Supporting families needing In Home Care and the services which provide it in NSW & SA.

In Home Care

In Home Care is a special type of education and care for families that are excluded from family day care or centre based day care because of their family’s specific needs. In Home Care provides an educator to care for children in the children’s own home for families:

  • with challenging or complex needs (such as disability or serious illness of family member)
  • who are geographically isolated from other types of childcare
  • who work non-standard hours.

Just remember it is our role to advocate for your family. If you are eligible for In Home Care we will work to get the right educator for your children and family into your home as quickly as possible.

Not sure if you are eligible? Eligibility for In Home Care is restricted to those:

  • with challenging or complex needs (such as disability or serious illness of family member)
  • who are geographically isolated from other types of childcare
  • who work non-standard hours.

Challenging or complex needs mean:

  • a child with additional needs or a disability whose early childhood education and care requirements cannot be catered for in another approved child care setting, or through other government funded or community-based services
  • a family where a parent is undergoing treatment for a serious illness
  • other complex family situations that prevent families from accessing other approved child care types.
