We are often asked… “How much will I be paid?” It’s a fair question, and it seems a lot of educators are not clear on the answer, or how they can find out.

No matter if you are new to Early Childhood Education or not, the Children’s Services Award (the conditions and pay rates determined by the Government) is confusing for many.

One of the first things to be aware of is that the rate of pay is dependent on both your qualification level AND your experience.

The good news is that the Award sets out the legal minimum you should be paid, and this increases a little each year from 1 July.

Refer to our blog “How much will I be paid?” for more information.

No. While the flexibility and freedom of choice that Talent Now provides lends itself to casuals, it is also a great tool for part-timers to flex up, or to connect staff with centres who may offer more permanent arrangements.

All our educators are rated by the Melbourne centres they work in. This means your hard work can be rewarded by earning you a higher rating, which in turn increases your chance of receiving job offers in the future. 

If a Melbourne childcare centre chooses, they can add you to their favourites, making you a preferred early childhood educator. This means you can get a first look at job offers from that centre in the future. 

Yes! Childcare assistant jobs are an important part of early childcare in Melbourne and are one of many positions Talent Now includes in its network.

An early childhood educator job typically refers to a professional who works with children aged 0 to 5 years, focusing on their developmental needs and learning. A preschool job often involves teaching children in a structured setting, preparing them for primary school.
