Expanding Horizons: Visa Sponsorship for Certificate III, Diploma, and ECT Early Childhood Educators

By Montessori Academy22/11/23

At Montessori Academy, we believe in nurturing the future, not just for the children in our care but also for our dedicated and passionate staff. We understand that finding the right talent to care for our little ones is paramount, and sometimes that talent comes from all corners of the globe.

That’s why we’re thrilled to announce an exciting expansion of our sponsorship program that opens up new possibilities for skilled childcare workers in Australia.

A Pathway to Permanent Residency

Until recently, Montessori Academy has been able to sponsor Early Childhood Teachers (ECT) under the Temporary Skill Shortage visa. But we understand that the childcare sector relies on more than just teachers. Childcare workers with Certificate III or Diploma qualifications play an equally vital role in shaping young minds and providing a safe, nurturing environment for children to thrive.

Effective from 25th November 2023, Montessori Academy can also sponsor childcare workers with a Certificate III or Diploma qualification.

This isn’t just a chance to work with us; it offers pathways to permanent residency in Australia and professional development with a leading company of early childhood education.

Why This Matters

Childcare workers with Certificate III or Diploma qualifications are essential to our industry. They are the caring hands and kind hearts that support children’s development during their formative years. By extending our sponsorship program to include these skilled professionals, we are not only expanding our team but also enriching the early childhood education sector in Australia.
