The City of Cockburn Family Day Care (FDC) Approved Service supports FDC Educators to provide nurturing care and quality early childhood education in small group, home-based environments. The FDC Educators are carefully selected before they are registered.
The service focuses on childcare provision for children under school age, however some before and after school care and school vacation care is also offered.
The service operates across the southern suburbs of Perth. Areas include Cockburn, Melville, Fremantle, East Fremantle, Cannington and Armadale.
Please contact Centrelink to obtain the required Customer Reference number (CRN) for the enrolling parent and each child being enrolled into the FDC Service. You also need to apply for the Commonwealth childcare subsidies at this time.
