✦ Know of a place where you can go to work to play? No, we're not talking about Google! Just go to TG's Child Care!
Did you know that we spend an average of a third of our lives at work? That's a lot of hours! It is even more important that we choose a job where we feel fulfilled, where our gifts are being valued and shared and where we feel part of a team making a real difference to a cause.
Educators at TG's Child Care are famous for 'paddling the canoe' together as a team. They've got each other's backs and they know TG's is their home away from home. And they get to PLAY and be the FUN experts every day! Children can spot a TG's Educator from a mile away, because they are the first to be ready to jump into a mud puddle or spend a full 5 minutes just watching a caterpillar crawl!
It is clear why those who know TG's want to spend as much time there as possible. TG's stands out for having children who grew up and in turn became TG's Educators themselves, and even parents whose children went to TG's got so inspired they themselves signed up to be a TG's Educator! Families probably wish they could stick around a little longer when they drop off their children at TG's! If you've seen their award-winning gardens, you'll understand why.
A career in Early Childhood Education is a highly rewarding one, and like in any job in any industry, one does have to think carefully about why we want to take on this job and wonder if it's really suitable for us. How is your career path going to look like as we step into the New Year?
There are three main reasons why TG's Educators love what they do.
1. A loving culture
TG's Educators are nurtured in a loving, inclusive culture. Your growth and development in your career is as important as the learning journeys of the children. TG's Educators know the TG's Family has got their back. This is a place where your gifts are valued and appreciated. Here, your voice is heard. Your ideas and thoughts are respected in a culture of openness. Children are often encouraged to be curious and ask questions. TG's Educators offer the same to each other! Many have said that TG's is their Home Away from Home.
It is not common to have male educators in the Early Childhood sector, and TG's has certainly succeeded in creating an inclusive environment where they actually have four male Educators. Read more about them here:
2. A sense of belonging that extends to the community
This loving atmosphere does not end where TG's four walls end. When you are a part of TG's, the joy and fun of learning extends way beyond TG's playspaces and outwards into their communities. Everyone in the TG's Family is a positive, supporting contributing member of the local communities. There is a warm sense of belonging and TG's is famous for being welcomed wherever they go. Everyone at TG's takes part in festivals and events in the communities, and it is a truly joyful feeling to celebrate together. As they say, time flies when you're having fun, and time at TG's really does zip by!
3. Making a difference
TG's Educators are a role model to the children. You enrich a child's learning journey, and it is an incredible feeling to know you have played a part in helping each child achieve their unique milestones. Every day, Educators see how they make a difference and when you are involved in the life of a child, you get the privilege of seeing how they develop and grow all in the space of a year. There is so much to celebrate! You get to share in each child's joy when they achieve a milestone, and you are also the trusted one they turn to when they need comfort and encouragement.
TG's Child Care's purpose is to nurture independent young minds by building meaningful engagements and partnerships with families and communities. What they affectionately call the TG's Way encourages collective thinking and life-long learning. Children are Playing it Forward from the first day at TG´s to beyond.
