Our Educators

All our educators are skilled, experienced, highly trained and are either studying or hold formal qualifications, current first aid certificate, anaphylaxis and asthma management training, working with children check, child protection training, insurance, and their home meets the National Quality Framework safety standards.

The personal qualities of educators reflect community, diversity-of families, values and cultures, empathy, warmth, compassion, flexibility, professionalism and maturity. A commitment to nurturing and caring for children is a given.

My name is Donna and I am a local Midge Point resident. I am a mother, grandmother and I hold my Certificate III in Children's Services.

I worked previously in a childcare centre and felt that I could better serve my local community in a similar capacity. I have lived in the area for the past 21 years and have seen many changes in that time. I love looking after children and am fortunate now to be in a job that is also my passion.

Living at Midge Point I am able offer a safe, secure and caring environment for the children to develop without the noise and distraction of local traffic and community disturbances as we are set in a bush land environment on 7½ acres with a plethora of native wildlife at our doorstep. It is not uncommon to see kangaroos and wallabies grazing or eagles soaring whilst the children are at play in our shaded outdoor play areas.

Arts and crafts are a big part of what I am able to offer along with a comprehensive record of their child's endeavours, which is always available for parents to take home and show off to their family and friends.

The school bus will stop right at our driveway so there is no hassle for parents to go out of their way to drop or collect their children at the bus stop or take that extra time off work to meet them.

Seeing young people grow and develop from infancy is by far the best benefit of being an educator. Being able to contribute and be part of that development is one of the most satisfying and rewarding feelings a person can have.

Vacancies currently available: Monday to Friday spaces available. Please call 49452422 if you are interested in a placement for your child.









Want a home-based career and to make a difference?

As part of our commitment to providing quality care for families, Whitsunday Shire Family Day Care is expanding our local Family Day Care scheme, a network of self-employed educators providing home-based quality child care that provides a familiar, safe and secure learning environment with a maximum of four children (0-5 years) in care.

To do this, we need more Family Day Care Educators.

Initial set up costs are low. Let Whitsunday Shire Family Day Care provide you with the tools to set up your new business:

  • Training
  • Placement of Children from our extensive Wait List
  • Administration
  • Professional child care advice from our highly trained Coordinators and Educational Leaders

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.

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.
