Family Day Care
Wesley Mission Brisbane Family Day Care offers professional, safe, affordable and educational child care in small groups at educators’ homes. Recognising that children learn through play, Educators will work collaboratively with the children to identify their needs and interests and engage them in a wide range of play experiences, both indoors and outdoors.
Documentation of these experiences will be shared with you and will consider how each child:
- develops their sense of identity
- makes connections with and contributes to their world
- develops a strong sense of wellbeing
- becomes a confident and involved learner, and effective communicator.
The low ratio of one adult to four children allows educators to develop consistent relationships with you and your child while enjoying a play-based curriculum that follows a child’s needs, promotes their learning and development and takes time to explore the world around them.
We value the opportunity to work in partnership with parents to ensure that children are cared for in an environment that enhances their social, emotional and cognitive development and respects the diversity of culture and belief systems.
We are committed to creating authentic respectful and inclusive relationships with families.
Wesley Mission Brisbane Family Day care can assist you with your various needs including:
- weekday care
- emergency care
- 24 hour care during times of illness of absence
- before and after school care
- out of hours care
- irregular care for evenings or weekends.
Educators are supported and monitored by qualified Early Childhood Practitioners in the Coordination team.

As part of Wesley Mission Brisbane, our service incorporates the strong values this organisation upholds – integrity, respect, empowerment, hope, justice, compassion and innovation.
We believe children are unique, competent and capable individuals who learn best through play to develop skills that enable them to become lifelong learners. We value children’s exploration of nature, the environment, people and places as an invitation to open ended interactions, risk-taking, discovery and connection.
