Who We Are
Kids Jungle Long Day Care and Preschool
The way we teach in the early years must always be done with an eye to the future learning and wellbeing of our children as they travel through their schooling. We want children to develop skills that will last a lifetime, upon which a life will grow and thrive.
Kids Jungle Long Day Care and Preschool provides a vibrant and stimulating world of education and care. Our focus is on developing each child’s self-discovery, social awareness and interest in learning.
The nurturing environment of Kids Jungle provides children with an effortless transition to our School Readiness Program, which commences the year before children leave for Kindergarten.
Our experienced educators aim to provide children with access to learning about their health and wellbeing, lay the foundations for early literacy and numeracy skills, provides access to technology and facilitate opportunities for community and social interactions.
At Kids Jungle, children will participate in investigations as co-creators of understanding.They will develop a sense of wonder about the world and an ability to contribute to the generation of knowledge.
The focus at Kids Jungle is on harnessing the unique spirit of each child to ensure that they come to see learning as a worthwhile activity with its own rewards. Children will engage in a wide range of activities designed to promote inquisitiveness, creativity, imagination, and self-reflection.
Kids Jungle preschool, we all feel determined to make your child happy and enriched in both logic and creativity!
As the Centre Director, I believe that the early years are the most influential in extending and enriching children’s development and education. I believe in a program that has a foundation of learning through play, both indoors and outdoors, in which children are encouraged to make choices and extend their own learning.
I also recognise the importance of families, being the primary influence in a child’s life. I aim to continually develop and maintain collaborative and open partnerships with all families and as such promote an open-door policy.
At Kids Jungle I have a passionate and dedicated team of educators who are invested in each child’s wellbeing. Their constant positivity and hard work makes Kids Jungle an incredible working environment. We work together to form a team who respect, value each other and share knowledge and skills to provide an environment where children feel safe but are also challenged.
Nominated Supervisor and Bumblebee Room Leader
As and early childhood educator and leader I believe that each child should be looked at as a unique individual who has the capability to guide their own learning. It is important that my role is one of support, providing new opportunities and learning for the children in my care.Children should be given equal opportunity to learn and develop and this should be guided by play, interests, likes and developmental milestones. As and early childhood educator I feel that I play a big role in the development of the children in my care through providing learning and development activities, guiding best practice and creating strong relationships wit the children and families in my care.
I strongly believe that as a leader in the early childhood and education sector that I need to be a strong, knowledgeable presence who provides help and support to the other educators and staff. It is important for me to ensure that I am continually bettering myself as an educator through further training and education.
ECT, Dolphin Room Leader and Educational leader
Experiences within early childhood lay the foundation for future educational achievements. Creating enriched learning experiences are vital to maximise a child’s potential. As an early childhood teacher, I believe that it’s my role to provide quality learning and developmentally appropriate experiences where children become successful, build confidence, allow for creativity and children are active participants in their learning.To achieve quality teaching in early childhood education, I believe that opportunities for play-based learning are essential as it allows children to make sense of the world. This occurs through children engaging, processing, exploring, discovering, investigating and experimenting in learning and within the environment.
As an Early childhood teacher, it’s my role to look at children holistically and be responsive to their needs and interests. Providing opportunities for families and the community involvement will enable children to feel connected, secure, builds confidence and sense of identity.
