About Us

    Winner of the 2015 Family Day Care Australia WA Service of the Year award, Bright Futures Children's Services is managed by a Coordination Unit, staffed by a team of child care professionals who support educators in the provision of quality education and care to children between 0 - 12 years.

    Our Service supports three programs; Family Day Care, In-Home Child Care and “My Time”, an Aboriginal playgroup facilitated by our staff for local Aboriginal families to access. In-Home Child Care may be available to families who successfully meet specific criteria.

    All educators have met the fit and proper criteria and are registered with Bright Futures to operate a Family Day Care or In Home Care business in accordance with all regulations and legal requirements, including a current “Working With Children Check”.

    Staff and educators work within the "National Quality Standards Framework", "Belonging, Being and Becoming: Early Years Learning Framework for Australia" and the "My Time, Our Place: Framework for School Age Care in Australia".  These frameworks guide every part of our business.

    The City of Kwinana is the Approved Provider of our service and as a part of this vibrant local government, the Service is also included in the City's assessment against the requirements of ISO standards, ensuring that the management and administration systems we have in place are sound, sustainable and continually striving for improvements.

    Our Vision

    Is “excellent family day care where every child will have a bright future” and to meet this vision we act in a professional and respectful manner, valuing partnerships and diversity. 

    Our Mission

    Is to “Engage, support, resource and inspire educators to work in collaboration with families ensuring each child reaches their full potential.”

    Our primary focus is always what is in the best interest of the child and, in doing so, we honour the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.

    Our Core Values

    These are:

    • Differences will be valued in our Service;
    • Promote access and equality for all;
    • Communicate open and honestly;
    • Strive for excellence;
    • Promote collaborative relationships;
    • To be focused on positive outcomes.
