Full Time – Fixed Term

 

 

 

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 Tamworth South opened its doors in 2005, and has since become an integral part of the Tamworth community, located in a rural / residential area close to local schools and shops as well as main roads and transport routes.

We cater for children aged six weeks to five years across our five rooms (which include two nursery rooms, a toddler room, and two pre-school rooms).

Our professional, dedicated staff all hold a qualification in child-related studies, and nearly all have worked at our service for an extended period of time. We pride ourselves on being a close-knit team, working towards providing the best learning environment for all of the children.

Our play based, stimulating 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 also develop colourful, engaging programs accounting for each child’s individual interests, needs and strengths; and with each step we are ensuring the children are ready to take the big step into schooling.
 
We have a wide variety of families attending our service, and revel in the opportunity to get to know each individual family and cooperate closely with them to get the best outcomes for their children.
Communication is very important to us. We understand how busy our families’ lives are and provide a variety of different communication methods. Our Storypark platform, as well as regular family nights and emailed newsletters, enable us to stay in close contact with parents and families, ensuring open and clear communication.
