The KPCC Educators / Staff

Our Qualified Staffing Team

KPCC is managed on a day-to-day basis by two non-teaching directors who job share. They both hold a bachelor of Education in Early Childhood Studies. Our team is made up of 16 educators.  We have two other Early Childhood Trained Teachers, Diploma Educators, Child Care Educators / Certificate III Educators and two job share cooks. 

High Staff:Child Ratios

KPCC values high staff:child ratios and the number of qualified educators/teachers as a key aspect in the provision of quality care. The management committee therefore employ above required staff:child ratios and above required numbers of qualified educators/teachers to those outlined in the The Education and Care Services National Regaulations 2011.

Educators Grouping

Our educators work as a team and are all actively involved in the education and care of all the children. However, educators are deployed as primary educators to a particular age group. These educators are responsible for the programming in their group and maintaining observations of the children. They know the little details about each child and each family. The age groups are known as the Koalas, Kangaroos and Possums.

Passion and Dedication

We are fortunate to have team of extremely dedicated, professional people. Their passion and motivation for the best workplace and therefore best centre is easily identified. Each team member brings their personality, hobbies and interests to KPCC. The sense of fun and laughter is infectious.

We have many long term educators/teachers who know every little corner of KPCC. This bring consistency for families, again many of our families are long term as well.

New educators are employed via a thorough selection process, or they have been a TAFE or university student who share our philosophy.

Our educators/teachers are proud to be a key ingredient within the KPCC community.
