MANAGEMENT AND EDUCATORS

STAFFING

Maroubra Junction Before and After School and Vacation Care Centre operates with a minimum staffing ratio of 1 educator to 15 children (on excursions the ratio ranges from 1:8 to 1:10 depending on the type of excursion and the ages of the children). Experienced and/or qualified educators are employed to provide quality care for our children. 


Our educators come from a variety of professional backgrounds, bringing many skills to their role in the centre. All educators have a valid Working with Children Check under NSW law and continue ongoing training to keep up with current industry knowledge and regulations. 


Our team enjoy engaging with families, however when busy with activities, may not always have time to have detailed discussions with families. It may be necessary for you to make an appointment in order to discuss an issue, or call management during the middle of the day when the children are in school. 


Please note that any abusive or inappropriate behaviour displayed by families towards the educator or children is not acceptable. No parent or caregiver is permitted to approach any other child at the centre but his or her own. Educators will request that you stop immediately and leave the premises.
