Cowra Family Day Care provides flexible early and middle childhood care and education for small, mixed-age groups of children in our educators' own homes.
Our qualified, nurturing and diverse educators can provide long day care, before or after school care, school holiday care, rostered care, and under certain circumstances, overnight care.
Educators set their own fees within a range set by the Coordination Unit.
The Coordination Unit, at 20 Comerford St, is responsible for the day to day operation of the scheme. This includes recruiting, training and supporting educators to ensure they meet the requirements of licensing, regulations and the National Quality Standards. We also match families with available educators who can meet their individual needs, provide ongoing information and support and administer the Child Care Subsidy.
Staffing comprises the Director/ Nominated Supervisor, and two Support Coordinators, who are supported by the CECS Administration Department.
Cowra Family Day Care currently has 17 educators registered with the scheme: 11 in Cowra,
1 in Blayney, 1 in Millthorpe, and 4 in Young. We are currently recruiting educators in Cowra, Grenfell, Gooloogong, Blayney and Millthorpe, but will service any FDC educator within a 100 km radius of Cowra.
CECS Family Day Care operates under the National Quality Framework (NQF) and is currently rated as Meeting the National Quality Standards.
