Which level childcare allow me to work creatively with childcare

Post by trish73 » Tue Nov 24, 2020 5:09 pm

Hi, I have my certificate 3 in childcare and then I studied a degree in Fine Arts and I have not worked in a childcare centre for about 4 years. Now in my life I want to get back into childcare and I am considering of progressing to a Masters in Early Childhood that my degree can get me into or studying a diploma level in childcare.
Which is harder to work as a room leader or Early childhood teacher, which has more paperwork? And which one is more creative and would allow me to work and be with the children more?

Alternatively, which level childcare can work creatively with children run art/craft activities to support their wellbeing ?

Hi trish73

If you are looking to maximise your passion and artistic expertise in an early childhood setting, the best option for you is family day care.

Family day care educators can work from home, choose the hours they wish to work and best of all spend the most time with children.

As an educator you will create an educational program using your knowledge, skill set and more - its completely unique to you.
You can follow your own philosophy for example focusing on creativity.
You can educate and care for children aged 0 to 12 years which is perfect to explore the arts, especially with your background. Family day care ratios involve small groups which ensures children receive plenty of love and attention.

The best part is you do not have to study as you hold a certificate 3 and if you do wish to continue studying you have complete flexibility over your work schedule because you are in charge meaning you can study and work at the same time.

Family day care gives you freedom and an opportunity to be with children, teaching and learning with them.
This is an example of the kind of thing an educator with your qualifications and energy can do in the family day care sector:

Thanks for the information, I want to do family day care but I am not allowed to run a business at my home ( landlord rules).
