Our Roles & Responsibilities
At KIDS we believe in low documentation demands and our administration team will complete many of the tasks so as educators can spend their time with the children and their own families.
Our highly trained KIDS administration Team will assist educators with all aspects of family day care and the required documentation such as routine outings, educator assistant approvals and enrolment, some advertising, in-home displays, interviews and liaising with families on a regular basis, as well as providing necessary software training to help educators engage with our resources.
Enrolments, all CCS fee administration and all fee invoicing/collection will be the responsibility of our management team. Income will then be remitted via EFT to the educators. This aims to avoid educator-family conflict in regards to bad debts and reduce educator work-load.
