Becoming a Family Day Care Educator

If you are interested in children and want to earn a healthy income from home, then family day care may be the career choice for you. Flamingo Family Day Care works in partnership with educators and will guide you through setting up and provide you with ongoing training and support. 

Your home-based business offers tax advantages and the ability to spend time with your own children.  Income levels are adjusted to your qualifications and work your own hours. As with any small business there are some start up costs which may include any home maintenance or changes and registration costs. You will also be required to obtain a minimum of a Certificate III in Children’s Services.

Ask yourself these questions:

  • Do I enjoy interacting with children and value learning through play?
  • Do we have a warm family life that would give children the feeling they are welcome, secure and cared for?
  • Am I willing to complete a Certificate III in Children’s Services, Apply First Aid (Senior First Aid) and participate in ongoing training to improve my skills?
  • Can I work collaboratively with families and the Flamingo Family Day Care Coordination Unit?
  • Am I willing to undertake written programs and assessment of children as well as documentation to meet small business requirements?
  • Is my indoor and outdoor space clean, tidy, safe and suitable to accommodate child care in my home?
  • Do I have access to transportation to attend play groups and network with other educators?
  • Do I have enough financial resources to cover start-up costs (e.g. age appropriate toys, equipment, car seats and home improvements) and meet financial commitments until children commence care and in the event of other fluctuations in my income?
  • Is my own health and the health of my family good?
  • Am I and my family willing to undertake Working with Children Checks and Criminal History Checks?
  • Will my family support the changes needed to provide a child care service in our family home?

 

If after carefully considering these questions and talking those over with your family and you decide that you would enjoy and benefit from the experience of providing education and care for children in your own home, then you can begin the application to become a Flamingo Family Day Care Educator.
