Starting a Childcare Business
Family Day Care
The family day care sector is an essential part of the Early Childhood Education and Care sector, providing flexible, affordable and accessible education and care.
There is a high demand for Early Childhood Education and Care services Australia-wide. It plays a vital role in meeting the diverse and changing childcare needs of a significant proportion of Australian families, while at the same time responding to parents’ desire for a ‘home-based’ and ‘family-like’ environment for their children.
Children's participation rates in early childhood programs continue to increase, but national shortages in quality care givers creates a unique opportunity for educators.
You can claim per child per hour, and extra fees and gap fees may apply and may be charged for your services.
The family day care sector offers significantly higher levels of flexible sessions than centre-based day care by offering overnight care, extended operational hours and weekend care.
1,398,050 children attended a Child Care Subsidy approved child care service in the September quarter 2021.
