     KIDS MATTER” family day care is a home style childcare service built on the foundation of
      supportive relationships.
It is based on the following values:  

  • Every child matters 
  • Every parent is a valued client 
  • Each Educator is a respected colleague and a friend




  • Is operated by an individual company that genuinely focuses on the best care for
        children in the community.
  • Abides by all government requirements for quality childcare but is not a large
        profit-driven corporation with bureaucratic constrictions.
  • Is committed to retaining services in rural areas, towns and communities by providing
        flexible quality childcare, small business opportunities and generating income.
  • Provides twenty-four hour telephone advice and support and after hours appointments
        to Educators and parents.

Children in KIDS MATTER” are given the best start to life. They are provided with personalized care in a safe and secure home environment. They, with their siblings, are cared for in small family-sized groups by one Educator who knows the children well and customizes activities and experiences to meet their individual needs. Routines are relaxed, flexible and tailored for each child.  Families are provided with holistic care – total care of their child.

Parents have peace of mind. They have personally selected their Educator and they can work or relax knowing that their child is happy and safe in care. They also have confidence that the Resource Team is always available and approachable if they need support or advice. Parents know their ideas and suggestions are welcomed and valued.

Educators are important members of the KIDS MATTER” service. The Resource Team supports, trains and resources each Educator to provide quality childcare from home and to set up and operate a viable and satisfying small business. Educators are encouraged to promote and individualise their business and to take pride in the important service they offer the community. They are regularly consulted and have input into the day to day management and the future directions of KIDS MATTER” and are included in the friendly KIDS MATTER” social network. They are offered flexible training methods and have regular support visits.
