Family Day Care named best in Australia in 2019

Tuesday, 17 December 2019

Our Family Day Care was named the 2019 National Service of the Year at the Excellence in Family Day Care Awards Gala.

The Excellence in Family Day Care Awards are nationwide, and recognise the outstanding work done by educators, coordinators and services in the family day care sector to deliver high quality early childhood education and care to children across Australia.

They are the only national awards dedicated entirely to the family day care sector.

We currently have 33 qualified Early Childhood Family Day Care Educators who work from their homes providing education and care to around 330 children a week, throughout the City of Greater Geelong.

Our Family Day Care is the first Victorian service team to win National Service of the Year in the history of the award.

This is an outstanding acknowledgement of the level of service our educators provide.

The awards ceremony took place at the Hotel Grand Chancellor Hobart, in front of almost 200 guests who travelled from across Australia to be part of the sector’s annual night of nights.

This national award is excellent recognition for our early childhood educators, who do a wonderful job in building the foundations of learning and well-being of our region’s children.

These awards shine a light on the hard work and dedication of our early childhood educators, the City is incredibly proud to have a fantastic team shaping the minds of the future of Geelong.

We congratulate all of the award participants, for their extraordinary contributions across our community.
