Hello there and welcome to Little Locals!

If you’re already looking for childcare jobs in Brisbane, we probably don’t need to tell you how incredibly rewarding it is to work with children in their early years – the years that set the foundations for happy and healthy lives.

And you probably already know that a career in childcare gleefully defies the 9-5, ‘office job’ structure, where you can whip out the yoga mat one moment and the finger-paint the next, where your role is to dance, play, laugh, lead and, most importantly, help shape the lives of our future generations.

What we do need to tell you is why Little Locals Early Learning is the perfect place for you to do just that, offering not just a childcare job but a fulfilling career supported by like-minded people and endless opportunities.

As a brand-new, emerging network of centres, Little Locals is excited to join the industry as an innovative, people-first and forward-thinking organisation, offering:

  • 9-day fortnights for full-time staff
  • part-time roles to support work/life balance

  • generous employee benefits
  • a supportive and friendly network
  • flexible working arrangements
  • significant staff discounts

  • a variety of engaging roles

  • state-of-the-art facilities
  • a focus on sustainability

  • autonomy to develop and grow
