What is family day care?

Every child is unique and so is our learning approach. Family Day Care is an approved education and care service, delivered at the comfort of individual Family Day Care educators’ homes. Each home is personalised, safe and educational.

Family Day Care allows a great deal of flexibility for hours and fees to suit your family’s needs. My Place Family Day Care offers care during standard hours, before/after school, school holidays, overnight and even weekends. Transport options between kindergarten/school/home are also available.

Family Day Care permits only up to 7 children under care at any given time. Delivered in a unique small-group setting, your child will receive more personalised care and attention, and more importantly, help them form strong, secure relationships to support social learning.

All our Family Day Care Educators are qualified professionals, trained to implement the Early Years Learning Framework for early childhood’s play-based learning, and My Time, Our Place Framework for school-aged child enrichment.

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. My Place is also a member of the Family Day Care Association of Queensland, achieving an overall rating of Exceeding National Quality Standards.
