Assistant Director

Goodstart Moree

Full Time – Permanent Position

We’re Goodstart

At Goodstart, we’re all about laying the foundation for better lives through amazing early learning experiences, and we know that we can’t do that without great people! From our centre directors to centre teams, we work together to make a real difference for children in those crucial early years.

Safety, health and wellbeing are more than just words to us, they are a personal commitment and a promise we make to our children, our families and each other every day.

We’re Goodstart – a not-for-profit with a vision for Australia’s children to have the best possible start in life.  

Our Centre

Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Moree is located in the centre of a small rural farming community. Close to the local schools and community facilities as well as shops.

We are licensed for 71 children each day. Outside, our playground areas are a balance of natural and manmade elements and play surfaces – with sandpits, forts, mud kitchen, construction zone, flower gardens, vege patches with worm farms and compost, a boat and lots of shade. We have carefully designed and planned spaces to encourage a stronger understanding of the environment and sustainability – while giving children the scope to explore, play and let their imaginations roam.

This role is a permanent position – 38 hours a week

Opening hours of this centre are 6:30am-6:30pm
