Early Childhood Teacher - Mooroopna Kindergarten

Save The Children

Save the Children's long-standing Mooroopna Kindergarten 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.

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've been working with families and communities in Victoria as a trusted support for children for nearly 70 years. More information on our work in Victoria is available here.

Where you come in

In this full time, permanent position based in Mooroopna, you'll work with the Mooroopna Kindergarten team to develop, implement, and evaluate a high quality, developmentally and culturally appropriate play and learning experiences for children. As part of our Northern Victoria team, you'll report to our Team Leader, Early Childhood Education.

You will make an impact by:

  • Delivering a high-quality educational program for children attending the Mooroopna Kindergarten, consistent with the National Quality Framework and Early Years Learning Frameworks
  • Supporting the Educators in the delivery of a 3 and 4-year-old kindergarten program
  • Developing and maintaining respectful, supportive, collaborative, and responsive relationships with staff, children, and families
  • Actively supporting every child to participate in the program, promoting their agency, choices and influence

Does this sound like you?

You have experience in early childhood programs, a 'toolkit' of strategies, and the ability to think on your feet which allows you to find solutions to complex situations. Your infectious enthusiasm for your job will see you actively seeking out families in need of support, and you build rapport and relationships easily with children and adults from diverse cultural and socio-economic backgrounds, particularly Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families. You consider yourself a team player, you love partnerships and collaboration, and have an 'all-hands-on-deck' attitude.

This role requires:

  • An approved Early Childhood Teaching Qualification as approved by ACECQA (essential) and current VIT registration
  • Knowledge and/or experience in the development, implementation and evaluation of a high quality, developmentally appropriate education and care program
  • Knowledge and/or experience in the application of approved learning frameworks, in particular the Early Years Learning Framework
  • Highly developed communication and interpersonal skills

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:

  • VECTEA award salary with regular increases, plus full salary packaging benefits
  • DET financial incentives attached to position for applicants relocating to the area
  • Internal employment and development opportunities
  • Friendly and flexible work environment
  • Child friendly work environment
