Earn While you Learn

How good would it be to earn money with a fully supported home business while your home looking after your own children anyway?  

You might be a stay at home mum who knows its a juggling act to return to work and have adequate and affordable child care to make returning to work a reasonable financial option.

You could be a grandparent looking after one or more grandchildren and wouldn't they love the company of other children while you earn a little extra income for yourself.  

You might be a homeschool parent who would really like your children to spend some time in other children's homes particularly during school holiday times or who would like to offer other children before and after school or holiday care to make some extra money while the children socialise.

You might be a local family in a popular tourist area that would like to supplement your income by offering visiting families peak period child care options during those busy months.

You could be a migrant or refugee family that wants to build a home business where jobs are hard to get to create an income while offering family, friends or people of the same or similar cultural ethnicity a child care option with like minded values.

Did you know there are actually more than one million children being looked after informally in the Australian community? Its time their carers had the option and support to turn what they are doing out of necessity or generosity into a small business that supplements their income.  

It's time that these carers had training pathways to give them the option of becoming a qualified and registered Family Day Care Educator that is well resourced and supported.

And it's time that these one million children and their carers had access to quality early learning resources to reduce the risk of disadvantage when these children start school.

Clann understands that "It takes a village to raise a child" and Clann is working to re-village our society.

A New Home Business Idea

What we have imagined with Clann is to have a Clann Family Carer in every community and every street where there is a need for convenient and flexible childcare. It's like the Airbnb of childcare.

People can become a Family Carer where they meet mandatory vetting criteria and complete a 6 week safety and induction program, where 5 out of 8 units can be completed online.

A Clann Family Carer can then care for up to 3 children inclusive of their own. Families can be assured that all the home safety and personal checks are done prior to them being able to publish a profile on the Clann Platform.

Many Family Carers will be happy to remain as a Family Carer. But all will have the option of access training pathways to complete Certificate III or Diploma level in early childhood education and care.

Once qualified a Clann Family Carer has a lifestyle choice of continuing their business with Clann as a Family Day Care Educator registered with one of our affiliated Approved Services; OR seeking employment with another childcare sector employer.
