Discover a meaningful career. Big Roles in Little Lives

At Affinity Education, we want our people to love the work they do!

We are proud to share our passion for exceptional early childhood education and care with more than 3000 educators and teachers across more than 150 centres. But our family is still growing!

There are thousands of families and children that need passionate people in early education to help them learn and grow. We are sharing the endless opportunities available within the early education and care sector through the Big Roles in Little Lives initiative, in partnership with The Early Learning and Care Council of Australia (ELACCA) and other early childhood education and care providers.

Why do our people love working in early education? Because they know the vital role they play in shaping and developing the futures of young children. The first five years of a child’s life are rich with brain development and learning – in fact, a child’s brain builds more than one million new connections every second! So, since you started reading this, a child would have developed approximately 70 million new neural connections.



Working in early childhood education and care is more than just a job. It’s a rewarding, secure career the offers endless opportunities for growth. It’s a job with security and satisfaction, a job that engages your head and your heart. And, with opportunities to earn while you learn, from a Certificate to a Bachelor’s degree, a career in early childhood education is a career that grows with you.
