About the role
The Educational leader is empowered with the day to day management of the educational activities in the centre, and for the strategic direction of the educational component of our service offering. For AppleBerries, this falls into 5 broad categories:
Our Current Families. The Ed Leader is the “face” of our educational program. Your job is to surprise and delight our families with our educational outcomes. You are there to provide advice to parents as required, and to provide feedback on their child’s progress (along with their educators). Nothing is too difficult or a bother when interacting with your parents. They are your guests, and you treat them with the same respect you would any guest in your own house.
Our Prospective Families. This is critical to our ongoing success. You have the ability to showcase your educational programs, educator team, and your expertise in the eyes of prospective families. After a prospective parent tours the centre, they cannot wait to enroll their child, you are that skilled at highlighting why their child NEEDS to attend AppleBerries.
Our Children. Of course the reason you are involved in early childhood education is for the children. You are their advocate, their voice, and will move heaven and earth to ensure they have every opportunity to grow and develop to their full potential.
Our Team. You are the leader of a skilled group of professionals. You empower them to make decisions on their own, ensure they learn from their mistakes, and you are humble enough to know that you do not have all the answers. The smartest leaders surround themselves with people that are smarter than them, and then create the environment where those staff can be the best version of themselves. That is how you manage your team.
Our Centre. You know your way around the sector. You understand the EYLF and help set up your educational experiences to exceed the NQF. You are an administrative expert and have experience in portals such as StoryPark or equivalent.
