KATY – STRATHDICKIE

My name is Katy and I live in the Strathdickie area. I commenced with Whitsunday Shire Family Day Care as an educator in January 2006 and I have been involved in the childcare industry for seventeen years.

I have obtained my Certificate III in Children's Services and my Certificate III in Education Support during this time. I am a married mother of four and have been a local for most of my life. I believe in open and honest communication with my families.

Benefits of being a family day care educator, for me, is working from home and managing my own business and the positive, rewarding individual accomplishments achieved through my drive to enhance children's personal skills and abilities. I enjoy watching the children learn and grow, benefit and acknowledge, create and build confidence, respect and friendships within our open, caring, day care environment.

I offer a welcoming, warm and friendly environment, catering to the needs of children of various ages, skills and requirements as well as a flexible routine aimed to maximise their strengths, build self esteem and provide equal opportunity. My environment is safe, fun and educational and promotes positive, rewarding relationships.

BECOME AN EDUCATOR!

Perhaps you have not been working while you care for your own children? Or you could be looking for a change of direction?

If you enjoy the company of children and want to make a difference in their lives by providing quality care and learning experiences from your own home, then family day care may be the right career choice for you.

Operating a Family Day Care business gives you a unique opportunity to work from home as your own boss, choosing the hours you work, and potentially earning a very good income.

Our coordinators are here to advise you and help you through every step of the process, not just while you are setting up, but also when your business is up and running. An educator must hold an early childhood qualification such as a Certificate III in Children's Services or higher, or be willing to study. It is a requirement that all educators hold or are working towards obtaining a minimum of Certificate III in Children's Services.

We are looking to provide Family Day Care in all areas of the Whitsunday region and we want to talk to you.
