Rosebud Early Learning is a brand new architecturally designed early childhood education and care service at Rosebud. It offers an atmosphere unlike any other Service.

Are you the kind of leader that supports the notion that all children are capable of extraordinary things?

At Rosebud, we believe the potential for happiness and greatness lies in all of them and will mean different things to different children. They will face challenges and disappointments along the way, but our educators will equip them with the skills to help build their resilience. This will help them bounce back from stress, challenges and adversity and allow them to be brave, curious, adaptable and extend their reach into the exciting world that awaits them.

At our exciting new centre, shoes will be optional, getting dirty will be compulsory and our inclusive and unique learning experiences will instil in children a lifetime love of learning.

Are you highly organised, focused and skilled at managing inventive, innovative and imaginative people? Do you pay attention to detail and have the ability to provide guidance to turn ideas into reality? Are you looking for a position change? If this describes you, we would love to meet you! 

As the Service Director of our new centre, you will have the pleasure of being a part of selecting a new team of creative, enthusiastic, like-minded educators committed to providing enriching, high quality education and care programs that are truly remarkable. 

The person we are looking for will possess highly developed interpersonal relationship building skills, an ability to understand and visualise ideas and concepts and help bring them to fruition, be understanding, have time to listen, and have love for the children and their families. You must be able to demonstrate your commitment to ensuring children have an enriched and inspirational educational experience throughout their early years

Why Rosebud Early Learning?

At Rosebud Early Learning, our focus will be on allowing children to be free, entertain themselves, choose how they play and learn and discover their ‘wildhood’! Our centre’s unique outdoor environment will feature four sand pits, two large bike tracks, a waterpark, a large grassy area, a barnyard full of animals and a Garden World where children can learn how to tend to a variety of herbs and vegetables.
