About Excellence in Care Family Day Care Scheme
Hi! Excellence in Care is a team with a passion for providing quality education and care to the most important little person in your life.
We are a husband and wife team, and began operating in May 2011, and are excited to say we that still have founding educators with us today. For 8 years we have been setting quality standards, while still ensuring our costs remain low. Our team offers many years of industry experience, specialising in family day care.
No doubt you have come across our site for 1 of 2 reasons, either you are a family who is looking for care or you’re an educator who is looking to join an approved service. Our service has already undertaken rating and assessment in 2013, and overall we rated at Meeting the National Quality Standard. Since then we believe we've gone from strength to strength.
For families, you can be assured that our educators, who provide care in their own homes, are early childhood education and care professionals who will provide your child with a safe and secure learning environment, and one which reflects the diversity of your local community.
For educators, if you are like us and believe in giving all children the opportunity to participate positively in our community, desire to cultivate a sense of harmony, and are committed to ethical practice; if you want to provide opportunities to create empowerment and inclusion, while delivering quality care, support and love within the family day care sector, then it might be time to contact us to discuss your next step.
We strive to make sure that when you join Excellence in Care, as an educator or a parent, you are not only joining the team, but becoming part of our family.

Childhood is an exceptional time of life, to be treasured and loved in its own right. This is the time where foundations are laid for future health, learning and well-being and therefore Excellence in Care is committed to providing a learning environment where children can learn and develop by exploring their world through stimulating and challenging play.
We understand the importance of the need to plan for children’s learning around their interests and their own specific needs, guided by the National Quality Standards, the Early Years Learning Framework and the School Aged Care Learning Framework. This creates many opportunities for children to reach their potential in all areas of their development: physical health and well-being, social, emotional, language and cognitive, and spiritual.
We value the role of families by encouraging a partnership to enhance the child's sense of belonging in our service. We acknowledge and embrace the cultural diversity of our community, where values, rights and differing perspectives are respected, and understanding and empathy is encouraged.
Excellence in Care believes in the benefits of diversity, equity and inclusion. We all come from a range of situations and cultures, from international cultures all the way through to the cultures within individual families. It is by including all these elements that we encourage children to appreciate the people around them and the interesting ideas we can learn and share with each individual.
We will collaborate with staff, educators, families, the community and related support services to enrich children’s lives and support learning, while ensuring that we are always maintaining confidentiality and privacy at all times.
We strongly believe in a down to earth approach to family day care, providing and striving for excellence in care and education. We will identify areas we can improve upon and we are committed to continual improvement in order to motivate and mentor each individual educator and provide excellence in care and education for all children.
