What Is A De Facto Relationship?

In Australia a de facto relationship, especially, is when two people live together and behave like a married couple despite not being legally married to one another. These two people can be either opposite or same-sex and can live together on a “genuine domestic basis.”

Child Care Options

What Are My Child Care Options?

No matter how much we’d prefer to keep our children home with us while they’re young, there is a growing need for quality child care. After all, to keep them fed and clothed, being a part of the workforce is essential. If you’re almost ready to return to work and want to be aware of your child care options, then take a look at the variety below. You’re sure to find the options are more flexible than you think.

Home-Based Child Care

Home-based childcare is becoming more and more popular in Australian households. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, in 2017, 22.2 percent of families with children in child care prefer the more informal home-based setting. Home-based care can typically consist of either a nanny, friend, or family member caring for your child or children in a home environment.

For some people, this option is not only affordable but more convenient. If you’re not within proximity to a care facility, home-based care requires less travel which is beneficial for both you and your children.

Family day care, which falls under the informal child care umbrella, is also growing in popularity. Rather than drop your children off at a facility, they can form close relationships and bonds with approved carers and a small group of children. Typically, family day care is located at a carer’s home where they benefit from home comforts. For some families, this option is a preference because children receive beneficial one-on-one time for more extended periods.
