Our Fairfield centre, located at 1670 Richardson Street, 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 and we use the Jolly Phonics program for pre-literacy. 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.
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.
