At Kitiwah Place Early Learning Centre, the selection of staff is of critical importance.

The criteria used to select staff focuses on their formal educational qualifications, experience in working with young children, confidence, maturity, ability to relate to young children, enthusiasm, interactive skills, ability to work as a member of a team and they must also possess a supportive and caring nature. All staff employed in the Centre are fully qualified or trained in accordance with Education & Care Services National Regulations (2011). (Information regarding staff and their qualifications is displayed in the foyer of the centre). Occasionally, students and volunteers participate in the Centre, however they are always supervised by one of our qualified staff members. Students and volunteers do not hold positions of responsibility, so please remember to look for a staff member to leave your child or messages with in the mornings.

In addition, we have a pool of qualified and approved relief staff who are employed to ensure that the child to staff ratio is maintained at all times. All staff, students and volunteers must undergo a criminal check in accordance with The Commission for Children and Young People in order to receive a Suitability Card (‘Blue Card ’) prior to commencing work at the Centre.
