What is in home child care?

As an approved form of child care that is funded by the Australian government, in home care is designed to support families who face challenging circumstances such as living in a rural area, working non-standard hours, making it difficult to access child care at times that suit your needs or having a serious illness or disability which makes it impractical for them to be cared for outside the home.

This is an ideal option for families who may not be able to make use of traditional child care services. If your family is suitable for in home care, you will be able to choose an in home care service provider in Queensland.

The in home care service provider will match you with a suitable educator to deliver in child care in your own home. The education and care your child receives will be tailored to meet their needs and the circumstances of your child.

All in home care educators are qualified, or working towards a Certificate 3 level qualification. There are many in home care educators who hold a higher qualification such as a diploma or bachelor level degree in early childhood education and care. In home care educators are also required to have a current first aid certificate. This ensures that they will know what to do if an emergency arises.
