Celebrating National Family Day Care week

Inner West Council is celebrating National Family Day Care Week with a series of events in early May. Media are invited to attend a morning tea on Tuesday, 8 May, from 9:30am. 

Now in its sixth year, National Family Day Care Week is held from Monday, 7 May to Sunday, 13 May. 

National Family Day Care Week recognises and promotes the important role family day care educators and services play in the development and wellbeing of more than 206,000 children across Australia. 

The 2018 theme, Every Child is a Star, celebrates identity, culture and community. 

Inner West Council Family Day Care (FDC) service will host a morning tea, at 22 Foster Street, Leichhardt from 9:30am-12 noon. 

The morning will feature: 

• Awards presented to educators for their long service 

• Face painters and entertainment 

• Little Travel Adventures show, which will take the children on a ‘trip around the world’ with music and dance 

Special guest is Diana Impala, a 1985 educator who was featured in The Sydney Morning Herald. 

Leichhardt and Marrickville FDC offers a boutique service of 35 registered educators who provide high quality care in the community. 

The headquarters of Leichhardt FDC, at 22 Foster Street, Leichhardt, is a beautiful heritage house that was built in 1878. 

The house hosts thrice-weekly Educational Play Sessions which allows children, educators and families from the local community to play and learn together, with the aim of building relationships between families and educators in an engaging learning environment.
