Family day care educators provide education and care for up to seven children (no more than four children under school age) in their home. With the freedom to set their hours, family day care educators can decide how much they earn and create a schedule that works for their family.
Wanslea provides resources and guidance to ensure you feel safe, supported and prepared for your role. We provide:
Being self-employed means that you can choose your working hours, giving you control over your schedule and allowing you to be there for the moments that matter most to you and your family. You can take on as many or as few clients as you like to customise your working hours. You can also choose to offer care to families outside of regular work hours, overnight, on weekends and public holidays.
Being a family day care educator provides you with a unique opportunity to earn an income while still being available to care for your own children, making it easier to balance work and home life. With new friends to be made, your children will benefit from family day care too.
A perk of being the boss is getting to choose how much you earn. As a family day care educator, you can select your own rates and operate as a Sole Trader for tax purposes.
As a family day care educator, you have the pleasure of guiding children through important learning years that will impact their future. With lots of time spent one-on-one with the children you care for, you have the opportunity to play a significant and critical role in their development.
As a family day care educator, you’ll be positively impacting the lives of the families with which you work. By giving families time back in their day, you’re making it possible for them to look after their health and wellbeing, provide for their families and contribute to their community.
