Alternative Childcare Resources

When you think of resources for managing your childcare centre, you’re probably expecting guidelines on policies & procedures, regulations, and all the boring stuff that you need to do to remain compliant. Whilst it is boring to most, it’s VERY important.

But let’s face it. We’re not going to be able to compete when it comes to this kind of information from Childcare Centre Desktop or DJMIR. So we’re offering different kinds of childcare resources for educators & managers to be able to do their job effectively, whilst minimising stress.

#1: 2023 Early Childhood Calendar

Thinking of ideas for lessons and activities in Preschool, OSHC or Long Daycare can get really hard sometimes. Some weeks you’re on fire. Other times it takes a bit of a nudge to come up with creative ideas. That’s what the Early Childhood Calendar Resource is for.

The Calendar is full of notable dates such as Religious Holidays, Observance Day like Halloween, and Public Holidays to help you keep up-to-date with what’s going on in the world, and plan your lessons accordingly.

If there’s one childcare resource you should pin up in your staff room, it’s this one.

#2: Childcare Wellbeing Resources

It’s no secret that burnout is a BIG problem in Early Childhood. And we get it. You’re constantly outputting to children, your fellow educators and families. So we developed a load of resources for educator wellbeing.

From improving your diet to practising gratitude, our aim is to help you fill up your cup so you can give your absolute best to the children in your care, and your friends & family when you’re at home.

#4: How To Clean Up Family Accounts

Chances are, you got into Early Childhood to spend time teaching and caring for children. Not to do admin. So, as a director or leader, why are you spending so much time managing CCS, enrolments & family accounts?

If you’re spending more than 2-3 hours on these admin tasks, you need this essential resource for childcare centres.

In this guide, you’ll see exactly how to maximise efficiency when it comes to:

Billing Cycles & Structure Invoicing & Debiting Managing Debt Chid Care Subsidy (CCS)
