Alice Springs Family Day Care Inc is a community based not for profit organisation, supported and funded by the Department of Education. The organisation is governed by the NT legislation. Follow the Link:
Educators earn an income by providing care in their own homes for small groups of children and are supported by the Coordination Unit. The Coordination Unit assists families and Educators with placement of children, provides training and resources to Educators, and information to families who use the service.
Family Day Care combines the benefits of other childcare options with the warmth and intimacy of growing up at home. Children in Family Day Care develop a close relationship with one Educator while being encouraged to learn through play-based programs. The smaller sized groups of children in Family Day Care mean children receive more individual attention as well as the social interaction they need and enjoy.
