Early Childhood Educator

Facilitating fun and engaging learning programs, our Educators are the heart of our centre communities. They are warm, welcoming, and instill a lifelong love of learning in every child.

Our Educators know the value of high quality early learning in a child's first five years. We make it our daily endeavour to ensure each child in their care is empowered to reach their full potential. Passionate about creating fun environments to work, play and learn, our Educators are also part of each family's village. 

Supported by the Affinity Education Team, who offer training and mentoring in early years teaching methods including the Circle of SecurityAbecedarian and Project Investigation approaches to extend children's learning, our Educators become confident experts in early childhood education. 

All Educators working in our centres either hold or are working towards early childhood qualifications. With flexible on-the-job training opportunities that allow you to earn while you learn, the Affinity Learning Academy makes it easy for our people to become an Educator - or to progress to the next step in their career.
