Protection for every part of your business!

FDCA offers more than just comprehensive public liability insurance to protect your business. We also offer a range of options to protect your home.

Home and contents insurance

Did you know that many standard home and contents policies won’t cover you if you’re running a business from home? Even if the claim isn’t business related!

Our home and contents policies have been specifically designed with the needs of family day care in mind, which means your business won’t have an impact on any claim you make.

Every home is different

We know that every educator, and every home, is different.

That’s why our home and contents policies come in a range of shapes and sizes to meet the different needs and budgets of our members.
