Trainee Cert III Educator

A traineeship is a great starting point for a rewarding career with a for purpose organisation.

Earn while you learn, start your career today! SDN pays above award rates.

Join the SDN village and make a real difference to the lives of children.

When you begin a career in an SDN Early Education and Care centre, you're joining a village of opportunity. Our centres are inclusive and unique environments where everyone is welcome and respected. Discover a community of professionals who are enhancing children's wellbeing by partnering with families to enrich young lives every day.

About Us

SDN Children's Services is a not for profit organisation that has been delivering quality early childhood education and child care, children's therapies and family support services since 1905.

About the Centre

SDN Lady McKell is a 73 place centre providing high-quality and early childhood education and child care for children from birth to school age in Goulburn. We are located in the centre of Goulburn so we make regular trips with the children to Goulburn Regional Art Gallery, Goulburn Mulwaree Library, nearby parks and places of interest such as the police station, fire station and local businesses.

SDN Lady McKell has a large outdoor play area with lots of trees to provide shade in the summer and sun-dappled adventures during the winter. It has a sandpit under a sail, cubby spaces, and a proper mud kitchen with wide sinks and bench tops so the children can create garden play delicacies! There's also a veggie garden where the children plant seedlings, which they later pick and eat as part of their nutritious meals. Last but certainly not least is the chicken house where their beloved centre chickens live.

  • help to create a stimulating, positive environment to foster and support children's development (physical, social, emotional, language, creative and cognitive).
  • Work with a team of experienced educators who create an environment that ensures trust and security and provides flexible routines and smooth transitions.
