Information for Educators
Join the SPCCC team
SPCCC has been an active part of the Stuart Park community for more than 35 years, thanks mostly to our passionate, caring and professional team of educators. Our team live and breathe SPCCC’s core values of connection, communication, care and compassion, guidance, and inclusiveness.
We are always interested in hearing from educators who believe they would be a great fit for SPCCC. We encourage you to read more about our centre’s core values, get to know our team and committee, and submit your details online.
Benefits for SPCCC employees
We invest in our staff, because we know that satisfied educators deliver the best education, care and community outcomes. As a staff member at SPCCC, you will have access to:
- A staff incentive program. Under the program, you’ll be paid 20% above award wages, receive five weeks annual leave and an extra day off on your birthday, take part in paid professional development opportunities and receive mentoring and support from our director
- Reduced fees if your children attend SPCCC
- A formalised annual performance review, which is an opportunity to reflect on your professional development needs and set individual goals (which we call performance indicators) for the year. If you achieve your indicators, you’ll be entitled to an annual bonus payment in December.
Our staff culture is guided by our core values. At SPCCC, we aim to make our staff feel valued, respected and included in our community.
We take the time to share your professional achievements and milestones, whether that’s finishing a course or celebrating a work anniversary.
We give our educators the freedom to develop relationships with the children they teach, their families and the broader community.
We value our team’s opinions, expertise and skills, which is why we ask for their input into SPCCC’s policies and Quality Improvement Plan.
Here are some of the resources that guide SPCCC’s teaching and learning activities:
- Get up and Grow is a series of resources supplied by the Government to promote healthy eating and physical activity in early childhood education
- Early Childhood Australia
- The Early Child Australia Code of Ethics is a framework for reflection on the ethical responsibilities of early childhood professionals.
