Selecting an Educator
The service will attempt to match your care requirements with a suitable Educator. During the enrolment process, parents are encouraged to discuss the needs and interests of their child and ensure you and your child are comfortable with the selected Educator.
Educator fees vary as they are set by the Educator according to their qualifications, experience, environments and other services provided.
Families will receive a copy of their individual Educator's fee policy and payment requirements at the time of interview with the Educator.
To enable a smooth transition into care, parents and children are encouraged to visit the selected Educator prior to commencing in care. This provides the opportunity to become familiar and comfortable in the Educator's care environment.
