What is Family Day Care?

As a parent, one of the biggest decisions you’ll have to make in the first few years of your child’s life is where and what care they’ll receive when you want to go back to work.

Why should Family Day Care be at the top of your list:

  • With Family Day Care, children are aged between 6 weeks and 12 years of aged and are nurtured in a small group setting to further develop their skills and knowledge.
  • Family Day Care Services offer very flexible hours, including after hours, weekend, overnight and holidays all within the comfort of a nourishing, home environment.
  • My Place Family Day Care is a network of trained and registered educators who provide for other people’s children in their own homes.  Educators have been carefully selected, supervised and operate under the Education and Care Services National Regulations and work within the National Quality Standards, ensuring quality and continuous improvements.


My Place Family Day Care is approved by the Queensland Government Office for Early Childhood Education and Care, as well as by Australian Government Department of Education.
