Just wondering if anyone on here runs their own FDC??
What days and hours do you operate?
How long you been operating?
I'm thinking of going down this track next year so just looking for advice.
I'm a single Mum and my DS will be off to primary school next yr. I was thinking I'd start off doing 3 days something like 8am to 5pm.
My biggest worry is having to move to a bigger place as in a duplex not suitable for a FDC, so that would mean I'd have to pay more rent. I'm just surviving on the $$ I get from Centrelink now and that's not getting to save much.
I also really don't want to buy a bigger car so could do school drop offs or pick ups as I don't have that money but would I find it annoying having to either do before and after school care for my DS or seeing if I can rely on parents of my son's friends could help me.... I don't think I'd feel comfortable putting DS on a bus for his 1st year of school either.
So any suggestions or tips you can give me??

I'm not a child care educator, so I can't really give advice about setting up business. However, it doesn't sound like you have the money to invest in establishing a family day care.
Have you considered becoming a private nanny for a family until you can afford to set up?
