Finding Care

Finding care which works for you and your child is important, so it is important you take the time to choose the Educator who best suits your needs. Before you visit a service of any care type, including Foundations Family Day Care, think about things that are important to you and your family and make note of some questions you would like to ask the Educator.

These may include;

  • How will I know what activities my child has done that day?
  • What is the sleeping routine like?
  • How will my child’s heritage be incorporated in the education program?
  • How does the service reflect the community in which it is located?

You can see a range of educational settings operated by our Educators by going to their location and then selecting their name here:

If you are interested in accessing care through Foundations Family Day Care, please contact us on either 0421 599 416 or We will ask you a few questions about your and your child’s needs and will refer you to some Educators who appear to meet what you are looking for.

Please give the Educators a call and arrange a time to meet them. Have a look at the physical set-up of the whole service and consider whether your child will be happy and safe. Investigate whether the service is equipped to meet your child’s particular needs, including disability or cultural requirements.

Your Family Day Care Educator will become a very important person in your child’s life. Developing a strong partnership built on mutual respect and communication will help ensure your child gets the best possible care.

Enrolling your child

Once you have decided which Educator you will choose, you need to register for care. Due to legal requirements, we must have a copy of your child’s Immunisation History Statement. You can get a copy of this quickly and easily from your MyGov account with Medicare linked. (Please ensure it is the Immunisation History statement, not the Report, as the Report does not have the legally required wording.) Then, go to and click the Enrol  button. Fill in the form, including attaching the Immunisation History Statement and click the submit button. (We don’t recommend completing the form on your phone as many phones will time out.)

Once your form has been satisfactorily completed, it will be sent to your Educator for you to sign with him/her. Your Educator will then email it back to the Coordination Unit for processing, ready for your child to start.
Your child will have received a hat when they registered with Foundations Family Day Care. If you require a new hat, the cost is $15.
