Become an Educator

Are you passionate about working with children? 

Are you passionate about working with children and want to play a part in shaping their futures while running your own business from home? Why not combine your passion for children with the opportunity to create a rewarding and flexible career as a professional family day care educator.

While several models of employment exist within family day care, in most cases you will enjoy the flexibility of running your own business with the support and guidance of your approved service. You will also develop tailored educational programs for your children based on their individual developmental needs, interests and experiences.

Are you looking for a change from centre based employment?

If you are an early childhood professional working in a centre based environment you may enjoy the freedom and flexibility offered by family day care to shape your career and your learning environment. It’s a unique opportunity to develop your own educational programs based on the needs and interests of individual children, while building long lasting bonds.
