    Default Any Family Daycare mums out there who can answer some questions for me??

    I've recently been thinking that I should become a family daycare mum - I am desperatly in need of work but as I only have 2 days a week childcare I am finding it near impossible.

    I've been thinking family day care for awhile now and have decided to finally look into it.

    Some questions??

    Seriously how does your home have to be set up - are their any special requirements - I am in a large 3 bedroom unit with a yard - 6 foot fences etc.

    What sort of cost could I expect to start up - I know I have to get first aid and safety plugs etc

    Do you have to provide everything or do they provide some stuff for you?

    How many children could I have - I have a 20 month old and an almost 5 year old at home with me.

    What is the money like - I seriously have no idea what I could even expect to make.

    A million more questions but I guess this will do for now

    Hi sorry I dont have any FDC advice but you said that you only get 2 days of day care. Is this because you are onlt eligible for 24 hours CCB? If so whe you go back to work if you work more then 15 hrs per week you will go up to 50 hrs CCB.
