About

A bit about our centre...
  • Our Philosophy

    We believe that young children are active learners who construct their own understanding and knowledge of the world.

    Each child is a unique, naturally curious and capable learner. At JEEC the children are engaged in active learning through play experiences that allow them to construct, test and apply their developing awareness.

  • “Fairness is not giving everyone the same thing, fairness is giving each person what they need to succeed”

  • The role of Families

    We believe that Families are influential and important to a child’s overall development. At JEEC Families are encouraged and supported to contribute to the daily curriculum with their skills, knowledge, culture and or traditions. We aim to create a partnership between Educators, Families and their children so that everyone feels welcomed, safe and respected.

  • The role of the Environment

    At JEEC we value the importance of caring for our environment as we promote and encourage sustainable practices such as; water conservation, energy efficiency and waste reduction.

    Sustainability programs are explored with the children, educators, families and the community through gardening, composting, worm farming, recycling and water saving activities.

  • The role of the Community

    JEEC is a Non Profit Community Based Centre that operates in conjunction with the Management Committee, Staff, Families and the Community. We acknowledge and value the importance of the wider community and endeavour to create and sustain links with our centre. We value and support ongoing development of students studying Early Childhood Education by allowing students from TAFE and University the opportunity to experience an Early Childhood setting.

    “It takes a village to raise a child”

  • Educators as partners

    We believe that young children are active learners who construct their own understanding and knowledge of the world.

    The Educators at JEEC are long standing and dedicated to the education of young children. We believe that young children flourish when the adults caring for them work well together. JEEC believes that the relationship between families and Educators should be based on mutual respect, care and understanding.
