About the Pre-School
A unique opportunity has become available for an experienced Early Childhood Teacher in a community-focussed and Christian Pre-School. Adjacent to harbour-side parklands and a two minute walk from one of Sydney’s most spectacular Harbour views, St James’ Kindergarten is a peaceful and secluded environment for learning.

As a 30 place centre, children typically attend St James’ Kindergarten for the two years prior to school, 3-4 year olds attend Thursday/Friday, whilst 4-5 year olds attend Monday – Wednesday.  The pre-school operates 9.00am-3.30pm Monday through Friday during school terms. The Pre-School is also blessed with an active Parent Support Group and a supportive Management Committee.

The staff are extremely competent, mature and friendly and include 3 university trained staff. Four staff are present most of the day (instead of the required three) which provides some flexibility for everyone. In addition to this, an administrative staff member is employed 12 hours per week over 2 days.

 The Pre-School was established as a ministry of All Saints’ Anglican Church, Balgowlah. The church and the Pre-School continue to collaborate in sharing the good news of Jesus with the children and their families.
