Early Childhood Teacher for 1 year in 2023 | Bilingual Preschool 

The Preschool offers a bi-lingual (English and German) education program which is based on an immersion approach. The pedagogical ideas are based on elements of best practice from around the world. Many practices are taken from German early childhood curricula but the program is mainly based on the Early Years Learning Framework for Australia (EYLF) “Belonging, Being & Becoming”. 

We are seeking an early childhood educator who is:

  • passionate about education
  • self-motivated
  • able to work effectively within a team of experienced and committed teachers with high expectations and 
  • has strong work ethics and the ability to adapt and learn.

Applicants must have:

  • Right to work in Australia (Australian working permit)
  • ACECQA approved qualifications for Early Childhood 
  • excellent communication skills
  • be open to international educational frameworks and pedagogical concepts and 
  • willing to contribute to the school’s future development.

Candidate will need to hold ACECQA approved teaching qualifications for early childhood education (ECT or Diploma), must be legally permitted to work in Australia, have a valid Working with Children check and high proficiency in English and German.

About our program

We recognise children as being protagonists and central to the development of the program and the importance of relationships that children develop with each other and with staff as well as between the centre and families. References are also made to the educational project of Reggio Emilia in Northern Italy and much of the program explores practices used there. These include documenting the children’s learning and using this documentation to drive and develop the program forward, recognising the contribution that the environment makes to children’s learning and the importance of the child both as an individual and group learner.
