About Coffs Harbour Family Day Care

Home > About

Coffs Harbour Family Day Care is a well-established provider of home-based childcare services on the Coffs Coast. Since our launch in 1984, we have established a longstanding reputation for offering high-quality, reliable family day care for local families by local educators.

Our Coordination Unit consists of a team of  5 staff who coordinate, support and monitor a network of more than 50 educators who look after the children of hundreds of local families.

Although our services have no strict boundaries, we currently have home-based care providers located as far north as Corindi to Bonville in the south and out west to Nana Glen, Glenreagh and Coramba .  Main locations include Coffs Harbour, Woolgoolga and various Northern Beaches suburbs, Sawtell, Toormina, Boambee and the Orara Valley.

We are committed to providing reliable, flexible and affordable family day care services to families in the Coffs Harbour area and offering full support to the educators in our scheme.

Early Years Learning Framework

Coffs Harbour Family Day Care educators use the Early Years Learning Framework for young children to ensure that your child’s experience in day care is of the highest quality.

The Early Years Learning Framework is a relatively new national early learning framework for children from birth to five years old. Developed and trialled by experienced early childhood educators, academics, parents and carers, it focuses on play-based learning that is engaging and builds success for life.

Our educators will create a learning program that builds on your child’s interests and abilities, and will keep you in touch with your child’s progress. Through the Framework’s five learning goals, educators will help your child develop:

  • A strong sense of their identity
  • Connections with their world
  • A strong sense of wellbeing
  • Confidence and involvement in their learning; and
  • Effective communication skills
