A family owned and operated childcare company encompassing 5 centres across the Gold Coast including the Busy Bees Academy, Shining Stars Academy, the Lakes Early Learning Centre, 1 2 3 Grow Childcare and Gaven Early Learning Centre has been awarded as the ETC Employer of the Month.
Starting a decade ago the company has seen steady growth which has enabled 100 local staff to be employed across all of their centres.
One of the General Managers Justin Zulamoski said he believed that staff was the key to the success of any business including their own.
“We provide our staff with team building exercises, activities, workshops and quarterly team bonding outings. We celebrate their individual birthdays by giving each of them a gift, professional development opportunities and traineeships. We also have an open door policy to encourage our staff to speak openly with us,” Mr Zulamoski said.
“There are a lot of opportunities for growth within our organisation. For example, we had a school based trainee who became an assistant, progressed to a Lead Educator and then went on to study a Bachelor in Early Childhood Education.”
According to Mr Zulamoski the group cared about their local community and offered extracurricular services for families at no cost.
“These include yoga classes, gardening classes, dancing, soccer and language classes,” he said.
“We also take parent communication very seriously. We take on board all feedback received from parents and implement many of the suggestions throughout our centres.”
Mr Zulamoski thanked ETC for providing the company with staff who were qualified, motivated and had the desire to work in the Childcare industry.
“Our experience with ETC has been nothing short of fantastic. They do the initial screening process for us, we tell them what we are looking for. All of the staff we have hired through ETC have been great. One in particular, we employed as a Chef who has been providing fantastic nutritious meals for the children and we have recently received a 5 star rating for our kitchen health and safety,” he said.
