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?

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.
