Your Family Day Care - educator trainingNorthern Rivers Children's Services



Northern Rivers Children's Services believes in the provision of professional development opportunities, for all team mem-
bers. Up to date training has been shown to increase the quality of services provided, promote a professional attitude, and
motivate change to compliment the growth of our organisation.

Educators can view our annual training programme provided by NRCS for Lismore and Tweed in the Educator Log in section.

Some of the sessions on the annual ongoing training schedule are offered to the parents and guardians who use our services.
Parents who use our service can access more information on availability of sessions by phoning or emailing their closest Coordination Unit or asking their FDC Educator to book for them.

Throughout the year an ‘Initial training schedule’ is implemented for new educators who are joining our team. Each of the Initial
training workshops must be completed by new educators unless they are eligible for ‘recognition of prior learning’ through
tertiary training.

Furthering our commitment to Professional Development Educators are assisted by the Directors to complete their Certificate lll in Early Childhood Education and Care  and many of  our Educators continue on to complete their Diploma of Early childhood Education and Care.
