Employment Type:  Full-Time

Are you a Senior Educator who is passionate about helping children to have the best possible start in life? Do you want to work for an organisation that offers genuine career opportunities to help you succeed?

We’re Goodstart

At Goodstart, we’re all about laying the foundation for better lives through amazing early learning experiences, and we know that we can’t do that without great people!

From our centre directors to centre teams, we work together to make a real difference for children in those crucial early years.

Safety, health and wellbeing are more than just words to us, they are a personal commitment and a promise we make to our children, our families and each other every day.

We’re Goodstart – a not-for-profit with a vision for Australia’s children to have the best possible start in life.  

About Our Centre

 
Our centre has provided care and education for the children of our small community for more 20 years.
At Goodstart Estella, we are fortunate to have a small centre – with rooms from Nursery to Preschool - which allows for close relationships between our children and educators, as well as the families and our local community.

Being a small early learning centre means that siblings are able to spend time together during the day and children are able to engage in play with other children of varying ages. Having the opportunity to engage in mixed age grouping during outdoor play allows the children to practice skills such as responsibility, risk management and empathy.
 

  • Key Educator Approach
  • Community Engagements
  • The centre is licenced for 50 children each day, from Nursery to Preschool.
  • Friendly long standing team of educators
  • All of our rooms are set up in line with an Early Years Learning Framework, with sensory and play based learning opportunities.
  • Beautiful outdoor play area with a balance of natural and manmade elements and play surfaces.
