If you have little children to look after, you can also try being a childminder. These are mothers who look after other people's children, often alongside their own. An advantage is often the flexibility regarding the time spent childminding and the nearness to one's own children.
AVS (Arbeitsvereinigung der Sozialhilfe Kärntens)
This is a care standard for children aged 8 weeks to 15 years old, and depending on the space available and the number of children the childminder has herself, up to 4 children can be looked after for a whole day or up to 6 children for a part of the day. Chldminders have an pedagogical training. The childcare takes place in the childminder's home.
The parents' outlay for individual childcare complies with an agreed scale and currently averages € 2 (including food, effective 3/2010) per agreed hour and child. The association receives support from Carinthia state. From a professional pedagogic point of view at least 60 hours a month should be carried out.
