RESOURCES TO ASSIST PARENTS ENROLLING CHILDREN IN FAMILY DAY CARE
We have compiled a list of the most relevant information for families enrolling children into care in Western Australia.
How to choose the right family day care
Choosing a childcare centre for your child can be a difficult task. Where do you start, who do you trust? Think about your morning coffee, long black with a sweetener, extra hot flat white, double shot skim latte, soy mocha in a keep cup, the combinations and possibilities are both endless and ever changing. The same applies to childcare centres and family day care services. Operating hours, physical spaces, education philosophies, safety and curriculum are as individual to each centre as your morning cup of coffee is to you.
Our many years of experience has helped us compile a list of both the most common and important questions and information when deciding on a family day care centre for your child. We encourage you to use our parent checklist when calling or visiting a childcare centre to decide if it is the right fit for you and your child. You can also view our parent handbook which includes the nitty gritty about Elite Family Day Care centres. These resources are available below.
Print or save a copy of this checklist for reference when you contact your Family Day Care service.
