Educator - Children Services

Date: 15 Sep 2023

Location: Central Coast, AU

Company: YMCA NSW

  • Inspire and influence young hearts and minds.
  • Create a safe learning space outside the classroom
  • Unique role with flexible hours and working arrangements, to help your work-life balance


We are looking for a committed educator to support children at our OSHC services at Avoca Beach and the Central Coast region


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.

Childcare Services

Our Children Services Team are 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 dedicated to the safety and development of young children. Every day, the team facilitates and runs various valuable programs and activities that include sports, 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.
