Working in childcare

There are many different types of childcare worker jobs in early childhood education to choose from. Including Early Childhood Educator jobs, Early Childhood Teacher jobs, and Centre Director jobs to mention a few. In Australia, childcare workers are known as educators and you must possess or be working towards a Certificate of Children Services or higher.

Early childhood education

The childcare industry is stable and steadily growing. Based on recent figures from the Australian Bureau of Statistics, around 1,500,000 children below the age of 12 were in childcare. Of which approximately 750 000 kids attended a childcare centre and about 1 million were in some sort of informal care. With more and more parents earning a dual-income, the need for additional childcare centres is evident. And to help fill this gap in the market, childcare jobs are expected to rise.

As the childcare sector continues to expand, there is a general consensus among industry bodies that there is an emerging need to create long-term strategies to attract and employ more qualified childcare workers. This includes more attractive wages and salaries, better flexibility and enhanced support. The number of childcare vacancies is expected to be over 50,000.
