At The Lookout, our educators are highly experienced in working with children and committed to the field of Early Childhood Education and Care. We promote a team culture and all staff members are valued members of the team, with each of their strengths and backgrounds recognised.
We recognise the importance of engaging in continual professional learning and actively encourage our educators to extend their professional knowledge by undertaking further studies in the field of early childhood.
We believe in maintaining high educator to child ratios as it helps to enhance children’s learning and development, as well as providing for their safety and wellbeing. In turn, this helps to create a positive working environment for our educators, with lower stress-levels, and more time to record, document and plan for our children’s learning.
