Becoming A Family Day Care Educator
Convenience In Working From Home
Many people who decide to become home-based family day care educators are already working in the early childhood education sector, often at a center. For many, the shift to home-based care is greatly received. It means they have the freedom to develop a flexible working schedule, and not have to deal with a daily commute. They also have the flexibility to develop their learning content and engagement activities, that comply with the National Quality Framework.
There are so many benefits to running a family day care service in your own home. From flexible hours to professional development opportunities, the role is what you make it.
