Family day care provides families with the unique opportunity to have their children participate in an early childhood education and care program, in small groups and in a home-based setting.
Children are nurtured and cared for in the homes of registered family day care educators, who are resourced, supported and monitored through the ERFDC service during their membership.
ERFDC is a not-for-profit service sponsored by the Shire and approved through the Education and Care Regulatory Unit (Department for Communities WA).
Educators may care for babies and children up until the commencement of secondary school and often cater to the flexible hours required of parents as well as before and after school/kindy care and vacation care.
Educators bring a wealth of skills, knowledge and diversity to the team. Our members are predominantly throughout the local governments of Mundaring, Swan, Kalamunda, Belmont, Bassendean, Bayswater and Chittering with several educators located in other neighbouring areas.
