Early Childhood Teacher Job at Kids First

What does an Early Intervention Specialist do?

Kids First’s Early Intervention Specialists (EIS) are like superheroes for children, educators and families. They swoop into preschools and primary school settings, and work hand-in-hand with kids in their natural classroom and playground settings. Their mission? To help these amazing kids meet their social communication and learning goals.

What’s awesome about this role?

This is a role like no other. In fact, Kids First created this position because we saw that there is a huge gap in children’s support networks that deserved to be filled. Our Early Intervention Specialists provide an invaluable link that connects families, educators, and incredible kids who need a little bit of extra help to enjoy success as they learn. They provide professional, practical support in a child’s preschool or early primary school environment and work closely with teachers, carers, therapists and families to share strategies that work. Not only do Kids First Early Intervention Specialists empower children to thrive, but they equip and mentor fellow educators so that they create a powerful ‘ripple effect’ that has the potential for positive impacts during an educator’s career.

Could this be your next career chapter?

Say goodbye to the typical day-to-day grind in a single centre-based environment. As an Early Intervention Specialist from Kids First, you’ll be the consultant everyone looks up to, valued by colleagues and clients alike.

Picture this: a role that’s on-the-go, offering variety as you hop from one setting to another, while also spending time at our fantastic Kids First clinic in Brookvale. You’ll be a respected voice in our multidisciplinary team, collaborating with Child Psychologists, Speech Pathologists, Occupational Therapists, and Special Educators. Together, you’ll design tailored supports that match each child’s unique developmental needs.
