Why be a Reliever?:
Relieving is the best way to get a foot in the door- experience the different centres and work out the best fit for you. We often look to our reliever pool first to cover roles. However if you are happy to remain a reliever- we offer great flexibility with a reliever system that allows you to monitor and control your own work-life balance with your calendar. 
At BestStart we always look to our Reliever Team first for possible teachers for permanent roles in our centres, although you will still need to go through the normal recruitment process.
Our philosophy is to encourage centres to create their own unique identity to best meet the needs of their community and as a result BestStart is as diverse as the families who attend our centres.

  • Reliable and flexible
