Collective Family Day Care Scheme is licensed by the Department of Education and Training. The scheme consists of a network of educators who provide quality education and care for children in a home environment . Collective Family Day Care Coordination Unit, employs highly trained quality staff to support and assist educators.
Under the Education and Care Services National Regulations (2011) educators can provide education and care for a maximum of seven children, four being under school age, and three school age children. The educators own children are included in these numbers.
Collective FDC believe that children learn in an environment in which they are given opportunities to develop skills through play based learning. We believe that children should be given opportunities to direct their own play and are encouraged to be independent and confident learners.
