Recruiting for diversity at St Nicholas Early Education
Cory, an educator at St Nicholas Early Education Lochinvar, says one of the things he loves most about working at St Nick’s is that the service employs educators from a range of different backgrounds.
According to the Early Years Learning Framework (2009), “Educators [must be] responsive to all children’s strengths, abilities and interests. They [must] value and build on children’s strengths, skills and knowledge to ensure their motivation and engagement in learning.”
St Nicholas Early Education believes that, in order to cater to each child’s individual needs, it is important to have a diverse team of educators, each with their own unique strengths, abilities and backgrounds.
“It gives the children a quality education in lots of different areas,” Cory says of the approach.
