our investment into
professional development

At our organisation, we prioritise professional development opportunities for our teaching and leadership colleagues. To support this, we have a dedicated Group Curriculum Manager who provides guidance and mentoring to our Centre Manager, Team Leaders, and Teaching colleagues across all areas of learning programs, children’s outcomes, teaching quality, compliance, and more.

Furthermore, we believe in the importance of ongoing professional development for all of our teachers, and as such, we operate under the philosophy that “a rising tide lifts all boats.” Our professional development programs are tailored to mentor each teacher on their individual journey towards meeting the Education Council’s “Standards for the Teaching Profession.”

By investing in our staff in this way, we directly support our “continuous improvement” philosophy, which ensures that our teams are constantly informed, updated, and advised on the latest and most innovative best practices in teaching and learning techniques, styles, and approaches. We then pool our collective knowledge from attended courses, workshops, seminars, and conferences to continue delivering award-winning outcomes for our Children, Colleagues, Communities, and Centres (our core 4C’s).
