  • We are the largest Early Childhood Education provider nationally!
  • Make a genuine difference in shaping the lives of our children.
  • Great workplace culture, training, and career opportunities!

Our Blackwood Centre is on the lookout for a passionate Senior Educator to join our team!

Here’s a little about us:

As one of the largest social enterprises in Australia, the Goodstart team cares for 73, 000 children from 61,000 families across 644 Centres in all states and territories of Australia.

Our people are our foundation; together we are working to ensure children have the learning, development, and wellbeing outcomes they need, for school and life.

Here are a few things about us that you might not know:

  • We’re the biggest and most trusted provider of early education in Australia.
  • We’re not for profit, which means it’s about the children and about you.
  • Our Enterprise Agreement means better pay for you, wellbeing days, and loads more benefits!
  • We open from 7:00am – 6:00pm so we can make your hours work for you.
  • We’ve been here for over 10 years. We’re basically a household name.
  • We’re completely Aussie owned and operated!
  • We care for over 71,000 children and employ over 15,0000 staff, so we know a thing or two!

What about the role?

  • Build and maintain strong, positive relationships with children and families.
  • Actively contribute to the education program in the room and the Centre team.
  • Support a culture of reflective practice and ongoing continuous improvement.
  • Contribute to a professional and positive work culture.

What’s in it for you?

  • The wage is generous and above award.
  • There are heaps of employee benefits like discounts on health insurance, technology, and travel + more!
  • We offer wellbeing days, extra allowances, and development days for all staff!
  • Plus, you get the benefit of flexible working arrangements - we know work-life balance is super important.
  • You’ll get discounted childcare as well – your children deserve the best!
  • We’ll support your studies because the better you are, the better we are!
  • With so much support from our centre support functions, you won't ever be left out on your own!
  • You get to use your creative genius at work and really love your job!

Ok, so what do you need?

  • A strong knowledge of the Early Years Learning Framework and National Quality Standards
  • Share our passion on being child led, with your approach to their education being centre of mind
  • Planning and implementing some awesome and high-quality educational programs
  • Working across a variety of shifts – we’ll always do our best to accommodate your preferences!
  • You’ll have to hold a Diploma in Early Childhood (or an ACECQA approved equivalent), this is essential.

We are an equal opportunity employer that is proud of our inclusive and diverse work environment. We support and encourage individual growth and strong teams that are made up of many different cultures and backgrounds.  

We are committed to child safety. We believe children have the right to be safe, happy and empowered. Our commitment is underpinned by Article 3 of the United Nations Convection on the Rights of the Child. 

We are deeply committed to reconciliation and creating an environment where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People feel connected and a strong sense of belonging. By weaving Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives through all that we do, we aim to build knowledge and a deeper understanding of our First Nations People and culture for all in our team.
