Eurobodalla’s Children’s Services will celebrate the uniqueness of all children this week for National Family Day Care Week.
Eurobodalla Family Day Care provides education and care to children aged 0-12 in a small group setting in the homes of qualified educators
In its sixth year, National Family Day Care Week recognises and promotes the important role family day care plays in the development and wellbeing of more than 206,000 children across Australia.
Council’s Coordinator Children’s Services Louise Hatton said the theme for this year’s National Family Day Care Week was “every child is a star”.
“This year we’ll be celebrating the individuality of all children in the Family Day Care community with displays in Eurobodalla libraries and a special superheros and superstars playgroup on Wednesday 9th May,” she said.
“We invite all families with young children to come along to Gundary Park in Moruya from 10am-12pm and enjoy a healthy morning tea as well as themed games and activities such as sensory play, a Spiderman maze and a photo booth.”
Ms Hatton said National Family Day Care Week also acknowledged and celebrated the valuable contribution of family day care educators.
“Our educators shine year-round too, nurturing and supporting the growth and development of 189 children across Eurobodalla,” she said.
“Our educators plan experiences based on the needs of each individual child, enabling the children to explore their dreams and learn new skills in a small-group home environment.”
