An exciting opportunity for a Director with vision to take the lead in Waurn Ponds

Jenny’s ELC is an early childhood education and care (ECEC) provider who has been able to achieve something that many hope for but few attain – they have created a collection of services which feels like a family. 


With 17 years of experience creating services which have become interwoven with the fabric of the Victorian regional communities they serve, the team at Jenny’s ELC, at all levels, truly are leaders in the ECEC sector. The Jenny’s ELC name is synonymous with a family business that is focused on excellence in care and education, community engagement, staff support and career progression.


Having such a strong reputation means that it is rare for leadership opportunities to become available, and when they do, they are highly sought after.


Leaders at Jenny’s ELC are amazing individuals, who are capable of not only ensuring the highest standards of quality and care, but also who are capable of providing a positive and supportive environment for the wider team and of promoting both personal and professional development.


While children who attend Jenny’s ELC grow and develop into confident and capable individuals, so do the educators who nurture and guide them. Under strong leadership, educators in the Jenny’s ELC team feel confident, safe and valued. Collectively, the seven existing leaders in the network have over 150 years of experience in ECEC. 


The senior leadership team have all worked in the sector, some as teachers, others as Directors, and truly know not only what it is that makes teams work, but also have the lived experience of managing some of the complexities, joys, and moments of wonder which come up each and every day. 


Waurn Ponds – a window of opportunity


Thanks to some growth in the Jenny’s ELC network, an opportunity has become available to lead a 156-place service in the Geelong suburb of Waurn Ponds, just ten minutes from the centre of the Geelong CBD, and 20 minutes from the picturesque Surf Coast communities of Anglesea and Bells Beach. 


As the Centre Director of Jenny’s ELC Waurn Ponds, the right candidate will be able to share their expertise with not only those in their immediate team, but also with the passionate and committed team across all services. 


A key element of the role will be maintaining a collaborative and positive workplace culture while also empowering and inspiring team members to be the best educators they can be.


The contentment of families, and the care and education of children are top priorities for the service, along with ensuring that the team remains cohesive and connected, not only to one another, but to the broader Jenny’s family. 


In return, the new leader of Waurn Ponds will benefit from a highly competitive and above award wage, flexible working arrangements, ongoing personal and professional development opportunities, and the genuine support from a team of highly experienced senior leaders, dedicated to seeing their leaders thrive. 


For those leaders with young children of their own there are generous discounts on care at Jenny’s ELC services. All employees also enjoy paid birthday leave, and a Christmas closure period to relax and unwind, ready for a new year. 


Far more than being just a new job, opening the door to working with Jenny’s ELC is the chance to seize an opportunity to be a part of something bigger.
