Description We have been running a very successful 3 year old group for 18 years and the new role will be very important for our overall program. Initially operating as a replacement for a teacher who will be on leave for Term 4 2021, the role will expand to co-teach the expanding 3yo program in 2022 and will include some involvement in the 4yo program. We are seeking an enthusiastic and committed Early Childhood Teacher to work primarily with our existing 3yo group. Initially the role will cover 7.5 contact hours with our 3yo group and 2.5 non-contact hours for a minimum of 10 hours total, but there is some flexibility around these numbers with a possibility of working up to 20 hours per week by teaching in to our 4yo program. The exact number and breakdown of hours will depend an agreement between the applicant and the kindergarten committee. Due to the COVID situation our three year old group is not running at the moment but this situation may change; in the interim the working hours will be completed with the 4yo program.
Qualifications As we are located in an area with a large proportion of families who are Culturally and Linguistically Diverse, our program is centred around delivering early education that respects the cultural and linguistic practices of our children and their families, and you must be able to demonstrate how your teaching will contribute to these goals.
