Hear from our team members

Farrar ELC

“It’s a great environment for both children and staff, it’s positive and a very creative area where everyone can share ideas and learn from others. Senior staff are always willing to teach the younger and newer members how things are run. No questions are ever too silly and everyone’s ideas are taken into consideration even with the younger staff and this is a big reason why I like working at Child Australia – because I am never made to feel small. My ideas matter just as much as everyone else’s.”
Ellie, Educator

Larapinta ELC

“I have learnt more in the last four years working for this wonderful organisation than I have in the other 16 years in my career within the Early Childhood sector. Not only do they provide all the bells and whistles with salaries etc, they also provide continuous support for individuals and their career pathways. This organisation cares. Staff feel valued. There are no ridiculous expectations for staff and their workload. We are not cookie cutter services – we are all unique.”
Renee, Centre Director
