Centre Manager

We love our Centre Managers! They live and breathe the Affinity Values in order to guide and support the educators and families of their centre. Above all, they inspire and motivate their team each and every day.


Working as an Centre Manager with Affinity Education

It takes a special person to become an Affinity Certified Centre Manager. And when you meet one, you’ll understand why. Our centre managers have unique roles, and no one prepares them for success like Affinity Education Group. Your day-to-day role will vary from warmly welcoming families, advocating for children, and guiding your team’s professional growth. With Affinity’s systems, training, and support in Quality and Education, you’ll be set up to manage daily business operations, ensure our centres Meet and Exceed National Quality Standards, and achieve incredible job satisfaction.

The early education and care sector has traditionally used the term Centre Director to describe the manager of a centre.
At Affinity Education, we consider these people to be our future business leaders. Our Centre Managers have been identified - often from within the centre team - as having true potential to grow in their career. We provide support, operating systems, processes, management skills and training to set them up for success. Our Centre Managers play a vital role in the success and reputation of our centres among their families and among their community.
