Playing is not only a child's right; it has also proven to have significantly positive effects on early childhood development. Our play-centred program supports young children to develop their social skills, independence and in turn their capacity to learn. We need you to give these children an experience of quality early childhood education, to develop their appetite for learning and help enable a smooth transition into school.
We're ambitious, creative and outspoken. We stand up for children's rights. We want all children to be educated, healthy and live a life free from violence. We run programs in Australia and overseas and, if there's a disaster - like an earthquake, drought or conflict - we are there on the ground.
In this part-time, max-term position (10 hours per week, during school term time until June 2020), you will co-ordinate the planning, implementation and review of culturally appropriate developmental play and learning experiences for children. You will provide support and information to parents on developmental issues and make appropriate referrals to other health, education and welfare agencies. Based in Wagga Wagga, you will be part of our Murrumbidgee Early Childhood Care and Development team and report to our Team Leader.
… You have experience in early childhood programs, a 'toolkit' of strategies and the ability to think on your feet. Your infectious enthusiasm for your job will see you actively seeking out families in need of support. You consider yourself a team player; you love partnerships, collaboration and have an 'all-hands-on-deck' attitude.
It's the feeling of knowing that your work is contributing to making the world a better place for children and working with others who feel the same.
In addition to a connection to social causes, you will have access to:
