Early Childcare Educator

Job Type: Part Time
Location: Diamond Creek, Victoria

Required Hours per Week: 31.5 Hours per Week 
Days and Hours Required: Monday, Wednesday, Friday, 7:30am-6pm


We are a close-knit family of 3, along with our friendly dog. Dad works full time as a property consultant and Mum works 2 days a week as a psychologist. As parents, we tend to practice intuitive/gentle parenting and try to maximise opportunities for learning and autonomy in a supported environment. 

We are looking for a Nanny who can help us to support our child in a similar way to our parenting approach 4 (gentle parenting) - someone who she can become comfortable with and enjoy spending time with. We would like someone who has experience working with young children (aged ~16 months) and is warm, considerate, affectionate and open to feedback to help us all to function as a team. An important quality for us is finding someone who has good emotion regulation skills, and is able to stay calm and kind during our child's emotional outbursts, as we feel this is the best way for her to learn to do the same. We also would like someone who can drive, to allow activities to take place during the day.

Role is available in early June.
