Policies and procedures are an essential part of the Mt Alexander Family Day Care Scheme.

Together, policies and procedures provide a roadmap for day-to-day operations and ensure our practices comply with the Child Care Subsidy (CCS) Law, Education and Care Services National Law and Regulations and the National Quality Frameworks (NQS). The Mt Alexander FDC policies provide information to families regarding children’s health and safety, immunisations, enrolments, absences and fees; they also guide decision-making and support a more streamlined internal process for all stakeholders.

Please see a list of downable policies below:
