An opportunity has arisen for casual qualified or non-qualified relieving staff at ACG Strathallan preschool.  Our children enjoy a rich environment where teachers are passionate about interweaving literacy, numeracy, art and music into the curriculum.  We love messy play and have lots of fun in our mud kitchen!  As part of the ACG Strathallan campus, we are treated to the use of the college gymnasium, tennis courts, fields and facilities.  If you have a natural affinity with children and love making mud pies and would like to gain more experience working with children aged from 3 months to 5 years of age this is the position for you!  

We have a team of fully qualified and registered teachers (plus some amazing in–training student teachers) who provide high-quality care and learning experiences for our children.  The ACG Strathallan campus offers a beautiful, natural environment which complements our ethos of instilling a life–long love of learning in our students.  Why commute to the city?

The successful applicant will work successfully within the overall ACG Education philosophy framework.
