Nestled amongst beautiful big gum trees and large, natural outdoor environments, The Young Ones Early Learning provides a truly welcoming and homely feel the moment you arrive.  

We are a small, privately owned and family operated early learning centre and kindergarten located in the heart of Mudgeeraba.


We are looking for an innovative Centre Director to lead, inspire and mentor an already tight knit team of early childhood professionals to continue to flourish.    

The successful applicant must be highly driven, passionate and share the same values that align with our ‘nurturing in nature’ philosophy.  It is important for us that the right applicant is an advocate for providing young children with high quality holistic early education and enriched care, and connecting children with nature.  We offer a certified Forest School/Bush Kindergarten program and view the environment as the third teacher.  The saying, ‘The best classroom and the richest cupboard are roofed only by the sky’, truly resonates with us.  

The right candidate will:

  • Place children at the centre of their work, through deep respect and focusing on the development of the ‘whole child’ – physically, socially, emotionally and spiritually
  • Have excellent working knowledge of EYLF and NQF and the ability to support our team in its implementation
  • Have exceptional communication and organisational skills with the ability to multitask
  • Guide our service in continuing to write and implement our QIP
  • Demonstrate a high proficiency in written English; spelling, grammar and punctuation
  • Have a solution orientated attitude, strong work ethic and the ability to work autonomously
  • Be experienced in rostering to ensure consistency of care
  • Maintain an inclusive, supportive, and educational environment for all children, educators and families
  • Demonstrate exceptional organisational skills and time management skills
  • Have true leadership qualities such as being able to manage, inspire and mentor a room and centre team
  • Be flexible and excited to work on the floor alongside our team when needed
  • Have experience or ambition to learn KidSoft, StoryPark and other administrative software
  • Value the importance of critically reflecting on their practices in order to see growth within themselves
  • Hold a great passion from connecting children and educators with nature and outdoor learning

Qualifications and Skills:

  • Must have experience as a Centre Director
  • Must hold an Advanced Diploma and/or Bachelor in Early Childhood Education (ACECQA approved)
  • Have extensive knowledge of the Early Years Learning Framework, NQF, QKLG and National Regulations
  • Hold current First Aid, CPR and Anaphylaxis
  • Must have a current valid Blue Card
  • Interest in Creative Arts (desirable)


It will take a very special person to be successful in joining and leading our Young Ones team.  We are very proud of the community we live in and are highly committed to building meaningful relationships with our families, children and close community.  It is imperative to us that the successful candidate understands the importance of building strong relationships with families as they play the key role in their child’s early learning and development.  We believe building meaningful relationships with children underpins all aspects of their development and strive to find others who view development in a holistic manner.


Please note that only successful applicants will be contacted.  Please do not apply if you do not meet the minimum qualifications and experience.


If you feel you are the right candidate for this position, please send your cover letter and CV to Heather – [email protected]
