Bilby Family Day Care

Bilby Family Day Care Group is a family business established in 2013 in Graceville, Queensland. We recognise the growing need in the community for childcare that goes beyond large, centre-based care and we believe that Family Day Care offers an alternative that is great for kids and meets the needs of modern families.

Family Day Care is home based care and education that offers children a nurturing, secure and stimulating home environment. Family Day Care Educators are professionally qualified and experienced at providing learning experiences for children through play and social interaction. We offer flexibility, stability, educator consistency. Care can be negotiated for a variety of times – early, late, standard hours, before and after school, vacation periods and in some circumstances overnight and weekends.

Families

Choosing childcare, especially for the first time, can be a daunting experience for any parent. There are many reasons for seeking childcare, including returning to work, changing family circumstances or respite care. Whatever the reason all parents want the best possible care for their children and the solution that best suits their family.

Family Day Care is a friendly and flexible child care service. We can provide you and your child with a place in, full or part time care, before and/or after school hours care, school vacation care, care for extended hours, overnight care, weekend care, care to accommodate your shift work, respite care or in special cases emergency care. Our Family Day Care educators work with children aged from just a few months right through to school age. Family Day Care is a great way for siblings and friends from mothers groups to stay connected and build strong relationships as they grow towards school age.

We work closely with our educators to provide children with rich learning experiences and a warm and caring environment.
