I have been at Active Exolorers Melville for 7 years from when it first opened and I started out as a provisionally registered teacher then moved my way up to head teacher and have been centre manager for the past 6 years. As centre manager, I really believe in distributed leadership and feel that everyone has a strength to bring to the team and that they can help support and build the teams knowledge in their area of passion/strength!

This is a fabulous chance to experience a different centre, learn and also share value with like minded teachers that will develop your professional practice...

What we're seeking:

  • A qualified and certified ECE teacher – we are open to all levels of ECE registration
  • Thorough knowledge and experience working with Reggio Emilia / Project Approach

If you would like to explore this opportunity in a more informal process, we would love to just have a chat and you show you around our centre. I offer an open mind and welcome all new ideas. I am a supportive mentor and love seeing teachers grow and develop.
