For Educators

Become an Educator

Edu­ca­tors earn an income by pro­vid­ing care in their own homes for small groups of chil­dren and are sup­port­ed by the Coor­di­na­tion Unit. The Coor­di­na­tion Unit assists fam­i­lies and Edu­ca­tors with the place­ment of chil­dren, pro­vides train­ing and resources to Edu­ca­tors, and infor­ma­tion to fam­i­lies who use the service.

Alice Springs Fam­i­ly Day Care is always seek­ing inter­est from peo­ple who are cre­ative, ener­getic and want to be part of a pro­fes­sion­al child­care team. Pre-ser­vice train­ing is pro­vid­ed, along with ongo­ing pro­fes­sion­al devel­op­ment and support.

If you have a desire to run your own busi­ness from home and are seek­ing a per­son­al and pro­fes­sion­al chal­lenge, this could be the career choice for you.

We require Edu­ca­tors who can pro­vide either full – time care, part-time care, shift work, evenings and week­ends. Those inter­est­ed will need the fol­low­ing prerequisites:


  • Matu­ri­ty and life expe­ri­ence are essen­tial attrib­ut­es, there­fore it is essen­tial that appli­cants be at least 21 years. 
  • You, and all per­sons 18 years and over resid­ing in your home, must pass a Nation­al Crim­i­nal His­to­ry Check and an Ochre Card Check
  • You will need a First Aid Cer­tifi­cate — HLTAID004 
  • A mobile phone is essential.
  • Your out­door play area will need to be secure­ly fenced.
  • Your home will need to under­go a home safe­ty inspection. 
  • We will pro­vide you with pre-ser­vice train­ing (Edu­ca­tor Induction).
  • You will be required to pur­chase pub­lic lia­bil­i­ty insurance. 
  • You will need to have some smoke alarms, a fire extin­guish­er, and a first aid kit in your home. 

    All these expens­es are tax-deductible, and the cost will be recouped quite quick­ly once you start caring.
