As part of the new Affinity Advantages program, Affinity Education has increased the childcare discount available to our people to 50% off the gap payment* as of January 2022.
In announcing the discount, Chief People Officer Linda Carroll said the business was delighted to be able to provide a more generous incentive and support program for employees.
“Our people are the heart and soul of Affinity Education Group,” she said.
“Each day they develop enriching learning programs and nurture the children in their care, instilling in them the skills and curiosity they need to confidently step into the world as lifelong learners. But more than just Educators and Teachers, they also support families in their community, helping them navigate all of the experiences and emotions of early childhood education and care.”
Ms Carroll said the increase in discount had also been motivated by feedback received in the most recent Employee Engagement Survey and changes by the Federal Government.
“As the adage goes, it takes a village to raise a child! As part of our educators’ village, we are committed to supporting our people and their families,” she said.
The response from Affinity Education employees has been warm.
“As a parent with two children attending our service, I can’t thank you enough for this increase,” said Racheal Roehl, Centre Manager of Milestones Early Learning Cooma.
“It will certainly help my family immensely financially and I cannot thank management enough. On behalf of my family and the other educators with children attending our centre, thank you!”
It's part of the Affinity Way to support our people not just with a safe and supportive work environment and opportunities for professional development, but also in their personal life. But supporting our people, we empower them to do what they do best – delivering the best in early education.!
Affinity Education is pleased to provide its people with the Affinity Advantages program – a rich array of employee benefits informed by our people.
With this enhanced benefit, Affinity Education employees can better balance leading fulfilling careers with raising healthy families.
