An insight into Family Day Care

The key responsibilities of Brighton Family Day Care Approved Service include supporting and monitoring our Educators. New Educators begin a probationary period of 6 months, with weekly support visits from Brighton Family Day Care Nominated Supervisors. These visits ensure compliance of National Laws and Regulations, scheme policies and procedures within environments, also allowing extra support to assist you into your family day care journey. Once Educators successfully complete their probationary period, they will undertake a Registration process with BFDC Nominated Supervisors.

As a Business Owner, you are required to have your own ABN and Public Liability Insurance as well as setting up your own environment with resources. Within ratio, our Educators can provide care for up to 7 children under the age of 12. 4 children aged 4years and under, and 3 school aged children. Please note, Educators own children are included in numbers.

Our Educators decide their own hourly rate and can charge up to $9.90 per child, per hour. It is the Educators decision to provide a transportation service.
