Are you right for the role?
For 15 years, Kiddisafe has supported thousands of children and parents in preparing for school. Pre-school years are the most crucial. Children pick up their learning habits and processes with us that will lead them into their early academic life.
Learning Never Stops
Not only committed to the development of pre-schoolers, we are a strong advocate of Continuous Professional Development for all our team, too.
Consequently, we are a collection of accolades and always look to expand this. Our aim is to have our pre-schoolers surrounded by a team who share the mindset of a learner, so they are eager to impart knowledge between one another for the ultimate benefit of our little ones.
Childcare is complex and requires excellent interpersonal and communication skills, patience and perseverance. Read more about the soft skills required of a childcare practitioner here.
