Looking For Care

It is important that you take the time to select the right childcare for your child.

Before you visit a service think about things that are important to you and your family and make note of some questions you would like to ask the Educator.

These may include;
  • How will I know what activities my child has done that day?
  • What is the sleeping routine like?
  • How will my child’s heritage be incorporated in the education program?
  • How does the service reflect the community in which it is located?
Have a look at the physical set-up of the whole service and consider whether your child will be happy and safe. Consider whether the service is equipped to meet your child’s particular needs, including disability or cultural requirements.

The Family Day Care Educator will become a very important person in your child’s life. Developing a strong partnership built on mutual respect will help ensure your child gets the best possible care.
