All educators have a Working with Children check, Police clearances, a medical clearance and a current First Aid Qualification which include Anaphylaxis and Asthma training.
Philosophy of a Family-Centred Service
The Management, Educators and families of Jack & Jill Early Learning Centre are committed to providing the highest standard of quality care for the children attending the centre and incorporating the vision Belonging, Being and Becoming.
- We aim to provide a secure, caring and stimulating environment in which relationships can evolve and each Childs’ identity and sense of self is valued.
- To facilitate learning and development through play, both child and adult initiated, as a natural way for children and babies to develop and master skills in the outdoor and indoor environments.
- We understand the importance of mental health and wellbeing in children and will endeavour to reduce the daily stress on a child by providing predictable routines and familiar educators, and by offering children time and flexibility to observe others, and experience the joys of both active and quiet play.
- To provide quality child care that is sensitive to each child as a unique individual with diverse heritage, culture, family background, knowledge and skills.
- To respect the contribution play makes to child development and provide a program of planned play-based learning that is responsive to children’s interests, and offers a balance of challenges and opportunities for success.
- To create an environment where individual staff and team potential can be optimally and regularly developed for the benefit of the children, parents and community.
- We will promote parent and community involvement to ensure acceptance and awareness of the importance of Early childhood education and care, both internally and within the wider community.
