Meet the team

Our philosophy is that learning is fun!  Learning is exciting! Learning is joyous!  That’s why we place such special emphasis on finding vibrant, energetic and fun-loving educators who share this philosophy.  

Build-A-Mind edutainers go out of their way to ensure that each and every child has an awesome time at our workshops and that they leave feeling empowered and excited about their ability to achieve great things in their lives.  Our edutainers come from a variety of backgrounds – some are qualified teachers, while others are TAFE and even senior high school students.  That being said, our edutainers are all characterised by their:

  • Patience and perseverance 
  • Incredible sense of humour
  • Passion for making a positive difference in the lives of children
  • Technical skill
  • Unparalleled work ethic and motivation
  • Love of teaching, laughing and having fun

Our edutainers work at Build-A-Mind not just because it’s a job but because they believe in what we do and they love doing it.
