We are looking for an experienced Director with a completed teaching qualification in Early Childhood Education, proven leadership skills and strong pedagogical practice.
We want you to be as excited about early childhood education and as committed to achieving positive outcomes as we are. We also want someone who can provide equal support to our Preschool and OOSH services.
Bilambil Community Preschool & OOSH operates five days a week on the grounds of Bilambil Public School. We have been operating at our current location since 1991 and have developed a strong partnership with the school. We are blessed with a peaceful rural setting with a small parcel of rainforest right on our doorstep, which we utilise within our program.
We are a unique service, offering the community preschool experience for 3-5 year olds, as well as Before and After School Care and Vacation Care to preschool and school-aged children. Last year we completed extensions to include an extra playroom and upgrade many of our existing facilities. We are licensed for up to 50 preschool children and 70 OOSH children.
The position is full time as non-contact director. You will be responsible for the day to day operation of the centre, including both the preschool and OOSH services. You will be supported in your role by a Preschool Coordinator, an OOSH Coordinator and a Finance Manager. Bilambil Community Preschool & OOSH belongs to the Northern Rivers Preschool Alliance as well as the Tweed Valley Preschool Collective, which will give you the opportunity to liaise and gain support from other directors in the area.
The team of educators and administration staff at Bilambil are a family where everyone has a voice which is heard and acknowledged. We believe that all staff bring their own strengths and knowledge which is highly valued. This role will see you being part of a community preschool and OOSH which supports the local communities’ families and children.
