Enrol your Child

Welcome to Family Day Care

Thank you for choosing Bathurst Family Day Care.  Family Day Care is a nurturing home-based education and care setting.  Children develop strong connections with their educators and other children in care.

A unique advantage of FDC is the opportunity to select an Educator and environment that suits your families needs and aspirations for your child's learning and development. 

To enable a smooth transition, parents and children are encouraged to visit the selected Educators prior to commencing in care. This provides opportunity to become familiar and comfortable in the Educators home environment.
