Outback Childcare is a mobile childcare program, sponsored by RICE, whose Educators provide care in the family home for children 0-12 years of age.
The programs goals are to:
- provide a flexible, high quality childcare service suitable to the needs of families in remote areas.
- meet work-related care needs of parents who have no access to existing childcare services.
- assist families in crisis and provide respite.
Each family can access up to 6 weeks of care each year with placements usually up to 12 days.
