Great Beginnings Kariong has an opportunity for an Early Childhood Teacher to join our team on a maternity leave cover contract until July 2020. G8 Education strives to deliver meaningful programs that shape our future leaders (our children!) with innovative and creative teaching practices that encourage children to learn through play and active discovery. Our services offer comprehensive early education programs with a strong play-based curriculum.
As a valued Teacher, you will be supported by the Bachelor qualified Centre Manager, two additional Teachers at the centre and G8 Education’s dedicated Early Learning & Education Leadership Team who will support and encourage you in daily activities and guide you through your career development, so recent graduates also encouraged to apply. Your commitment to teaching and learning will be nurtured within a culture that encourages professional and personal development.
At G8 Education we understand that learning begins from birth; more development occurs in the human brain between birth to 5 years than at any other time in the life span. So, we continually strive to achieve best practice in early childhood education and care from birth to 5 years. This begins with recruiting, training and retaining dedicated educators and teachers and supporting them to continue their own professional learning, which leads to positive learning outcomes for children.
Great Beginnings Kariong is a service where everyone belongs and is welcomed as we celebrate being part of this crucial time in the lives of young children. We sit on over 2 acres of land and are lucky enough to share our space with our goats, rabbits, chickens and some lovely vegetable gardens. The children are involved in tending the garden, growing fresh produce and learning about our climate through an awareness of living sustainably.
