Family Day Care Australia is excited to announce that our National Engagement Program is back for 2022.
Our Melbourne National Engagement Program will allow delegates to take advantage of joint educator and service sessions, giving teams the chance to come together and share in the benefits of joint professional development workshops unique to the family day care environment.
Joining representatives from FDCA will be Red Nose Australia and Australian Child Care Career Options (ACCCO).
Red Nose Australia will deliver a “Safe sleeping for family day care” workshop, with ACCCO facilitating a presentation on “Child Protection: a family day care focused approach”.
Both workshops will have an emphasis on the role of services and educators, providing valuable insights for all participants and a holistic approach to child safety. This ticks an important box in terms of assisting services and educators to meet both their professional development obligations under Element 7.2.3 of the NQS, and their child safety and child protection obligations under Standard 2.2 and Element 2.2.3.
Attendees will receive a certificate for each workshop in acknowledgement of the learning experience.
Date and time: Saturday 26 March 2022, 10:00am - 4:00pm (registrations open at 9.15am, doors open at 9.30am)
Location: Oaks Melbourne on Market Hotel, 60 Market Street, Melbourne
A copy of the program for the forum can be downloaded here.
Tickets can be purchased by completing the form below. To allow for a diverse range of service and educator delegates, we ask that coordination unit staff attendance is limited to two representatives per service.
Tickets for FDCA Members are available at a heavily subsidised rate of $15, while non-member tickets are available for $75.
Helping our members access premium professional development and learning, while providing opportunities to network with fellow family day care professionals and discuss the issues that matter to you, is an important part of the work that we do as your national peak body. Through the National Engagement Program, we’re proud to continue our investment into this important initiative.
Sign-in will open from 9:15am, doors will open at 9.30am and the forum will commence at 10.00am. Refreshments and lunch will be provided.
