Child Development Assistant - Adelaide

Save The Children

Save the Children's Play2Learn Program is an outreach early childhood program that goes out into the community and supports families and children to reach their full potential. In this rewarding work environment, we need you to assist in the delivery of quality early childhood education and promote parent-child interaction. Working casually, you'll be flexible to work when required, giving you a great work/life balance.

Save the Children is no ordinary not-for-profit.

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. See here for information on our work across South Australia.

Where you come in:

In this casual position working across North-Western Adelaide, you'll support early childhood development and school readiness skills, and will facilitate improved relationships between parents and children. Working across different sites as part of our mobile service, you'll work in a team to create an environment of trust and respect with families and children. You'll be part of our Play2Learn team and report to our Team Leader.

You will make an impact by:

  • Assisting to develop and deliver early learning programs
  • Working within a team to ensure programs are age and developmentally appropriate
  • Creating a welcoming and safe environment to encourage active participation
  • Growing an understanding of early learning amongst families and sharing your knowledge with community members

Does this sound like you?

You're passionate about working with young children and parents and making a difference in their lives. Your sensitivity and community knowledge will see you build strong connections with families from varying cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. You're motivated, eager to learn and not afraid to jump in feet first to help make our programs successful.

This role requires:

  • Experience working with children 0-5 and families in a group setting
  • DHS Child Related Employment Clearance - essential
  • Responding to Risk of Harm, Abuse and Neglect - Education and Care - essential

Working at Save the Children is more than just a job.

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:

  • Generous casual award rate salary and great work life balance
  • Friendly and flexible work environment
  • Internal deployment and secondment opportunities
  • Opportunities to progress within one of Australia's largest non profits
