About Us

Children’s Ground is working to create an environment where families realise their aspirations for the next generation of children to be free from trauma and suffering, enjoy equity and safety, be able to grow into adulthood happy and healthy, and have agency over their social, cultural, political and economic life.

About the Job and a Typical Day

Working alongside our experienced Arrernte educationalists and governance committee and with a focus on community empowerment, our Early Years Educators are responsible for the design and implementation of an innovative and integrated approach to learning and wellbeing. Our Educators are committed to early years learning that privileges First Nations culture with the best of Western teachings. Each day is a little different, but Educators meet at the hub and will prepare the vehicles and resources for a day of learning out on country. Some sessions you may also work with members of the Health Promotion team and offer integrated learning to children. You will enjoy morning/afternoon tea and lunch that is prepared by the Nutrition team for the session and children.
