At the Hive, we strive to only hire the best and dedicated and highly trained and caring educators.
Our educators are passionate about their work and have a strong desire to make a real difference in the life of your child.
Our educators will take the time to learn about your child and their unique interests. They will work with you, the parent, who knows your child the best to help them learn more about your child and their background and culture so we can deepen their learning opportunities.
We believe that families need to be a part of their child’s growth and daily routine. We will regularly communicate with you on how your child is progressing and their day-to-day experiences.
We look for the following most important qualities in our educators:
Dedication: The number one quality that we require in all our educators is dedication. We believe that educators don’t only need to be passionate but dedicated to bringing out the best in your child.
We want our educators to be dedicated to the love of learning and inspire the children under their care.
Patience: Along with an underlying desire for teaching and a love for children, we think all educators need to display and have plenty of patience. Children that come to our centres all have varying developmental needs and different interests and experiences at home and might come from a non-English speaking or multi-cultural background.
Children need to be constantly reminded of manners, hygiene and classroom procedures and routines. It takes patience to look after each child and we believe that is one of the most important skills for an educator to have.
Creativity: Creativity is more than just making fun art projects with your child. Educators need to have a creative flare to be able to teach children using different types of resources and be able to teach children from varying cultures and backgrounds. They need to be able to draw from their creative side to make decisions outside the norm in the best interest of your child.
