About the Role

Goodstart has a new opening for a passionate Early Childhood Teacher in our Kindy room, who can build and sustain strong relationships with children, parents, and the local community. You will be responsible for planning innovative and engaging child initiated curriculums using the Early Years Learning Framework and Queensland Kindergarten Guidelines, incorporating both indoor and outdoor environments, sustainability, and local excursions.

At Goodstart Toowoomba Bridge Street, all children are treated as individuals and are encouraged to build their self-esteem and sense of belonging in a caring and nurturing environment where children are central to everything we do. We believe young children learn so much by imagining and doing so we work the children’s individual needs and interests into the program; giving them the chance to explore the world around them through play and experience.
Outside, we have a large outdoor space with lots of shade, sandpits, a fort and vege patch. There are also many natural elements which encourage the children’s understanding of nature, sustainability and their broader environment.

Parent participation and clear open communication is central to our program development. We recognise the importance of parent participation and involvement in the room curriculums and actively welcome parents to be a part of everyday centre life. Our dedicated educators welcome input from families by creating a welcoming and open home away from home environment, encouraging parents to share in their child’s learning.
