About Us

Kids First is an established, award-winning and family owned private practice with a stellar reputation for clinical excellence and for the fun and friendly way in which we help children to achieve excellent outcomes.

Since 2007, our experienced team of speech pathologists, occupational therapists, child psychologists and teachers has helped more than 10,000 northern beaches children and their families.

With 10 years’ history, we are expanding again now in order to meet our community’s needs.

Children and families come to us through frequent word of mouth recommendations, medical referrals and our strong networks in the local community, so we’re looking for a personable and outgoing Customer Service Officer who shares our core values and is driven to develop and excel in private practice.

At Kids First, our core values are care, kindness and compassion.

We are proud of our reputation for ‘walking the talk’ and living our values every day as we help children to achieve their goals.

Our culture is positive, supportive and responsive and we know that the quality of our professional relationships is reflected in the high calibre of care that we provide to our clients and community.

And ‘our kids’ and their families are not the only people we care about….

We care about you as much as you care about the clients you work with.

We know that to do your job well, you need support, opportunity and the right tools.

We’ll provide you with the support of an experienced Practice Manager who will train and guide you.

And we’ll offer an attractive salary with great performance incentives, so you’ll be rewarded for your hard work too.
