Assistant Director

Goodstart Moree

Full Time – Permanent Position

 

 

 

We are 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.  

 

Our Centre

 

 

  • This role is a full-time position.
  • Opening hours for this centre are 06:30 am-6.30pm.

 

Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Moree is located in the centre of a small rural farming community. Close to the local schools and community facilities as well as shops.

Being part of a farming community enables the children to experience nature first hand and gives us opportunity to foster environmental awareness. This is reflected through our stimulating, nurturing and educational programs.

Our play based curriculum is based on the Early Years’ Learning Framework and our rooms – from Nursery to Kindergarten / Preschool – are all geared with this in mind. We develop engaging programs accounting for each child’s individual interests, needs and strengths, and have a problem solving approach reflected in our programs to encourage higher order thinking and a curiosity for learning.

This is made simpler through our intuitive Storypark platform, which enables us to maintain consistent and clear communications with families. That means we are better placed to support a child in their learning journey, ensure parents have peace of mind, and time stamp the children’s developments, milestones and achievements.
