Become a Family Day Care Educator with Windermere and enjoy the security and support of operating your business under an accredited Family Day Care service.
We are currently looking for qualified early childhood educators who want to start a home-based Family Day Care business in the southeast corridor of Melbourne. This includes Casey, Cardinia, Bayside and Knox areas and as far out as Drouin and Warragul.
There are many advantages of operating your Family Day Care with us.
Through our Early Childhood Education and Care Service you can develop your own educational plan and early learning experiences in line with the National Quality Framework approved learning framework. You work the hours that suit your needs, all from the comfort of your own home.
On average, our quality Educators earn up to $70k each year (with some earning upwards of that) – which equates to double that of a long daycare worker. In addition to earning a great salary, working from home can give you access to tax incentives too.
When you operate your Family Day Care services under the Windermere umbrella you will be kept up to date with all relevant legislation and regulations and given access to all the support and training you might need.
We also manage payments from your families, which means that you as an educator do not have to worry about being paid on time. Instead, you enjoy the freedom of running your own home-based Family Day Care business while concentrating on the nurture of the children in your care.
We've been around for over 150 years and provide a range of early childhood education and development services, not just Family Day Care. This means as a Family Day Care educator you can draw on a range of expertise and resources.
To start your Family Day Care business you need to have a qualification in early childhood. As a minimum, this is a Certificate III in Children’s Services. There is also a range of first aid training that you need to complete before you can start operating your Family Day Care.
Although becoming a Family Day Care educator with us can be very exciting, we know that it is a very big decision for you.
If you are thinking about starting your Family Day Care business the first step is to know if it sounds like the right career for you.
