At Jacobs Early Learning Centre, we aim to create an atmosphere of fun and enjoyment where children are encouraged to explore, create, question and develop their own highly individual personalities. We provide a relaxed environment, but one in which respect for ourselves, our peers, adults and equipment is promoted. We assist your child to become independent, self-disciplined and to develop strong and positive self-esteem and confidence.
All this is offered to your child in a bright and cheerful setting which provides many opportunities to play and explore the outdoors as well as a wonderful range of experiences and resources to promote inspiration and creativity indoors.
At Jacobs Early Learning Centre, we believe in social equity, cooperation, shared responsibility, self-discipline, mutual respect and respect for the social and cultural values of your family. We use our knowledge of Early Childhood Development and current theories and teaching styles to provide a stimulating that encourages curiosity, exploration and learning.
Each child is individual and unique. Our program acknowledges this by maintaining a flexible and balanced approach to allow for every developmental stage in your child’s life.
Our educators at Jacobs Early Leaning Centre are from diverse cultural backgrounds. They are encouraged to create opportunities for intentional teaching, create physical and social environments that have a positive impact on the children’s learning.
“The best part of being an educator at Jacobs E.L.C is it’s homely vibe, being in a warm and welcoming environment surrounded by people that are a second family and each morning being greeted by the children that are always so happy and full of excitement, ready to start their day with you is always so fulfilling. If I had to choose the worst part, it is definitely when children move on to further learning as we get attached from having built unique relationships with each and every child, always sad to see them go, but happy to have had the opportunity to be apart of their early learning experiences. ” – Lara (Educator at J.E.L.C since 2014)
