How to seek care with our Family Day Care Educators

Family day care provides education and care for children up to 13 years of age in the homes of Family Day Care Educators.

In-venue Family Day Care is provided by FDC Educator’s in an approved venue (e.g. a school, within another community building or community hall etc).

Family Day Care and In-venue FDC provides a safe, secure and stimulating environment for your children, with education and care being provided for small groups of children in the FDC Educators home or an approved venue. Family Day Care provides the opportunity for you and your children to develop a close relationship with your FDC Educator.

With most settled and positions full, we strongly encourage families to join the waitlist to pick up any casual days or upcoming vacancies for Creswick FDC or Clunes after school.

Demand for places with our Family Day Care Educators is currently high. Once enrolled on our waitlist, you will remain active, and we will be in contact if a position becomes available.

How to join the waitlist for Family Day Care:

By completing this online, we will have a more organized file AND you will only need to update your information once you have a spot here. Please fill in as much as you can- attach any supporting documents such as immunisation and/or medical info. This saves you time later on.

Go to:

Select waitlist

Fill out as much of the form as possible but make sure you enter in your child’s date of birth, child’s CRN, parent’s CRN, your contact details, priority of access, days sought and immunisation status.   Parent 1 should be the parent registering with Centrelink for CCS (Child Care Subsidy).

Now either add another child, print for own record (if you wish) and SUBMIT

Understanding Priority of Access:

Our Priority of Access Policy ensures that we offer childcare and kindergarten places to children and families with the greatest need.
The Priority of Access Guidelines must be used to allocate available child care places
where there are more families requiring care than places available.
When filling vacant places, we are regulated to fill them according to the following priorities:
Priority 1 – a child at risk of serious abuse or neglect
Priority 2 – a child of a single parent who satisfies, or of parents/carers who both
satisfy, the work, training, study test
Priority 3 – any other child.
