We offer our staff members a 75% discount on gap fees if their children are enrolled at our service. We value all our staff and see the importance in making childcare affordable, as we know this is a significant cost to household budgets.
Why our employees love working for Imagine Childcare
Imagine Childcare is such a great company to work for. They really care about their employees, ensuring you are provided with the training and support to develop and progress in your career.
Imagine has their own training company. Educators are encouraged and supported to upskill and really grow in their role and progress through the company. All training with Imagine is free for our Educators too.
We also offer school-based traineeships for Years 10, 11 and 12. Once training is completed, you have the opportunity to work as an Educator in one of our amazing services. There are so many opportunities for growth and development. For example, you might choose to study your Diploma with Imagine, and progress through to a Group Leader, Educational Leader, or even an Assistant Director role.
I have absolutely loved working for Imagine Childcare for the past 6 years and I haven’t looked back. The amount of support that is given is immense. Imagine Childcare encourages and supports you to achieve your potential and succeed in your role by providing continuous professional development and training opportunities. I love Imagine Childcare, as they are passionate about providing a fun, positive, and supportive environment, not only for our children, but also for our Educators. I’m so thankful to be a part of the Imagine Childcare family, and for who I am and where I am in my professional life right now. I would absolutely recommend anyone who is passionate about the Early Years Sector to take the leap and come and join the Imagine Childcare family.
My experience working at Imagine for the last 7 years, has been a positive and fulfilling one. It has been a challenge in many ways, but also the most rewarding experience of my professional career. The team at Imagine have always supported me with strong managerial direction, accurate situational advice and considered forward planning. They have assisted me to grow into a more professional director with more skills and abilities to confront any situation that comes about in my day to day management of the centre. They are also great supporters of my professional development in all areas of the business, giving me the knowledge base and strength to achieve targeted results in every aspect of a modern childcare education. It is also great working with a team who are there to assist you in any way no matter how small the item seems. Plus the team of Educators I work with daily, show great commitment to delivering professional standards across all benchmarks to the children under their capable care. I look forward to the challenges to come, knowing I have the support of an expert team ready to supply everything needed to make each day a rewarding experience.
As an Early Childhood Teacher, I am so proud of the Kindergarten Program we have here at Imagine Childcare. We have such close ties with local schools and even schools further away where our children will attend for Prep. We visit the schools for Open Days, talk to the Teachers and the Principals, and really find out from them what their expectations are for the children who will be attending after Kindergarten.
Our Kindergarten Classroom Educators are all a big family. We enjoy setting up the rooms and sharing skills, learning, and experiences with each other. It is so wonderful working with people who share your passions and hold the same values.
I began my School Based Traineeship with Imagine Childcare in 2016, when I was in Year 11 at Southport State High School. Once I completed my Traineeship, I was offered a Casual Float position. From then, I very quickly worked my way up from Float to an Assistant in the Junior Kindy 2 Classroom. Through the support and training that Imagine offers, I grew in confidence and am proud to have been in a position to accept the Lead Educator role in the Pre-Kindy Classroom.
I now have eight years of experience at Imagine Childcare & Kindergarten in Southport. Being a part of the supportive Imagine Childcare team has helped make me so confident in my abilities. I am so proud to be a part of a team that welcomes your point of view, and that values pursuing further knowledge in children’s developmental needs, and how we as Educators can support children to give them the very best start in life and their learning journey.
Imagine’s Management Team come from a childcare background, which is a huge benefit as they understand, and are really supportive, of you and your needs. The childcare centre environments are such a benefit too. Imagine has such beautiful childcare centres. The facilities and educational resources are excellent and support you in your role as an Early Childhood Educator.
Another great benefit for staff includes 75% off the weekly gap fee if your children attend an Imagine centre. Our team also enjoys Wellness Wednesdays, with activities, food, and events to support their health and wellbeing. We also have great team bonding events too. Imagine Childcare is such a wonderful place to work. It really will become your second home. On behalf of Imagine, we can’t wait to welcome you to our family!
Hello, my name is Gina. I moved to Australia 17 years ago from Colombia and Imagine Childcare has been my second home for the past seven years. I am very lucky to work at Imagine Childcare with a team of Educators who share my passion to inspire a love for learning in children, and make a difference in their lives. Imagine Childcare was the first centre I went for an interview with. I looked around the centre, and the wonderful people who worked here and I felt so welcome. Imagine has now been my second home for the past seven years and I am so happy.
Imagine is so supportive with training and development and this is an important benefit as an employee. You will grow and learn with the company. They encourage you to upskill and are happy to support you with seminars and webinars and additional training. I have had such an amazing experience here. I feel valued every day at Imagine Childcare. The opportunities I have had here are wonderful. They are so supportive when we need new materials and resources to support our practice. At Imagine Childcare, I ensure you will be happy every day and feel like you are going to your second family. Everyone is so welcoming and amazing. We are a big family.
I would recommend Imagine Childcare to anyone who would like to be a part of a team where you are valued and who will become your second family.
