Question for SA Child care workers Reg the EYLF

I am a Family day carer trying to get on top of the new EYLF and all the associated paperwork . I have a Diploma (from the Uk in 1996) so am ''trained'' and very experienced but I am still finding it a LOT for one person to cope with on top of being a sole parent (husband works away all year) for 4 daughters .
So I am just wondering how it is working in the Long day care setting ? I am wondering if they have really thought through this ''One size fits all system'' ?
Do the team leaders/room leaders do all the planning and the childcare workers do the observations ? Or is one person doing everything for one room/one age group ?

OP, I'm NSW and LDC. I have found the transition easy and gradual. I have a lot of organisational support. I don't see the EYLF at all as a one size fits all system but rather a - this is how what I/we do links to the framework.
I am very happy to give more specific assistance. What planning and documentation are you using? How are you currently documenting children's learning? I can be more specific if I know what you are currently doing and what you are trying to achieve.
Also, if you are on FB, like a page called April's Angels EYLF Help For Educators. She is FDC and posts daily with lots of examples, questions and information.
Other help can be found here. Particularly read newsletters 8, 9, and 10.
