Play is essential to every child’s learning and development. It enables children to make decisions, learn, take risks, and have fun. Our experienced team plan play-based learning activities in line with national standards. The Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) is designed to engage in your child’s interests and allow them to experience each day in a new way, supporting their learning in the lead-up to primary school. 

Our Early Learning Curriculum also provides children with :

Real Life experiences: Children participate in fun and exciting experiences such as caring for our worm farm and exploring basic cooking skills.

Sustainability program: Each age group participates in a sustainability project that help children embed sustainable practices into everyday life. Children learn about recycling, conserving water, growing food and the importance of looking after and protecting our planet.

Community engagement activities: We often have visits from local community members, local police, and other community services in Wellard to help familiarise the children with their local community. We also have excursions to our local and local primary school Wellard Primary School to assist our kindergarten children with their transition to ‘big school’.

Rooms

Nursery (0 – 15 months)

Learning starts from before birth. Our nursery Educators have created a welcoming and nurturing environment where each baby feels safe to explore and discover new things – through their senses, their communication, cues (body language, facial expression, and sounds) and by experimenting.

On any given day you can see the nursery children engaging in all types of meaningful play, such as water play, music time, story time and more. Each day provides a brand new, exciting opportunity for our nursery children.

Junior 1 (15 months – 2 years)

In our junior toddler rooms we plan experiences that explore creativity, gross motor skills, sensory play. We teach children indpendence regarding belongings, sleeping on ‘big beds’ and out of cots. Children have a smaller yard shared with Nursery to have safe access to outdoor learning and play.

Junior 2 (2 – 3 years)

In our toddler rooms we will see a great increase in art exploration, music and singing, group play and access to the ‘big outdoor yard’. We have science experiments, constructed play, outdoor exploration of sandpit and slide. We also help with toilet training with our child size toilets.

Pre Kindy (3 – 3.5 years)

This is where we raise strong, independent learners. We explore a significant increase in learning, focusing on children’s self help skills as we prepare for Kindy. We help children develop fine motor skills as well as build on literacy and numeracy skills through reading, storytelling, and science based experiences. We have our own yard to allow learning and play within the natural environment. Children also have access to bathrooms.

Kindy (3.5 – 6 years)

Our play-based Kindergarten program encourages active engagement in learning and supports a range of positive developmental outcomes including resilience, independence, critical thinking, and creativity, in order to prepare them for school. We also do yoga practices with children.

Jellybeans’ Family Support team will add your child’s name to our waitlist if one of our centres is currently full in your child’s age group. We will then contact you as soon as a place becomes available.

We also do monthly check-ins to review the availability, and you will receive a text message confirming if you’re still happy to remain on the waitlist each month. If you would like to get an update at any point, you’re welcome to reach out on our Web Chat or give us a call.

It’s common for a child to experience separation anxiety when they first start child care. When you’re getting ready to start child care, you can help your child overcome anxieties by visiting the child care centre together for a Stay and Play session, and easing into new routines at home.

Jellybean uses Xplor Home as our family communication app. It is the best and easiest way to keep track of your child’s day. After you enrol your child with the centre, you can utilise Xplor Home to book child care days, manage your account, receive the photographs that capture your child’s learning, learn about your child’s progress, as well as keep up-to-date with upcoming centre events and important information.

If your child shows signs of an infectious illness when they arrive at the centre or becomes sick during the day, you may be notified that you need to make alternative arrangements or pick up your child from the centre, and keep them home until they are no longer infectious. While we understand that this can be inconvenient, Jellybeans is committed to maintaining a healthy environment and reducing the risk of infection for all children.

Under the Child Care Subsidy (CCS), families are allowed 42 absence days per child, per financial year. These can be taken for any reason, including public holidays and when children are sick, without the need for families to provide documentation.
