Joining our Team...
We love our team of motivated, reflective practitioners - and they love the work they do with children.
Peace of Mind aims to attract and recruit like minded professionals who love what they do and who want to be part of a central team. We anticipate working with individuals who are committed to ongoing learning, have drive and warmth - and who are prepared to operate at the highest quality level.
The scheme offers opportunities for networking, attending professional development and practice-partnership visits - to support you in being the best educator you can be. We recognise that many educators choose FDC as a way to have ownership over practice and values for children - we also recognise a supportive team can enhance your own professional worth. We strive for a balance between autonomy and collaboration.
We aim to make the recruitment process as convenient as possible whilst ensuring that everything is in place to make your business rewarding and successful.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org whether you are already working in FDC/childcare and wish to enquire about transferring to our team, or if you are new to early years education and care and are interested in getting started. You can also call our office to speak to a team member on 3888 5558 for an information pack or to answer questions.
Peace of Mind educators are key contributors to our Yarning Circles, attending in person at various locations or even via zoom. Yarning Circles are hosted around once per month, and are a great opportunity for educators to network and engage in informal professional conversation. It can also be a huge boost just to network with people who know exactly where you are coming from.
Many professional development opportunities are offered by Peace Of Mind, which may include:
- Scheme Hosted Conferences - held twice within each year, at a nice venue with wonderful experts to hear from and a nice lunch thrown in
- Mid Year 1/2 day PD - outsourced and offered as needed
- In-House First Aid Courses
-Shared links to online courses, sessions and other information
- Private Facebook page for educators to share ideas and questions
