Become a Family Day Care Educator




Our Family Day Care Scheme is growing and in 2019 we have the capacity to take on new Educators.

If you are seeking a scheme offering a high level of quality and compliance support, educational programming guidance, regular professional learning sessions, customer service support, marketing and assistance with filling vacancies, call us for a confidential discussion. Our new Educator start up fee of $500 (2 x $250 payments) provides you with comprehensive new educator face-to-face training; quality, compliance and safety expertise; business marketing materials and strong guidance and support as you settle into your new business venture.

Our team of three experienced Council Family Day Care specialists provide mentoring and support to every Educator. You will be assigned your own specialist who will guide and support you on your small business journey. This individual support is part of our planned and comprehensive Quality Practice program which ensures you are operating to a high standard and meeting the needs of all children and families. 

You will also have access to training, customer service and marketing specialists within our Council Children's Services unit.

Our Family Day Care Educators enjoy frequent opportunities to connect, share best practice and experience joint incursions with their counterparts. Our specialists facilitate regular face-to-face opportunities for Educators to come together and feel part of a connected team, whilst improving Educators' skills and capacity.

Some of our Educators also enjoy a wonderful spirit of cooperation with their nearby Council Early Education Centre, which we encourage. They enjoy a standing invitation to attend the centre with the children in their care to experience special events and incursions in a larger shared learning environment. 

All of council’s Family Day Care Educators work from their own homes, providing outstanding care and education to small groups of young children. Prospective Educators must be actively working towards or have completed a Certificate III in Children’s Services.

Our Educators operate highly successful small businesses, driven by the strong demand for childcare places across the Shire. They also enjoy the flexibility of choosing their own work days and hours.

This is a great opportunity to apply your early childhood knowledge and start your own small business working from home. Become a small business owner while continuing your passion for working with children and families.
