Family Day Care





Kentish Family Day Care

Family Day Care with Kentish is a high-quality, home-based early childhood education and care service – catering for children aged from 6 weeks through to 12 years

Family Day Care operates under the same National Quality Framework (NQF) as other forms of childcare, incorporating

  • National regulations
  • Quality and qualification standards
  • Recognised educational frameworks
  • An assessment and ratings process

Parents are eligible for the Federal Government Child Care Benefit and Child Care Subsidy.

Our Northern Territory day care services are suitable for families seeking care and education in a small group setting. We are all about making things easier for families. While the bulk of our educators provide child care during business hours, a number of our educators can provide child care to work around parent’s shift work as well as irregular hours.

If you would like your child to benefit from our award winning family day care service, or you would like some information on becoming a registered family day care educator/provider, please don’t hesitate to contact our friendly staff today.
