We are recruiting Family Day Care Educators…

Limited Time Offer! – $2,000 Incentive

Do you have experience caring for young children? Would you like to work from your own home or an approved venue?

Did you know there are now opportunities to job share with a friend or family member and that you can care for your own children while still earning an income as a FDC Educator?

If you have answered YES to these questions, then please READ ON….

We currently have long waiting lists for children needing home-based childcare in Lismore, Casino, Kyogle, Ballina, Tweed Heads, Pottsville, Murwillumbah, and surrounding areas. We are excited to announce this first-time incentive to help find more educators and assist families requiring care.

As well as the incentive payment, NRFDC will provide ongoing support to all educators contracted, including weekly visits for the first month of operation followed by three weekly visits. Staff are also available to answer questions and give advice at any time. We offer exciting and informative playgroup sessions to our educators and children, including transportation by the scheme bus so educators can meet one another and form connections. We offer ongoing training, support, and resources.
