Career pathway opportunities

We are committed to providing exceptional opportunities for our team members to develop their careers and achieve their full potential. Our people are guided and supported through regular career reviews, development plans and access to mentoring. We also offer ongoing financial support for employees wishing to pursue further studies from Certificate III, Diplomas to University degrees.

State of the art learning environments

At Only About Children, our values are communicated through our environment, so with our purpose built campuses, we aim to engage the children’s senses and invite curiosity and discovery. Our Educators have the opportunity to draw on the latest resources, technology and facilities to deliver exceptional education and care.

Supporting personal development

To support our Trainees as they commence their exciting learning journey, we provide them with access to dedicated Trainee development sessions. The learning sessions complement our Trainee’s standard Certificate III modules and support them in navigating and maintaining a healthy work-study-life balance.

Only About Children had provided me with the opportunity to progress from a traineeship to Diploma and eventually completing my degree in Early Childhood Teaching. The organisation as a whole is very supportive of professional development, providing employees with an abundance of training and resources.
