Family Day Care remains one of Australia's fastest growing forms of child care and plays a vital role in meeting the nation's ever-increasing demand for affordable, flexible and high quality early childhood education and care. Dubbo Family Day Care has been providing childcare to families within the Dubbo Community for over 40 years and the scheme has recently expanded with educators offering care to families in Wellington, Narromine and Warren communities.
Service Manager, Joanne Clark, said that expansion of services was due to those communities calling out for help. "The biggest need we found was care with flexible hours and an affordable price," she said. "We can cater for a range of time periods needed from two hours up to over night care". Dubbo Family Day Care's unique services allows you the peace of mind of choosing your primary care giver from the registered and qualified educators who operate from their own family home environments.
Each educator holds a Certificate III in Children's Services or higher qualification, and with groups limited to no more than four pre-school aged children, it ensures each child receives personal attention. Dubbo Family Day Care provides an affordable alternative for families as care is charged per hour, available 24 hours, 7 days per week, allowing you the convenience of shaping your child's care to suit your family's needs. Child Care Subsidy is also available to assist eligible families with costs.

As part of the expansion of Dubbo Family Day Care's services, the call has been put out to recruit more educators to help with growing demand. Joanne said that it was vital to have people that were not only passionate about child care and education, but also had great communication skills. "You develop intimate relationships with the children in your care, so these skills along with being able to build a strong rapport and be enthusiastic are important". While a minimum Certificate III in Children's Services is required, Joanne said that they can support applicants through the training, "We can assist people in obtaining their certificates and also provide other on the job training to help build their skill set and provide the best services to all our families".
