Family Day Care is:

  • Safe, secure home based child care service for children aged 6 weeks to 13 years.
  • A consistent and familiar child care service where siblings can be cared for together.
  • A small group environment for a maximum of 4 non-school aged children and up to 3 school aged children using Before and After School or Vacation care.
  • Play based learning activities to support each child’s individual interests, strengths and developmental needs.
  • Educational program and practice linked to the approved learning frameworks:
    • Belonging, Being and Becoming: The Early Years Learning Framework for Australia
    • My Time, Our Place: Framework for School Aged Care in Australia.


With Educators based across the Central Coast, Hunter New England, North Coast, North Sydney and Western NSW regions, Coastwide Family Day Care has been acknowledged as Meeting National Quality Standards, by the Department of Education.


With almost 40 years of experience we are proud to celebrate our mission and philosophy.

Our philosophy has been shaped by consultation with educators, children and their families, and our communities and is informed by our commitment to the guiding principles of the National Quality Framework, the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and the Early Childhood Australia Code of Ethics.
