Company: Goodstart Early Learning

Teacher – Grovedale – Torquay Road


Goodstart is Australia’s largest early learning provider.  As a not–for–profit social enterprise, we exist purely to improve the lives of Australia’s children and their families. 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.


We’re looking for an enthusiastic Teacher to develop programs and practices that are responsive to our children’s needs and aligned with the Early Years Learning Framework and National Quality Standard.

You will be part of our supportive culture and have access to a qualified mentor to support your professional development and growth.

Our curriculum is developed in line with the Early Years Learning Framework, although we work closely with our parents and families to ensure we nurture the children’s strengths and interests while meeting their individual needs. We use the Storypark platform to keep families informed and it forms a solid foundation for open and clear communication.

Inside, our rooms are set up to deliver a sensory and play-based learning experience. We have a kitchen to satisfy hungry tummies and our links to the community help us deliver a comprehensive program. Throughout the year we have many special days for our families and staff to participate in and we encourage you to add your ideas to participate in our program.
