National Engagement Program

Throughtout the unprecedented COVID-19 crisis, the team at Family Day Care Australia are working hard every day to continue to advocate for broader support for the sector, both at a service and educator level and are working tirelessly to ensure the sector remains as strong as possible in these unprecedented times. The safety of you and your families remains at the forefront of what we do.

In light of this and following the recent restrictions put in place by state, territory and federal governments, we have made the decision to postpone all face-to-face events scheduled to take place before 31 July 2020. This includes the Canberra, Perth and Brisbane National Engagement Program forums that were due to be held in April, May and July respectively.

We thank you for your understanding and support of this decision. We hope to be able to announce new dates for these events later in the year, and as your national peak body we look forward to supporting and promoting the sector through these events.

Free to Family Day Care Australia (FDCA) members, the National Engagement Program is an opportunity for family day care educators and service staff to receive professional development, network with other family day care professionals and receive important updates on the sector.

The program will include:

  • Professional development sessions
  • Free networking lunch
  • Important sector updates
  • Presentations from sector experts

The National Engagement Program is part of FDCA’s commitment to supporting, promoting and representing the family day care sector and is an important investment in driving continuous improvement and development for our members.
