Family day care australia international conference

18 - 21 July 2012, brisbane convention centre

Children the heart of the Dream

Sponsors & Exhibitors

You are invited to participate in the National Family Day Care Association Conference as a sponsor and/or exhibitor. This conference is expected to attract over 800 family day care providers and coordinators from across Australia and Internationally. Delegates will include early childhood professionals, academics, trainers, government representatives, advocates and researchers.

Family day care is a unique, home-based childcare service providing quality care for children in the homes of carers, supported by a local specialist coordination and resource team. Family day care provides learning and development in a safe, secure and stimulating home environment for babies and children up to 12 years of age. Through the national conference we aim to promote learning and an ongoing exchange of ideas amongst those involved in the delivery and coordination of childcare services in a diverse range of settings. The program will cover hands-on aspects of childcare as well as current research and forward thinking approaches to early learning.

The conference offers a great opportunity to promote your services and products to our members and others in the field on Family Day Care.
