Welcome to Jellybeans Childcare Como! We are a full-service, purpose-built childcare centre in South Perth who cater for children aged from birth to 6 years as well as before-school care facilities. We operate between the hours of 6:30 am and 6 pm to ensure that there is ample time for drop-offs in the morning and pick-ups in the afternoon.
At Jellybeans Como our focus is on early education so all of our children have the ability to learn and strive through their journey at the Centre, we pride ourselves in having families involved in their children’s learning journeys during their time with us. We consider that educating and caring for young formative minds is a great privilege and we take pride in implementing and practicing programs and activities that develops this.
Our Learning Spaces
Each of our five rooms has a curriculum based on the Early Years Learning Framework which is established and implemented by our qualified and dedicated staff, which provides a program full of fun and activities, specifically designed for each age group. These programs accommodate each individual child’s strengths and interests whilst further developing their skills with the program being delivered via the online learning portal; Xplor. Xplor is an online learning hub where parents receive daily reports and photos of their child’s learning, parents can log on any time during the day to access reports, observations and photos of their child.
In our Kindy room we have a School Readiness program that is delivered by our Bachelor trained Early Childhood Teacher and supported by two qualified assistants. The school readiness program focuses on providing the tools that children require to transition to mainstream schooling, this is promoted through our early education centre. Our operating hours are longer than the standard school hours, allowing for flexibility for our working and studying families.
Jellybeans Como offers incursions and excursions for all age groups as part of our curriculum, which are guided by the childrens interests and the relationships we have established in the community. The incursions and excursions are planned based around the current interests of the children, and any community events that are offered in the area. The centre also has a Centre pram called the ‘Jelly Jogger’ where up to six children can go for a walk, this promotes physical activity in our educators and also promotes and enhances the children’s exposure to the natural surrounding environments. Our children also visit the local zoo monthly, as we feel having strong connections with our communities is an important part of children’s growth and development.
The childcare centre has pets including two budgies and rabbits, our centre also participates yearly in the chicken hatching program. On Fridays we have Chinese lessons in the Pre Kindy and Kindy classes delivered by Miss Jenny.
Interactive Outdoor Environments
Our centre has large open play spaces in the downstairs rooms, these include vegetable gardens, bike tracks and large climbing forts. The children have ample opportunity to play and discover outside every day. Our menus are established for the seasons and offers a low sugar and salt variety. The menus and recipes are guided by the Australian Dietary Guidelines for children. These menus are rotational across the seasons of the year, and are also established with parent input and suggestions.
We appreciate our families come from all walks of life with different cultures, nationalities, and religions which we welcome and celebrate. Family involvement is cherished at Jellybeans Como, so we welcome contact from our parents and families at any time for any questions or ideas they might have in further developing our centre. We extend that connection and invitation to our prospective families also so please don’t hesitate to contact our centre to schedule a tour.
