    Default Re: family daycare - questions

    My DS goes to fdc and I couldn't be happier. It's more like a second family and I find my son learns a lot from the older kids. It seems to be highly regulated these days. Some questions for you to ask.

    Are they through a scheme and what is the levy? What is the hourly rate and what are the minimum hours per day?

    What happens if the carer is sick?

    What curriculum do they follow? Do they keep a record of what the kids do each day?

    I think the most important thing though is just to go with your gut feeling. If it feels right it probably is.

    Default family daycare - questions

    I didn't do fdc because it seemed a little scary, however, later a good friend had her LO in fdc, I was actually impressed at how well organised it was.

    They have council standards that they have to comply with like displayed evacuation plans, asthma/allergy plans. That you should be able to see. With visitors she had a sign in/out book but was not actually able to have visitors, so it was only in rare instances like if someone would drop something off, but if someone popped in she'd get them to sign in/out, but say that she was working so they couldn't stay.

    They went to see a few places and went with gut instinct in the end, the child loved the carer, that's always a good indication that all is well.
