It’s been a busy start to the year and that seems set to continue here at FDSee. We’ve been listening to the best Family Day Care Services in Australia, taking their ideas and making FDSee better and better.
In the last few months alone we have added a whole range of new Educator and Service Reports, we have enhanced our reminders services, added a full suite of email functions, and fully integrated all Educator communication in our Service and Educator Communication Record. We’ve added a new Vacancy Report and we are working on a brand new system that will change the way you manage your Service and your Educators.
You may not know, but unlike most other software out there, we only do Family Day Care, and just like you we know what it means to run a service day to day.

Why are so many Award Winning Services using FDSee?
FDSee was recently called ‘a game changer’ for Australian Family Day Care Services, and its proving to be just that. Saving time, increasing quality and efficiency, and enhancing and demonstrating compliance. We have all types of FDC services on board in every state and territory in Australia – across the range from Government, to Council, Community run to Private, and from 7 Educators up to more than 300.
But don’t just take our word for it. Of the six award
winning Services in the latest Family Day Care Australia Excellence in Family
Day Care Awards, five are users of FDSee. Three of the National Finalists,
along with both the Emerging Star Award winner and the Perpetual Star Award
winner are enjoying the value FDSee brings Australian FDC Services. If you are
wondering why, why not join them along with many other award winning and
Exceeding Rated Services.
What is FDSee?

office and out on Educator’s visits, we provide the complete Family Day Care
Service coordination solution, with significant benefits across the board. (It
is not a financial system, and is typically used in parallel with systems like
Harmony or Hubworks.)

customisable based on your processes

addition, many aspects of FDSee can assist with compliance with Education and
Care Services National Law and Regulations, specifically Regulations
We offer a Free Trial and Demo (via Zoom)
We know Family Day Care Services are usually time poor, and
taking on something new is always a challenge. So, we offer Zoom based
information sessions to services – its much easier to show and tell than just
try to tell you about it.
We also offer a completely free trial of the full system,
full support and we also recommend talking to some of our existing users to let
them tell you just how much FDSee can transform your Service!
As one of our users said last year “The FDSee Demo was
the best 2 hours I spent this year.”
Rest assured with FDSee there are no contracts, credit cards
or anything to sign, you just get to try our program and if you like it (which
we know you will) you just carry on. Should you not, you just stop, simple as
Just drop us a line or give us a call if you have any questions, and/or if you are interested we can arrange a demo for you, or if you like you can start with a free trial right away – the choice is yours.
How would you retrieve all records of your communication with an Educator if asked by the Department? With FDSee, you just click and its listed, or you can search for a category or keyword. No searching through old notebooks or filing cabinets, its right there.
Over time you record all interactions with the Educator to build a full picture of their history with you. It can easily help identify trends in issues of non-compliance, or assist in distribution of key information to staff. This is Family Day Care coordinated.
You can also access your full Educator Register or Working With Children Check Register with one click?
We don’t need to blow our own trumpet.
Our users do it for us, just listen…
“Now we’re using it, I don’t know how we managed without it”
“The perfect tool to manage compliance and record keeping”
“It’s saving me around 30-40 minutes per Educator visit”
“Very impressed, and it’s so user friendly”
“Such a time saver when it comes to paper work”
“We love it!”
Are you up to date with the new fact sheet from ACECQA on record keeping in Family Day Care? FDSee covers all the bases for your Service, enabling compliance and making you more efficient.

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
