Our Staff

Children Reading

You can be assured your Cubs will be always be safe and well cared for by our team.

Pride Lands programmes are managed by inspiring leaders and mentors. Our staff have experience in childcare and have completed a selection process that involves pre-interview questions, a police check, a referee check, informal and formal interviews, and demonstrable availability and commitment to the program throughout their selection process, training and during their employment.

Some of our team members have current first aid certificates that are either acquired by the staff themselves or provided by Pride Lands as part of their professional development.

The Pride Lands Difference

Many childcare organisations employ people to act as babysitters for children as they entertain themselves, often in front of screens.

Pride Lands is different. Every one of our mentors is heavily invested in the wellbeing and social outcomes of all the children who are part of the Pride Lands family. They have the skills and experience to provide any child with the tools they need to manage themselves and thrive.

Our Pride Lands mentors put the CARE into childcare.
