All family day care services in Australia, along with long day care and centre-based services, are regulated under ACECQA and work under the National Quality Standards, Early Years Learning Framework (Belonging, Being and Becoming), and the Framework for School Age Children (My Time, Our Place). Children can thrive in both kinds of care, when services take advantages their particular strengths.
Some of the particular strengths that can feature in family day care include
Wynnum Family Day Care & Education Service is a not for profit community based family day care service. The approved provider of Wynnum Family Day Care and Education Service is Community Childcare Incorporated. This association is managed by a voluntary Management Committee, which accepts overall responsibility for the Education and Care Service, ensuring that the Education and Care Service meets the needs of the local community and is able to respond with flexibility to changing needs.
The coordination unit is central to the operational functioning of the Education and Care Service, supporting the provision of quality education and care. The coordination unit is the point of contact, registration, referral, resourcing, monitoring and support for parents and educators. Coordinators support educators in curriculum decision making, planning for children’s learning and development and in their interactions with families and children. The coordination unit works in a close partnership with educators to ensure they uphold organisational values and meet requirements set by government legislation. The coordination unit supports educators to participate in ongoing professional development on a range of topics relevant to children’s development and learning. The coordination unit also administers government child care subsidies on behalf of eligible families. Within the coordination unit, team members manage individual programs.

This paper has been written in response to the many requests received by Wynnum Family Day Care & Education Serviced to tell their story about the journey the organisation has been on to achieve the successes of the last few years. In very concrete terms these successes can be measured by significant organisational growth at a time when many family day care services are struggling to retain educator numbers or attract new quality educators. The success of WFDC has also been recognised by the family day care sector, and more broadly the early childhood education and care industry. [Download]
