While the Queensland Government has allocated over $4 million in grant funding to develop a new childcare facility in Cloncurry, demand for educators remains high with the area facing a shortage of Early Childhood educators.

Curry Kids Early Learning Centre located in Cloncurry has advertised over the past 12 months for an Early Childhood teacher to join their community amidst the inclining population.

The role could effectively support parents returning to work industries as the current strain on childcare services continues to impact local families and businesses.
