In addition to the experts within G8 Education, we have established partnerships with some of the world’s best early childhood experts to deliver training and education programs.

Dr Kaylene Henderson

Medically trained child psychologist Dr Kaylene Henderson is one of our partners and supports our team and families with exclusive content from her Raising Good Kids course.

Semann & Slattery

Semann & Slattery, one of Australia’s leading professional development providers in the early childhood education sector, has a long and strong partnership with G8 Education. Our current program, Teaching for Tomorrow, has been developed exclusively for our Early Childhood Teachers. Developed by Anthony Semann, this program takes teachers on a journey of educational discovery to enact change and deliver exceptional outcomes for children and families.

La Trobe / Macquarie University / QUT

We are proud to partner with some of Australia’s leading universities including Macquarie University, La Trobe University and Queensland University of Technology to upskill our people and support our people to progress their careers. Through our Bachelor Scholarship Program G8 Education provides financial support for study costs and placement opportunities to enhance our team’s practical learning. Participants can choose to study for their Bachelor of Early Childhood Education after completing their Diploma or go straight to university.


G8 Education is also proudly partnering with Bravehearts to put child protection first. A ground-breaking project with Australia’s leading child protection agency will see a new Framework delivered across G8’s national network of centres from 2020. Aimed to empower children and ensure child safety and protection is front of mind for educators, teachers and families, the Framework is endorsed by Bravehearts and Ernst & Young.

Pheonix Support

G8 Education is proud to partner with the team at Phoenix Support for Educators. This innovative organisation supports our early childhood educators with curriculum development, documentation, meaningful interactions, involved play, behavioural guidance and environmental aesthetics for all children in our centres across the country. They inspire our educators by facilitating change and progress with fresh ideas and inspiration to create awareness and confidence for what is possible as reflective practitioners in early childhood education and care.
