Family Day Care

Family Day Care is a child care service offering families affordable, personalised care by a qualified educator in a safe and nurturing environment. Educators may care for up to 7 children at any one time, with no more than 4 children under school age. We accept children ranging from school age, preschoolers and younger. 

We also offer all day session, before and after school care and holiday care.

About Our Services

In February 2016 Lake Bolac opened an In-Venue Family Day Care Facility, which operates from the rear of Lake Bolac College in the previous Student Centre. 

The facility is managed by two separate yet amazing Family Day Care businesses, 'Lake Bolac Family Day Care' and 'Lisa's Little Learners'.  Both businesses are committed to providing a high-quality child care service in a natural, home like environment. Our approach to learning allows children the opportunity to explore their natural world and learn through play at their own development stage.  We aim to provide an atmosphere where families feel welcome, comfortable and confident in the care they receive.

Both Family Day Care services operate under the Inspired Family Day Care coordination unit. We work closely with the Inspired Family Day Care team, families attending the services and the local & district community.

Inspired EC was established in 2008 and now works with services all throughout Australia. "While our passion lies in nature based education and the importance of play in high quality environments, what really sets apart is our approach to working with early childhood professionals. We always have been and always will be a family friendly business. At Inspired we understand just how big a decision is to place your child into the care of an Early Childhood service or educator. We appreciate that all families want the best for their children and aim to support families through this process"

Inspired Family Day Care was established in response to the voices of families and educators seeking a more natural and challenging experience of childhood for their children. It is founded on the belief that all children deserve a childhood filled with wonder and adventure. We have passionate educators and mentors in NSW, QLD, VIC and ACT. Inspired Family Day Care has been established to provide quality family day care in home environments that have an appreciation and connection to the natural world. If you want your child to enjoy simply being a child, to learn through play, to have opportunities to engage in a small group - this is the service for you! 

Some of the benefits include:

  • skilled, passionate educators
  • a small group of children with one dedicated educator 
  • child care subsidy (if eligible)

Lake Bolac Family Day Care

Educator - Jessica Jackson 
Jessica has been operating since 2016 with Lake Bolac Family Day Care
Operating Mondays, Tuesdays & Wednesdays 8:30am - 5:00pm

Jessica has lived in the community of Lake Bolac since 2005, after moving here from Ballarat. In 2015 Jessica attended a kindergarten meeting where she was approached by Sally Grey from Glenthompson FDC. After hearing about Jessica's passion in caring for children, Sally invited Jessica to join her in becoming a FDC educator and work alongside each other to run a FDC in Lake Bolac. 

After being a part of this community for so long, Jessica met existing and new families to the area and watched them struggle to find care in such a remote area. Some families not having the support they need to be able to return to work, is something Jessica was all too familiar with, not having family around to support her in doing the same and struggling financially. Jessica jumped at the opportunity, to be able to help families who don't have that extended family or friends for support. In 2015 Jessica enrolled into South West TAFE Warrnambool to begin her studies for a Diploma in Early Childhood Education and Care. It was a struggle juggling studies, work, family and other day to day obstacles, but she achieved her Diploma in the end. 

After raising two amazing children, which are now enrolled at Lake Bolac College, watching them grow, develop and being able to educate them about the world they live in, has given Jessica the passion to continue down this road. Jessica have been operating as Lake Bolac Family Day Care now for 4 years, and each year keeps getting better! The families involved and community support has been ongoing all these years, and Jessica is greatly appreciative of it. "I feel like my work is really not a job, but I treat it as an extended family".

She believes it is important for children to grow and develop in a nurturing, safe and stimulating environment that promotes health, happiness and a desire to learn.
