Looking for a meaningful role that will allow you to work from home?

FDC team pix 1We are looking for committed Family Day Care educators who want to make a difference.

If you are looking to grow in a meaningful role that will allow you to care for your children or grandchildren while having the flexibility of working from your own home, then we would love to talk to you.

Woden Weston Family Day Care (FDC) is a home based childcare option that allows educators to:

  • work for Woden Community Service, a trusted community organisation in the ACT
  • work with a small group of children
  • access training and support from WCS’s FDC coordinators
  • access a toy library and play group
  • enjoy all the benefits of holidays, annual leave, long service leave, superannuation and salary packaging

WCS takes care of all the paperwork and you won’t have to worry about chasing up payments.  You just care for the children!

We are licenced by the ACT Government and operate under the National Quality Standards and Framework.

If this sound likes you, then please call Jenny Pearce on (02) 6234 6854 or email her at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Meet some of our Family Day Care educators


Bruce and Lee Popple

Bruce and Lee Popple started their careers as Family Day Care educators back in November 1999.  They have been with us now for almost 18 years.

Bruce used to work as a heavy machinery mechanic until deciding to join his wife, Lee, in this new venture that would allow him to work from home.

“I didn’t really feel comfortable telling others what I was doing when I first started but now I feel really proud of what I do,” he said. He’s still having a ball and loves working with children. He says it keeps him young.  

What’s the best part of the job? According to Bruce, it’s being part of the extended family and seeing the children you care for grow up.

“I have taken care of babies from the time they were 10 weeks old and have seen them grow into teenagers. That’s an incredible feeling.”Lee1
