Family Day Care

providing nurturing care in a secure and enriching home environment

Family Day Care is an approved home based childcare providing quality care in the homes of registered family day care educators supported by a coordination unit.  Family day care provides nurturing care in a secure and enriching home environment for babies and children up to 12 years of age.

Adventure Patch provides Family Day Care services across Tasmania through partnership with both the Adventure Patch Family Day Care Service and Launceston Family Day Care.

Our registered and professional Educators follow the Adventure Patch philosophy of fun and learning through play and adventure.

Family Day Care can offer care:

  • During standard hours
  • During extended hours
  • Overnight
  • School holidays
  • Before/after school

In Family Day Care, children learn through play whilst mixing with a small group.  They participate in activities planned by the Educator to suit each child’s individual needs.  Children are able to connect with their world and community in real and meaningful ways.  Family Day Care offers genuine and often long term relationships between children and their early childhood educators.

Our qualified Family Day Care Educators provide a reassuring and welcoming environment for your child within their own home. We encourage fun, adventure, free spirited play and a strong connection between child, Educator and the Adventure Patch community.

Family Day Care can provide education and care for babies and children up to 13 years (or high school) age offering the possibility for siblings to be cared for together in one location.

Family Day Care hours are negotiable, and you’ll be supported by Adventure Patch to find the right Educator to suit your family.
