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. Eligible families can receive a Child Care Subsidy for the cost of family day care.
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.
