Family day care educator resignation form

Fill out this form when you resign from a Department for Education family day care (FDC) scheme.

Before you resign

It is important that your scheme office knows what care children will have after you resign. You can do this by compiling a list or noting on the children in care report (available from your coordinator) that each child is either:

  • using care with another FDC educator in same Department for Education FDC scheme
  • using care with another Department for Education FDC scheme
  • using care with another child care service

Business Administration

If children are absent on the day(s) before you finish in FDC, the family will not be eligible for CCS and will be required to pay you full fee.

Returning to family day care

If you choose to return to FDC you are welcome to contact the Business and Customer Support Centre (BCSC) to start the application process. If you were working towards completing a workplan or if you are subject to a current investigation on the day of your resignation, this information will be considered in any new application to become registered again with a FDC scheme.
