Family Day Care Services : Did you know?
With FDSee you can send emails to Educators by Group, by Coordinator assignment or Service wide. Each message is then recorded in the Educator’s individual Communication Record – along with every other interaction you have with them in FDSee.
You can then create an Educator specific or Service wide Record of Communication Report, summarising all interactions with your Educators, including; Visit Reports, Safety Audits, Requests for Care, Notes, Practice Audits, Documentation Reminders and Service Emails.
This coupled with our one click generation of Educator Registers, Staff Registers and Vacancy Reports gives you the full picture for your Service.
WHY IS RECORD KEEPING IMPORTANT?
Having good record keeping practices in place will help services to maintain ongoing compliance with the National Law and National Regulations and support delivery of high quality education and care for the children attending your service.
WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR RECORD KEEPING?
Approved providers and family day care educators are responsible for compliance with record keeping requirements in accordance with the Education and Care Services National Law. However, other staff such as family day care co-ordinators and nominated supervisors are often responsible for overseeing record keeping practices in family day care services and for ensuring day-to-day
compliance with record keeping requirements. It is important that all staff maintain a high standard for record keeping.
WHAT ARE THE RESPONSIBILITIES?
Approved providers and family day care educators are responsible for ensuring that records are:
- up-to-date and include all the information required
- made available to authorised officers of a regulatory authority and parents on request
- kept in a secure place and treated confidentially
