Occasional Care Diaries Purchasing GuideUpdated a year ago

What is the best diary for occasional care?

It will depend on which state or territory you are located in and what programs you run in your service. For educators in Occasional Care services running programs under the EYLF (for early years, preschool, kindergarten (except QLD) the best diary for you is the Weekly Programming and Reflection Diary. For your Outdoor Program, use the Central Outdoor Weekly Programming and Reflection Diary.

To support you in applying and recording sustainable practices, we have the Our Sustainable Year Wall Calendar. The Culturally Responsive Year Calendar has been designed to meet the discussion notes in the 2021 NQF ALF Update. The recent review focused on Approved Learning Frameworks and highlighted changes to strengthen the connection between Learning Frameworks and the National Quality Standard in Indigenous ways of being, knowing, and doing and moving from cultural competence to cultural responsiveness. 

To help you capture and record Individual Observations, our Individual Observations Duplicate Book works in conjunction with the Weekly Programming and Reflection Diary and provides duplicate pages, so your records are filed where they need to be. We also have a My Amazing Year - Portfolio Learning Journal for Children and Daycare Transition to School Booklet to help you capture their progress throughout the year.

If you require a diary that handles the admin and compliance, it would be best to get the Child Care Centre Diary

For Nominated Supervisors, we have the Nominated Supervisor Diary. We also have a diary for the Educational Leader role.
