    Early Education Educators (Qualified)

    Columba Cottage ELC is an Exceeding rated service that is looking to go above and beyond for children, families and staff. We are on the grounds of St Columba Anglican School and function as a member of the SCAS school community whilst operating within our own context.

    Already an “above ratio” service, we are redesigning our approach to health and wellbeing and improving our staff-to-child ratios to ensure we are able to spend quality moments with the children in our care. We are also improving our staffing model to ensure maximum “off the floor time” to develop programs and refine pedagogical practice, and taking action to promote cultural connections, child wellbeing and prevent harm.

    These new positions are an excellent opportunity for flexible and creative early education qualified people to join our team and grow their careers.

    We’re looking for Educators who are:

    • Strong in their knowledge of children’s development and able to respect young children as capable, involved and self-initiated learners.
    • Experienced and have the ability to work with a diverse team of educators.
    • Interested in professional development to grow their early education career and skills.
    • A community-focused person willing to ensure positive relationships and interactions with our early education community.
    • Excellent communicators.
    • Strong in their knowledge and understanding of the NQF – NQS, Regulations, and Learning Frameworks.
    • Creative and flexible whilst being professional.
    • Understanding of the importance of being an integral part of the school and the local community.

    seeking Educators who understand, adhere to, and promote The National Principles for Child Safe Organisations and Child Safe Standards.

    Join our team and be part of a new journey…

    • Hours are permanent part-time or full-time.
    • The shift structure will allow you to have a strong presence at the service working directly with children and provides time to be “off the floor” to develop your program and professional practice.
    • Above Children’s Services Award rates that increase with experience and responsibility.
    • Additional Management Committee Granted Leave over the Christmas/New Year service closure.
    • A supportive administrative team who assists Columba Cottage teams and operations.
