A family service run by family
First private family day care service in Wyndham
VIP Family Day Care was formed in 2004 by Angela's mother, Gail Sinopoli. At the time, Gail worked as Supervisor for the family day care services of Wyndham City Council. Unfortunately, the Council stopped operating this much needed service.
Gail quickly formed VIP Family Day Care soon after, while still overseas on a short holiday. Gail gathered all the Educators (who were now out of business) from the Wyndham Council - and invited them to join the first private family day care service in Wyndham.
Gail brought in her experience and skills into setting up VIP Family Day Care. She set up similar processes to those set up by Wyndham and Hobsons Bay Councils. Gail was a Supervisor with both Councils for many years, as well as a Social Worker at Footscray Council.
Since then, VIP Family Day Care has helped many families with affordable and flexible care for their children in a nurturing home environment. The service has passed all Government accreditations, and was rated as Exceeding National Quality Standards in the last audit.
The proof is in the numbers: more than 1000 happy families and more than 115 Educators who care for them.
VIP Family Day Care is now one of the largest family day care services in Wyndham, servicing Hoppers Crossing, Tarneit, Truganina, Werribee, Point Cook, Williams Landing, Altona, Melton, Lara and Derrimut.
Under the leadership of Director Angela, Gail’s daughter, the service is set to keep growing - and her aim is to achieve the highest possible accreditation rating, Excellence, in all areas of the quality standards (rare for any child care service).
This dedication and focus to exceptional child-focussed care will benefit every child and Educator who are part of the VIP Family Day Care family.

I wanted to let you know that my kids have been with one of your educators in Werribee for about 3 1/2 years through your kind services. She has been absolutely amazing and has gone out of the way multiple times to help my kids and to make things easier for me as a parent as well.
She feels like a part of the family and I do not have enough good words to say about her as a day care educator and as a person. My kids totally adore her!
- Rachi (Werribee)
In your educators care, my girls have thrived. They have made friends, learned so much, and have confidence in themselves. I have nothing but the highest praise for your educators. Additionally, her facilities are clean, neat, and well maintained. She is organized in her activities and interactions with other carers.
As much as I hate to admit it, she has probably done a better job at their daily care than I could have done in the same position. She and her family have become our friends.
