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:

Edu­ca­tion and Care Ser­vices Nation­al Reg­u­la­tions and Nation­al Qual­i­ty Framework

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.
