Careers at Child’s Play Early Learning Centres

A Role in Childcare

Working in childcare is one of the most rewarding careers that someone can choose. As a childcare educator, you are able to inspire, encourage and support the early development of young children.

The challenges of being a childcare educator can also be some of the most gratifying experiences. It is more than just care and supervision. As an early childhood educator, you will teach fundamental skills and form strong bonds with families and the community. Working with children at Child’s Play ELC is about creating lasting memories and imparting life lessons through fun and play.
