About Us


Fam­i­ly Day Care Aus­tralia was formed in 1988 to pro­vide effec­tive advo­ca­cy and pro­mo­tion of the Fam­i­ly Day Care pro­gram across Aus­tralia. Our pur­pose is to influ­ence social pol­i­cy and give the Fam­i­ly Day Care com­mu­ni­ty a nation­al, cohe­sive voice.

We are a mem­ber-based, finan­cial­ly inde­pen­dent organ­i­sa­tion, which:

  • Pro­vides infor­ma­tion, pol­i­cy advice and advocacy
  • Pro­motes Fam­i­ly Day Care as a qual­i­ty child care choice and career option
  • Offers an exten­sive range of prod­ucts and ser­vices to our members

    Fam­i­ly Day Care Aus­tralia is an apo­lit­i­cal, inde­pen­dent, nation­al body that sup­ports the tra­di­tion­al Fam­i­ly Day Care mod­el of a cen­tral coor­di­na­tion unit work­ing in part­ner­ship with edu­ca­tors, fam­i­lies, ser­vice oper­a­tors and local communities.
