Overview

The Business of Child Care addresses the managerial and operational aspects of working in Child Care. The management of an early childhood education and care service is challenging for educators who assume the role of manager. The role includes a wide range of responsibilities such as workplace health and safety, human resource management, strategic planning, financial and resource management, and sustainability. Importantly, it also includes your compliance with legislative requirements such as the regulations for early childhood education and care services, which also now include compliance with the National Quality Standards. This edition has been written to support training and delivery of the Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care.
