“We want every child to have the opportunity to grow into a curious, capable, caring and contributing global citizen, beginning with an empowered childhood.”


We are looking for a new Centre Director for our beautifully designed Professor Lynn Corcoran Early Learning Centre: FROEBEL Parkville.


FROEBEL Parkville has 100 places for children from 6 months to 5 years of age and is located at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research (WEHI) in the Parkville biomedical precinct, predominantly offering early education and care services to the employees of WEHI and Melbourne Health. Our educational program focuses on immersive language learning (second language: German) as well as inquiry-based learning, e.g. by implementing the Little Scientists program. Frequent excursions within the local community are also an integral part of our curriculum.


The service has been rated ‘Exceeding National Quality Standard‘ in 2019 and the team recently won the Little Scientists Early STEM Award as State Winner for Victoria. The centre achieved a Commendation in the 2020 Learning Environments Australasia – Victoria Chapter Awards in the category “New Construction / New Individual Facility Over $8m”.


This role is ideal for you if you have a minimum of 1 year experience in a Centre Director role or Assistant Director role of a larger service and are highly motivated, knowledgeable, diligent, progressive, business-savvy. If you also have an engaging personality, an ownership mindset, can-do-spirit and a sense of delight about your work as a leader in early childhood education, then please introduce yourself to us and share your story!


Please note that German language skills are not required for this position as the centre’s main language is English.


We offer you

  • the opportunity to join a growing, value-driven not-for-profit provider striving for excellence in early childhood education
  • a very attractive remuneration and benefits package
  • freedom to flourish in your role and to give the service your own signature whilst having ongoing support from our management team located at our Sydney head office
  • a collaborative network between the 4 Centre Directors based in Melbourne and Sydney, including regular Directors Meetings (requiring occasional travel to Sydney)
  • work with a fantastic team of 33 committed and driven early learning professionals
  • generous professional development and training opportunities, including with our parent organisation in Germany
  • an employee wellbeing program with regular initiatives (e.g. free flu-shots, fruit baskets) and an employee assistance program (access to free counselling)
  • reduced fees for your own child/ren enrolled with FROEBEL (subject to availability)
  • free onsite parking
