Service Director, Make the Switch!
Working at Big Fat Smile, there’s a lot to smile about. The trust you’ll be given in exchange for your expertise. The freedom you’ll be given as an Educator to use your judgement, adapt learning approaches, and bring creativity and playfulness to a child’s day. The joy you’ll get from doing work you love with team members who are as invested as you. And the beautiful relationships you’ll form with peers, children, and families – through shared experiences that are as rich as they are rewarding.
More than a job, this is an opportunity to make a child’s world a better, brighter place. Get greater enjoyment from your work and make more of a difference in the lives of every child in our child-first organisation.
Big smiles and bigger opportunities
We’re Big Fat Smile. A not-for-profit that plays a pivotal role in the lives of thousands of children and families across Australia. We’re early education enthusiasts, with 40+ community preschools, long day care centres and fun clubs, and a variety of community and inclusion programs. Each one dedicated to giving every child the best start in life. And each well-respected for the work it does.
Due to our size, there are big opportunities for those who want to go further. You’ll find meaningful career paths with lots of promotions across our centres. And because professional learning and growth is at the heart of everything we do, you’ll have the support and knowledge to succeed.
Right now, we’re looking for a Service Director for our Reynolds Street Community Preschool – an ‘Exceeding NQS’ rated service in Goulburn. Our outdoor space includes a water wall, music wall, outdoor kitchen, chalkboard/painting wall, walking beams, a large sandpit area, a vegetable garden, and a stage area where children can role play. It is a very interactive and stimulating environment.
We encourage children to learn a language, with extensions of learning leading to cultural competence. Children expand their knowledge about the variations in languages, and apply these to other literacy tasks, including listening to sounds in words.
A supportive and safe workplace
When the going gets tough (as it sometimes does in this sector), you will find teammates and leaders have your back. There’s a real in-it-together feeling here thanks to a safe and supportive environment, and well-established policies and processes that outline exactly what’s expected and needed in any situation. Everyone’s in it together, making it easier for you to thrive.
We treasure the expertise of our leaders
As a Service Director, you will play a critical role in shaping young minds. You will create happy, healthy relationships between a child and the most important people in their lives. You’ll bring fun, laughter and play to each day, but most importantly, you’ll create magical moments for children to experiment and grow.
