Information for Families

Welcome

We welcome your enquiry about our service. Greater Hume Children Services is a flexible, professional home based child care service where children are provided with quality care and education in a warm, friendly environment.

Our flexible childcare options cater for full-time, part-time, casual, overnight care, weekend care, before and after school and vacation care.

Educators are registered, trained and supported by the experienced and highly qualified coordination unit staff.
Educators are acting as agents for our service but the agreement to provide care and education is between Greater Hume Children Services and the family.

Greater Hume Children Services includes the services of:

  • Family Day Care where children are provided with education and care in a home environment with a registered educator,
  • In Venue Family Day Care where a venue or premises other than a home can be licensed. In Venue Family Day Care must be approved by the Department of Education and Training and can only be approved where there is a demonstrated unmet demand for childcare.

Greater Hume Children Services is auspiced by Greater Hume Council and has been operating since 1994. The service operates in Greater Hume Shire and also in Albury, Federation, Indigo, Snowy Valleys, Wodonga and Benalla council areas.

The service has a proud record of quality assurance and complies with the requirements of The Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA).
