ALEX – PROSERPINE

Hi, my name’s Alex and I have been living in Proserpine for more than ten years. My two boys are currently in primary school and ever since they were little, I have been interested in family day care.

Little children need a lot of care, and when mine were small I turned to the Whitsunday Shire Family Day Care scheme for help. I was a bit nervous at first, but I struck gold with my educator and I have been sold on the importance of this service within the community ever since.

Family Day Care provides a warm and nurturing environment where children can make new connections, socially, emotionally and educationally. I am very proud that I can now be a part of that experience for so many little people and their families. I commenced my career as a family day care educator with Whitsunday Shire Family Day Care in July 2014.

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.
