Introducing The Educators

The Director of Endeavour Child Care Centre has qualifications, experience and training appropriate to the care of young children.  The overall management and administrative work is the responsibility of the Director in assuring the parents of a quality service.  The Director is available to help, advise or just “be a good listener” on any problem or issue that may be worrying you as a parent.

We have an Educational Leader who leads the development and implementation of Education Programs for all staff.   She mentors, talks with families and works alongside other Early Childhood professionals.

Qualified Educators are trained, experienced and qualified in child care.   They hold a Diploma of Children’s Services (Early Childhood Education and Care).   The majority of the Educators have their Diploma in the Centre.

Fifty percent of the Educators have been here for longer than eight years.

The Food Co-Ordinator provides balanced and nutritious meals for children which promotes good eating habits.   Special dietary needs should be discussed with the cook and Director.

All staff in the Centre hold a current First Aid Certificate, as well as Anaphylaxis and Asthma certificates.    Staff are encouraged to keep abreast of developments in their relevant fields and extend their qualifications as necessary.

The Centre accepts students from Edith Cowan University who are studying for their Bachelor of Social Science (Children’s Studies) and from the TAFE Diploma of Children’s Services.   The Centre also provides work experience for students from local high schools.

All staff hold a current  National Police Clearance, Tuberculosis and health clearance and Working With Children Check.

It is a priority of the staff to be very aware of potential hazards within childcare both for children and themselves.   They adhere to correct lifting procedures and report any potential hazards to administration to be rectified.  All staff have also completed the Food Safe Course which covers the correct handling and storing procedure of all foods that come into the Centre.

All staff are very dedicated to providing a loving and caring atmosphere which fosters a wonderful place to leave your child.
