Emily, Townsville.

In home care gives me peace of mind knowing that my daughter is cared for when I’m on night or weekend shifts.

Vanessa, Ingham.

Living rurally, we don’t have traditional childcare available. In home care gives my children access to personalised early learning, in the comfort of my own home.

Karlie, Brisbane.

More people need to know about home-based childcare! It really is the best environment for children to develop and the support from our Educator and Enhance is unparalleled.

David, Rockhampton.

In home care has been a blessing for my family. My daughter has disabilities and Enhance In Home Child Care has allowed her to learn and grow at her own pace, with her devoted Educator.

Providing in home care to children in regional and rural communities is truly a gift. I love that I can have an impact on the lives of these children with the help from Enhance.

Hanna, Toowoomba

I absolutely love that I can support children with disabilities and increase their chance of living life to the fullest. I look forward to working with Enhance for many years to come, supporting children who have lower chances in life due to developmental and medical issues.

I enjoy working for IHC as it gives me flexibility to work around my other interests, including caring for my own family and looking after my grandbabies!
