Educator - Children Services

Date: 11 Jul 2024

Location: Cabramatta, AU

Company: YMCA NSW




  • Inspire and influence young hearts and minds
  • Create valuable opportunities outside of the classroom
  • Unique casual role with flexible hours and working arrangements


We are looking for a casual educator to support children at our OSHC services at Cabramatta (Harrington St).



Our Out-of-School-Hours Educators are the sharp minds and friendly faces inspiring and influencing the next generation of young people. Acting as both teacher and role-model to young students from over 60 NSW Schools, they provide engaging, exciting and interactive activities through our Before School, After School and Vacation Care services. As a member of our OSHC family, you’ll be responsible for the safety and wellbeing of developing young minds, while supporting our OSHC Coordinators to ensure  our services stay the very best they can be. You’ll work closely with the children (and their parents), sharing your wisdom, support and passions with them to help them grow. 

This isn’t your typical 9-5 role – and if you bring the dedication, focus and commitment, you’ll enjoy the flexibility of a career in education, where you can build a schedule that works for you. So if you’re excited by the opportunity of a promising career creating meaningful opportunities for young people who need them, you’ll almost certainly learn a thing or two yourself.


About your new role


  • You will provide fun and engaging activities for primary school age children
  • You will help design a calendar of inclusive, exciting, and engaging program activities
  • Reporting to the Coordinators of our OSHC centres, you will be one of over 200 educators who support children across NSW.
  • You will be able to follow our development pathways to learn new skills and build your career


About you


  • Y NSW staff love supporting their communities, and our educators innovate learning everyday
  • Y NSW OSHC Educators are motivated to develop children outside of the classroom
  • Everyone at the Y NSW ensures that we provide supportive service for families
  • Everyone at the Y NSW is committed to safeguarding and hosting safe learning environments 



To be successful in this role, you will have:


  • Experience supervising and interacting with children
  • Ability to follow safeguarding priorities
  • Availability to supervise Before School Care,  After School Care and Vacation Care hours
  • HLTAID004 /HLTAID012 - Current First Aid and CPR
  • Valid Working with Children Check 
  • Police Check (paid for by the Y)



Y work with us?


  • Join a supportive local area network with group training and collaborative projects
  • Room to learn new skills and build career development by gaining access to the Y NSW professional training network
  • Awesome discounts on The Y services and products
  • Flexible hours and arrangements, for a work-life balance that works for you




Childcare Services

Our Children Services Team are the passionate leaders giving developing young minds the opportunity to learn, grow and have fun outside of school. Across 53 schools in NSW, our team of OSHC Educators and Coordinators provide before and after school (and school holiday) care that’s dedicated to the safety and development of young children. Every day, the team facilitate and run a range of valuable programs and activities that include sport, creative arts, cooking – and many more. These roles work closely with children, parents and teachers alike, to provide meaningful opportunities for young people within a healthy, safe and inclusive environment. If you’re a driven, dedicated leader who brings energy and enthusiasm to everything you do, you’ll find the support and flexibility to explore a promising career in childcare or education.
