So before you set out to finding one, here\'s what you need to consider. First the child care provider should have the necessary qualification required by the Australian Government. This includes having undergone aged care courses online, Child Care Courses or Cert 3 in individual support and attained cert 3 in community services has done at least one of aged care courses, an additional diploma of counselling or Diploma of Community Services is a huge plus.
After verification of and certification, take note of your child\'s care giver personality. This can be crucial; you need not a high tempered individual who will instill fear on your child. She should be able to create rapport and bond with the child.
With high qualification and an outstanding personality, you have managed the basics. Next check their experiences. How long have they been working? With whom? Where? And what do the past employers say? Reference is always the deal breaker!
Now to get one, there are several avenues and ways. First being referrals from family and friends. A decent care giver is worth a mention and you may get enough options that you won\'t need other avenues.
You can also decide to share a care giver. This mostly applies if you have noted a family that is willing to share. But before going into it, consider the total number of children she will handle, the ages of the other children she is handling, where the care will be; at your house or the other family and also when do you need her. He should also have taken Childcare courses online or Cert 3 childcare. Make sure all these are caught in your selection.
The third option is getting one from registered bureaus. Here you only need to state your needs and you get paired with a best fit. Though not a necessity for childcare, a Diploma of business makes one a better option.
Once you get one, a job description, salary, benefits and any other information must be laid out and agreed upon before any work commences. Good Luck!
