Full job description

Role: Teacher – Educational Leader   

Location: Echuca, Victoria

Centre: Goodstart Echuca

Employment Type: Full-time

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? 

We’re 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 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.  

Your Impact  

As a teacher at Goodstart Echuca 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.

About Goodstart Echuca

Goodstart Echuca is a 105 place centre, located on the edge of Echuca in a residential area conveniently close to local industry and commercial areas. Embracing our local heritage, our six rooms have been named after the famous Paddle Steamers that call our section of the Murray River home.

Our happy and friendly educators pride themselves on delivering fun and educational programs that assist the children to grow and develop. They strive to ensure strong relationships are built and flourish during each child's time at the centre to ensure the best possible start for your child.

Inside, all of the rooms - from Nursery to Kindergarten / Preschool - are all set up in line with an Early Years Learning Framework, with sensory and play based learning opportunities. Colourful, stimulating surrounds ensure the children have the chance to grow and develop through sensory, play-based learning.
