Centrally located in Fairfield at 1670 Richardson Street, our centre is warm, friendly, bright, and bustling with creativity.
The JK (as we are affectionately known) is a unique place for children to learn, grow and play. We believe it is important for children know that they are in a safe, supportive and nurturing environment.
All of our educators are certified Early Childhood Educators or Early Childhood Educator Assistants. We maintain a lower ratio than licensing requires, allowing us to give your child the extra support he or she needs. Our educators work collaboratively as a team to encourage appropriate behaviours. We believe in open, courteous communication between the educators, children and their families.
Learning through play is an essential part of our enriched curriculum.
Faith: All children participate in daily grace at lunch time. We attend chapel at Christ Church Cathedral once a month, and we participate in bi-weekly faith classes.
Emergent curriculum: Whenever possible we facilitate small group learning. Our curriculum may start with a theme, and as the children’s interests develop and change, so does our theme. We believe it is important to follow the children’s interests for optimal learning.
Community: Our Educators work hard to create a warm community within our centre. Staff update the parent boards daily with information about what we did during the day. We also host BBQ’s and other family gatherings a few times a year. We also have a closed private family Facebook page so parents can see all of those magic child care moments.
Literacy: Educators read daily with the children. We teach the children name and letter recognition; we use the Jolly Phonics program, and also have bi-weekly Spanish classes. As children become older and are ready for the next challenge, we help support them in learning to write their names.
Adventures: We are outside EVERYDAY! Rain or shine, there are always new adventures and things to learn. The JK is situated in a beautiful location with many natural elements to discover. In addition to our enormous backyard playground, our neighbourhood includes Government House, Gonzales Beach, Hollywood Park and Pemberton Park to name a few.
Specialist Teachers & Activities: We are fortunate to have speciality teachers visit us on a regular basis. We have ART and MUSIC classes, SPANISH lessons, visit KINDER GYM for physical literacy and teach the children positive social skills daily.
Our program offers full time spaces for children aged 2.5-5 years. We are open Monday to Friday from 7:30am and have a last pick up time of 5:25pm. All children who are attending for the day must be at the centre by 9:30am so they will not miss out on any adventures.
