Community day care centre to mark a quarter-century

THE Warwick region has been fortunate with local child care, the community having enjoyed the benefits of a local Family Day Care service since 1988.

The service has allowed countless parents to pursue their work and careers knowing their children are being cared for in a quality home-based child care and education service.

It is a service staffed by locally known, accredited and approved daycare educators who offer a warm, safe, secure and stimulating home environment catering for young babies through to pre-teens.

Service manager Alana McMillan heads the Warwick and District Family Day Care, which supports and upholds the high standards of family day care for local children.

The service is sponsored by the Family Day Care Association Queensland, that organisation representing the interests of co-ordinators, licensees, parents and educators.

Tomorrow, the local Family Day Care community will come together for a celebration day at the offices of the Warwick and District Family Day Care at 8 Palmerin St, Warwick, from 9.30-11.30am, to mark a quarter of a century of providing a day care service locally.

Mrs McMillan extends an invite to all who have been involved in day care over the past 25 years to join in celebrating the past, present and future of Warwick and District Family Day Care.

A morning of fun activities and celebrations for the whole family is planned, and a special celebration cake will be cut at 10:30am.

The Warwick and District Family Day Care was established in 1988 and is one of a network of about 300 services throughout Australia.

Each service is committed to maintaining quality home based child care and is supported by sponsors, which are non-profit organisations or local authorities.

In 2013 Family Day Care Association Queensland became the approved provider/licensee of Warwick and District Family Day Care.
