Making the right choice in child care for your family is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. If you and your family are thinking about childcare, the Colac Otway Shire’s Family Day Care scheme could be the option for you as it has been for hundreds of children and families across our shire. The scheme offers quality child care that is based in a home environment. The service can look after children from birth to 12 years of age. We provide small groups which allow children the opportunity to get the individual attention that they need.
The care that can be provided is flexible meaning that it can be full time care or part time care, be on a casual basis, before and after school or kindergarten sessions, shift work and in an emergency 24 hour care. All educators are registered with the scheme and must comply with regulatory requirements outlined by the Government. They are resourced and supported by the schemes Coordination Unit.
