What Our Educators Are Saying

  • Mandy

    Southern River

"I've been a Family Day Care Educator with Elite since my first day in the industry in April 2009 and very proud to say so. Over the years there have been so many changes but all the way through I've felt looked after by people in the know.

2020 has taught me that it’s important to be part of a scheme that cares and takes the time to go the extra mile to research and do the right thing by educators.

The elite team are very approachable, and the BDMs are just amazing!"
