Council operates a Family Day Care Service in the Wingecarribee Shire from a Coordination Unit situated in the East Bowral Community Centre, Boardman Road Bowral.
Family Day Care provides care in a "home-based" setting by self employed registered Educators, who operate under Council's license. Educators are recruited and monitored by childcare professionals attached to the Coordination Unit. Care is provided in small groups and children enjoy the security of care in a familiar setting with only one adult Educator.
The Service is bound by the Children (Education and Care Services National Law Application) Act 2010 and the Education and Care Services National Regulations 2011 and monitored by the relevant government authority.
Families utilising Family Day Care may be eligible for Commonwealth Government Child Care Benefit (CCB) or the Child Care Rebate (CCR).
