Are you looking to work in an environment with like-minded professionals who are committed to making a difference in children’s lives and work for an organisation that will support you to succeed?
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 like you!
From our centre directors to teachers and 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.
As a teacher at Goodstart Kambah you’ll inspire a love of learning in children and foster their development through purposeful, intentional teaching practices that are delivered with creativity and energy. You will build meaningful relationships with families, so each child has a strong sense of belonging that supports them to thrive. Your love of teaching will be reflected in how you mentor and guide educational practices in your room, and in your work with the broader centre leadership team to develop, review, and implement high-quality early learning programs, to ensure you’re achieving optimal outcomes for children.
Goodstart Kambah is located a short stroll away from Lake Tuggeranong and a local park. The Kambah professional centre is nearby and offers an array of community services including a doctor’s surgery and dental clinic. We are privileged to have beautiful views of the Brindabella Mountains from our Preschool room.
We cater for children aged from six weeks to five years. Families and educators at our centre come from a diverse range of cultural backgrounds, and we celebrate the learning opportunities this offers.
Our educators have been with the centre for an extended time period, and rotate rooms each year to continue developing their skills across different age ranges. We have team members from Aboriginal, Sri-Lankan, Lebanese, Polish, Indian, Italian, and Australian backgrounds.
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.
