Early childhood education and care (ECEC) provider Montessori Academy will expand its sponsorship program and open up new possibilities for skilled ECEC professionals to gain permanent residency status in Australia.


Until recently, Montessori Academy has been able to sponsor Early Childhood Teachers (ECT) under the Temporary Skill Shortage visa. 


Effective 25 November 2023, Montessori Academy can also sponsor ECEC professionals who hold a Certificate III or Diploma qualification.


“This isn’t just a chance to work with us; it offers pathways to permanent residency in Australia and professional development with a leading company of early childhood education,” information on the provider’s website notes. 


Montessori Academy described ECEC professionals who hold Certificate III or Diploma qualifications as being essential to the ECEC sector, adding “they are the caring hands and kind hearts that support children’s development during their formative years. By extending our sponsorship program to include these skilled professionals, we are not only expanding our team but also enriching the early childhood education sector in Australia.”


Certificate III or Diploma holders with a minimum of two years experience in ECEC who are interested in exploring visa sponsorship opportunities with Montessori Academy have been invited to connect with the recruitment team here
