In Home Care Educator

The role of an educator is similar to that of a nanny, but there are some additions to the role.

Just to explain, the Government provides a service to eligible families, this is In Home Care and the carer is an Educator.

The difference between a nanny and an Educator is that just like an Early Childhood Centre, educators are required to work under the same framework and are governed by In-Home Care Standards.

This means for you that you will also be supporting child-led activities to meet quality educational outcomes for children being cared for at home under In-Home Care.
