Family Day Care is subject to availability.

Families using child care may be entitled to the Child Care Subsidy (CCS) to reduce child care costs. Please ask about the Child Care Subsidy when you speak with one of our child care team members.

Educators may charge in the range of $9 - 13 per hour, depending on the range of services they offer. They may also have set session fees and minimum hours.

There is also a $2 per hour, per child administration levy (capped for large families).

You can complete an online enrolment form here.
