    Default Family Daycare

    Dd3 and dd4 start FDC this week. Im really nervous. We met their carer today and she seems really lovely, was interested in learning about the girls, their likes/dislikes, personalities, routines etc. The area is not perfect but seems safe and secure, lots of toys, they go on regular outings etc. My thing is I have only ever used daycare centres. They seem more.... regulated? This FDC is through one of the schemes here so I am sure its much the same.

    Are FDC regulated the same as centres? Do they follow the same safety standards etc?

    Yep they would have to follow the national quality framework and whichever state regulations the centres have to follow.

    Hi I am thinking of doing childcare after being a nurse for many years. I am wanting to work in a daycare then to provide Fdc yes I would be subject to the same safety standards.

    Cheers

    Hey SheWarrior! I'm a family day care educator👍

    Yes, we are bound by all the same rules & regulations. We just offer a specialised service with a smaller ratio and still need to follow the Early Years Learning Framework and National Quality Standards. We have yearly safety checks and fortnightly visits from our scheme co-ordinators for support and to monitor that we are doing the right thing. And we go through accreditation just like the centres do too.

    Thanks for your reply! Kids have been goinf for a while now and absolutely love it! The first carer didnt work out but found an amazing one straight away, she is a godsend and the kids adore her (as she does them). Definitely happy with how its turned out.
