Starting an exciting career as a family day care educator begins by selecting and registering with an approved family day care service; you can find the contact details for your local service by clicking here.
The approved service will most likely discuss your interest, suitability and availability in becoming an educator and the processes by which they recruit train and initiate new educators.
Promotion and marketing to families is usually done in partnership between educators and the approved family day care service. Your approved service will usually field enquiries about family day care and will match families with educators; families are often then referred to you for an interview.
You will have regular ongoing contact with your approved service including home visits, training, meetings and workshops to support you in maintaining currency of skills and knowledge and to deliver quality education and care to the children in your service.
