In this rewarding work environment, we need you to assist in the delivery of quality early childhood education and promote parent-child interaction. Working casually, you’ll be flexible to work when required, giving you a great work/life balance.

Save the Children is no ordinary not-for-profit.

We’re ambitious, creative and outspoken. We stand up for children’s rights. We want all children to be educated, healthy and live a life free from violence. We’ve been working with families and communities in Queensland as a trusted support for children for nearly 70 years. More information on our work in Queensland is available here.

  • Assisting to develop and deliver early learning programs
  • Working within a team to ensure programs are age and developmentally appropriate
  • Creating a welcoming and safe environment to encourage active participation
  • Growing an understanding of early learning amongst families and sharing your knowledge with community members

Does this sound like you?

You’re passionate about working with young children and parents and making a difference in their lives. Your sensitivity and community knowledge will see you build strong connections with families from varying cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. You’re motivated, eager to learn and not afraid to jump in feet first to help make our programs successful.
