ELTHAM College has been educating young women and men for the past 43 years. The College was conceived in 1974 as a new concept in independent, coeducational schooling. It was founded by a dynamic group of community members who were seeking schooling for their children that would look beyond average educational practice to education that fostered the talents, confidence, initiative and passion for learning in every individual.
Our location in the Nillumbik Shire, northeast of Melbourne, is no accident. Historically, this district has inspired free thought and innovation. For years, artists, writers and intellectuals have been drawn to Nillumbik as a centre for inspiration. The notion of ELTHAM as one of Australia's few truly independent schools was founded within this creative culture.
This is a full-time, fixed term long service leave replacement position commencing Term 1 2019 for an enthusiastic, energetic and innovative teacher to join our team of Early Learning Teachers.
Our Early Learning Centre provides a creative, safe and nurturing environment that enhances each child's curiosity and natural desire to learn. This inspirational atmosphere celebrates the importance of play and encourages children to discover, question, create and to investigate possibilities about themselves and their world.
Our curriculum highlights all learning areas, including early language skills and emerging literacy. The children participate in a range of specialist sessions that include Library, Music, Creative Movement and Art. Nature based education is a key component of the ELC learning experience and supports the commitment to sustainable education principles.
