The way we work

Our staff roster is designed to provide consistency, which is an important foundation for positive relationships between staff, children and families. While most team members are employed on a part-time basis, there are also a number of full time positions. Educators generally work for five hours per day in the rooms with the children, this is the ‘normal contact time’. This provides time for staff to undertake ‘additional activities’ (planning, training, meetings, projects, etc) outside of the ‘normal contact time’ without interrupting their time with the children. The number of ‘additional activities’ hours depend on the needs of the service and the skills and interests of each team member.

All educators in the service participate in team teaching.
