Vacancy reference #: 1HAH7C

We are a small family-owned centre that provides flexible work arrangements, professional development opportunities and support for beginning teachers.

When our centre director took over 17 years ago, she wanted a nurturing, safe and stimulating home where her own children could grow and learn together. Our unique mixed-age environment, small group size and excellent ratios foster children’s learning and development within a warm, welcoming setting that promotes positive outcomes for all families.

We are looking for someone who loves the outdoors and who values respectful relationships, creativity and risky play. The right person for our team may not necessarily be the most experienced but will be able to show initiative, be open to ongoing learning and have a sense of humour. Our friendly and supportive team contains a wealth of knowledge, skills and experience, including a strong male perspective.

The position is for a minimum of 20 hours per week between the hours of 8.30am–3.30pm. Rosters are flexible, chocolate and coffee (from a real café) are provided periodically and all meetings, professional development and certification fees are paid for. Free childcare if applicable.
