Jumping Jacks Community Preschool is a community based, not for profit organisation catering for Preschool Education and Care of 40 children aged 3-5years per day. We have been operating in the local community for the last 33 years.
Our Preschool operates school terms: 8.30am-4.00pm. Our Preschool consists of two classrooms known as the ‘Blue’ Room and the ‘Green’ Room. Families are requested to drop their children off between 8.30-9.30am and to pick up between 2.30-4.00pm. Traditional attendance pattern is:
Monday/Tuesday or a Thursday/Friday with the addition of a Wednesday (depending on availability).
Our Preschool Program is informed by the Early Years Learning Framework, our knowledge of your child’s strengths and curiosities, our Centre Philosophy, and Educators Experience and Knowledge.
We offer children the opportunity to engage in a range of learning experiences that have been intentionally planned to promote your child’s confidence as a capable and confident learner.
Our Preschool Program will build upon your child’s emotional capacities, as we support them to regulate their emotions, build resilience and develop open mind sets. These skills help to establish solid foundations for becoming Successful Life Long Learners, not just in the year prior to school.
We employ a higher ratio of Educators to children than is required by Regulations.
Our Highly Qualified and Experienced Educators have:
• Tertiary training in Early Childhood Education
• Extensive experience in the Early Childhood field
• Life experiences which makes them valuable professionals in the lives of our children, families and in the wider community
• Senior First Aid certificate, including Asthma and Anaphylaxis
• Specific roles, such as:
o ‘WHS’ Officer: maintaining a safe, clean and healthy environment is a priority for all users of the centre
o ‘Environment & Sustainability’ Officer: implementing sustainable practices into the daily program
o ‘Events, Visitors & Excursions’ Officer: exposing children to new experiences and building connections with the community
We look forward to meeting with you and your family and building strong connections with you now and into the future.
