Overall Reviews at G8 Education
Childcare is hard, if you don't have the right team, managers or support it dosnt work, don't put work before your health, it will defeat you. Put your heart and soul into it but don't let it rule you.
Great overall work atmosphere
Staff are amazing and supportive. I have learnt how to work with others to reach a common goal I also developed the skills required to manage a group of people to reach a set goal. I loved working with the children and being able to be creative and be myself not having to rein in my love for children's songs and dancing badly. The hardest part of the job were all the changing regulations and methods on how certain tasks were to be performed
A small and friendly centre wth lots of incredible staff
I really loved working at this centre. I learned a great deal and was able to grow as an educator due to the support and training provided from Management at the time.
Prosmade good friends, built confidence and learned new skills
ConsPart-Contract was only on a contract basis, which was only valid for a year at a time

Productive and fun workplace
Amazing staff and families to work with, energetic team, management always there when need help, great community. Open and bright rooms when you walk in, nice filled cupboards and tables full of childrens activities to do
Very comfortable and kind environment
The staff and management at the centre i work is very nice, everyone is very kind and willing to help. The children at the centre i work at are wonderful and behaved, the experiences made for the children are age appropriate and the children always enjoy them. The staff and management are sometimes unorganised with shifts and what is happening, they often have to check things and see each other to fix miss communication.
Co- workers are helpful and friendly.The best thing i like in this centre is they use sustainable material for learning resources.
Consno siting arrangements for staff
Great team of educators.
I was able to build on my experience, wile working with an amazing bunch of educators. The most enjoyable part of my job was watching the children grow, learn and transition over their time at community kids.
Very wonderful place to work, all the staffs are helpful and friendly and easy to work with.
I have been working with this company since last 2 years. I find this place very nice. Feels like second home to me. Understanding director. Helpful co-workers. Everyday I am learning new things from my senior educators.
They respect and value the culture. Equality is the first priority of this place.
Children comes first. Taking care of them, teaching them, make them feel comfortable and confident so that they can be good human being in the future is the philosophy.
Welcoming parents. Make them think and feel happy that they are not leaving their child in strangers hand.
Over all I would like to say the best place ever that I have worked with.
Pros10 mins paid lunch breaks, 50% discount to permanent staffs child
ConsSome time have to stay back an hour or 45 mins in order to balance the ratio
excellent team, great managment
I enjoyed working for nurture one Holt in Canberra it was fun and they were very flexible with the hours I worked, the director was amazing and the work place was very inclusive
Learned about adapting to change of environment and routine. Often working in different educators rooms on short notice. Routine of each room different but still had same principal of duty of care to children which taught structure.

ProsWas able to work independently when needed.
ConsSupervisor did not fight for employee needs.
