Family Day Care Australia launches the ninth annual Excellence in Family Day Care Awards

Family Day Care Australia (FDCA) is excited to announce that nominations for the 2020 Excellence in Family Day Care Awards are now open.

The Excellence in Family Day Care Awards are the only awards dedicated to the family day care sector and in 2020 FDCA will be recognising educators, coordinators and services from all around Australia.

This year sees the ninth edition of the annual awards program, which provides families, educators and service staff with the opportunity to share their stories about what makes their educator, coordinator or service such an integral and special contributor to their lives and to the lives of the children in their care.

"The Awards allow us to showcase stories and achievements of excellence that make family day care the natural choice for children, families, communities and early childhood education professionals across the country," says FDCA Chief Executive Officer Andrew Paterson.

During its history, the Excellence in Family Day Care Awards has seen almost 24,000 nominations placed for educators, coordinators and services across Australia and has resulted in over 850 awards being presented.

"The Awards continue to go from strength to strength and the sheer number of nominations we receive each year are a testament to the crucial role that family day care plays in the lives of families all around Australia."

Nominations for the 2020 Excellence in Family Day Care Awards close on 13 August 2020, with the National Winners to be announced at the Awards Gala Dinner in Adelaide on 21 November 2020.
