“We feel Mandy’s Little Blessings in Highfields is an amazing place for our little girl. Sapphire immediately felt comfortable, running to play straight away. Mandy answered all my questions and made me feel very confident with the whole experience. Her attitude and positivity just lightens our world and her loving and caring nature makes us feel she is a great fit for our little girl.”


“Our family got that little bit bigger when we enrolled our first child with Nicki at Kind Kids, Brightwater. Her family became an extension of our own and we are forever grateful for the way she has nurtured and supported our children.”

Nat Laing

Frequently asked questions

How can I find family day care near me?

To find a family day care educator to meet your childcare needs, please contact us using the form below and we will be able to assist you with details of any available vacancies in your area.

What is the role of the coordination unit?

The Kath Dickson Family Day Care coordination unit is the approved provider and works in a close partnership with our family day care educators. Educators are visited regularly by a coordinator to ensure that environments are safe and meet the requirement of the service and government regulation. Coordinators support educators in curriculum decision making, planning for children’s learning and development, and in their interactions with families and children. The coordination unit also administers government child care subsidies on behalf of eligible families.

Who do I communicate with and how?

You are welcome to contact the Kath Dickson Family Day Care team at any time, with any questions you may have. Your educator will also share with you information about your child on a regular basis through verbal communication, such as at drop-off or pick-up, as well as through the Harmony systems parent portal. Kath Dickson Family Day Care will also use a variety of media to keep families informed of changes happening in relation to legislation or service operations.

What will it cost me?

Each educator operates as an independent business and provides care in an environment that is unique to the service they provide. For this reason, each one of our educators independently set their own fees, within set parameters. Parents should discuss the cost of care directly with their educator.

What happens if my educator is unavailable?

When your educator is planning to take holidays and care is still required, you can either make your own arrangements with friends or family, or can contact us to find alternative care within our network of registered educators.
