A bit about the role

As a Senior Educator at Goodstart Centre, your responsibilities include leading and mentoring your room team to develop and deliver high quality and inclusive play based educational programs aligning with the Early Years Learning Framework and National Quality Standards.   Working alongside our friendly and supportive Centre Leadership Team you observe, review and continuously improve the educational programs on offer to children ensuring the best outcomes.

Ok, so what do you need?

  • A strong knowledge of the EYLF and NQS is a very good start (notice the pun?!)
  • Share our passion for being child led, with your approach to education
  • Planning and implementing some seriously awesome, seriously high-quality educational programs
  • Working across a variety of shifts – we’ll always do our best to accommodate your preferences!
  • You’ll have to hold a Diploma in Early Childhood (or an ACECQA approved equivalent), because that’s super important.

Here are a few things about us that you might not know:

  • We’re the biggest and most trusted provider of early education in Australia.
  • We’re not for profit, which means it’s about the children and about you.
  • Our Enterprise Agreement means better pay for you, wellbeing days, mental and physical health support and loads more benefits than you can poke a stick at!
  • We open from 7:00am – 6:00pm so we can make your hours work for you.
  • We’ve been here for over 10 years. We’re basically a household name.
  • We’re completely Aussie owned and operated!
  • We care for over 71,000 children and employ over 15,0000 staff, so we know a thing or two!

And one more thing:

We’re an equal opportunity employer that is proud of our inclusive and diverse work environment. We know that Goodstarters from diverse cultures, backgrounds and experiences strengthen our teams and help us grow. We’re also deeply committed to Reconciliation and creating an environment where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People feel a strong sense of belonging and connection.

Safety is our priority and we will take any action necessary to ensure that all children can feel safe and be safe, and are safeguarded from abuse, neglect and harm.
