Coastwide Family Day Care Educators provide education and care for children aged 6 weeks to 13 years in a small group setting within a home environment.

This home environment is designed to provide opportunities for play based learning, linked to the Early Years Learning Framework.

With a maximum of four non-school aged children, Educators can focus on individual interests, strengths and developmental needs.

Educators incorporate programming and activities which extend learning and respond to the learning opportunities in everyday life. Play based learning experiences reflect the diversity and unique interests of each child.

Children and their families also benefit from the opportunity to build strong and nurturing relationships with their consistent and familiar Educator. The opportunity to build strong relationships in early childhood is acknowledged to promote the development of supportive relationships throughout life.
