Overview

Green Leaves Early Learning Albury

At Green Leaves Early Learning Centres, we take pride in building innovative and sustainable learning environments in our state-of-the-art, purpose-built centres. As a premium service provider, top quality is at the heart of what we do across all of our centres in Australia. 

Our Mentors and ECTs are provided regular opportunities to collaborate with our National Learning Research and Development Partner (NLRDP) – Dr Karen Grubb, through face-to-face and online mentoring; access to weekly articles and examples of practice shared by the services on the Storypark platform; networking with other ECTs across our organisation; and participation in practical professional development opportunities that extend their pedagogical and educational understandings.  

We are seeking ECTs who recognise they are lifelong learners, share practice that aspires to be current, responsive, and transformative, and view themselves as research partners when supporting and mentoring others in our education team.

Our centre boasts 6 creative learning hubs which are purposefully designed with modern sustainable resources. All our hubs are bright and inviting with rich, warm timber resources and innovative educational materials including interactive whiteboards. We cater for a secure learning environment with small, intimate rooms and separated age groups to allow for age-appropriate experiences.

Our centre has on-site parking and is within walking distance of public transport, making commuting to work a breeze. We are also close to the main street with lots of food options for days when you don’t have your lunch!

This is a personally rewarding role where you can impact the lives of many, motivate and inspire fellow educators, children, and their families. We want you to feel valued for your ongoing efforts, commitment, and dedication to your role.
