Benefits of Becoming a Family Day Care Educator with Windermere

There are many advantages of operating your Family Day Care with us.

1. Enjoy the flexibility of choosing your own hours & program content

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.

2. As a Family Day Care educator, you earn twice as a long day care worker

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.

3. Enjoy the security of operating your Family Day Care under the protection of an accredited service provider

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.

4. Enjoy the benefits of joining the No.1 Family Day Care Provider in South East Victoria

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.
