Extra info for Family Day Care: International Perspectives on Policy, Practice and Quality
Training and qualifications Good quality childcare requires training, but what kind of qualification is suitable for family day care providers? This was another difficult issue for the Working Group. Should providers have the same training as childcare centre workers, who work with the under threes? Or should they be trained to the same level as kindergarten teachers, or possibly that of a health visitor? The different forms of child-related training are quite separate (just as the branches of government responsible for the different types of provisions are separate), with each requiring a different level of education.
Thought was therefore given to support structures. There were no established family day care providers to learn from and no association to help. Where there were childcare centres, staff could potentially help home-based care providers. However, it was acknowledged that childcare workers might consider they were in competition with the providers of family day care. Family day care could be seen as a threat, since if local authorities supported this new form of childcare they might withdraw support from centres and close them down.
Exchanging and sharing experiences is useful in learning about the difficulties and achievements of each type of provision. On the one hand, centre staff have much professional knowledge and experience to offer, while on the other, family day care providers represent a different perspective and so can contribute to achieving more flexibility in centre-based services. It would help to establish and develop family day care if providers were able to support one another and become organized as a group with some influence.
