Educator - Family Day Care

Brisbane QLD, Australia

Hello. Thank you for taking the first step to becoming a Family Day Care Educator.


Family Day Care is an early childhood service offering families affordable, personalised care by a qualified educator in an approved, safe and nurturing, home-based environment.

Churches of Christ Care is a non-profit approved service provider of Family Day Care since 1979. We have managed family day care for more than 40 years and we’re the longest-serving provider in Queensland. We recognise and support the importance of play- based learning with a child’s education and care tailored to maximise their learning.

Our educators provide experiences that are designed to meet a child’s individual needs and interests. Indoor and outdoor play experiences are age appropriate with children self-selecting activities such as storytelling, craft, painting, play-dough, sand and water play, climbing, swings or bike riding. Our educators may care for up to four children under school age, and no more than three school-aged children.

To be an approved home-based educator, you must hold:

  • a positive notice blue card
  • a current First Aid, CPR and Asthma and Anaphylaxis Management qualification
  • current public liability insurance (through Family Day Care Australia)
  • hold or be working toward a minimum Certificate 3 in Early Childhood Education and Care
  • national police check.

We can help you with any of the above items to make sure you meet our educator standards. Our educators will also need:

  • previous experience with children
  • appropriate understanding of children’s needs and development
  • positive behaviour guidance skills
  • ability to provide experiences that are stimulating and age appropriate for children’s growth
  • sound knowledge of first aid, nutrition, health, hygiene and safety
  • ability to communicate with children and adults.
