When starting with Cheeky Cherubs there is a vigorous interview and induction process. All qualifications and references are validated.

Each educator is asked to subscribe to a clear set of principles, policies and procedures, as well as a rights-based approach to early years care and education. We are an equal opportunities employer and incorporate an anti-bias curriculum into our daily practice. There are both internal and external opportunities for training, culminating in an annual in house training day, where experts as well as Cheeky Cherubs educators share their knowledge and experience with us all.

While educators spend most of their days directly with the children, there are opportunities throughout the week for Teacher Research Time (TRT). During this time, the educators reflect on the experiences and development of their key children, recording their achievements, experiences, preferences and challenges. All of which is complied into a beautiful document which becomes a history of the child’s life in Cheeky Cherubs. The leadership team work closely with the educators providing support and direction where requested or required.
