About

Welcome to Jennys ELC Strathfieldsaye!

Jenny’s ELC prides itself on providing state of the art facilities that are equipped to cater to the early developmental needs of every child. Our learning and play resources provide each child with the best opportunity to safely and creatively play, explore and learn and make some new friends!

Our naturally lit, spacious rooms allow children to play in cosy and well-equipped play spaces with easy access to outdoor play equipment and toilet facilities. The openness between the indoor and outdoor facilities allows our educators to run flexible programs that make the most of our many play and learning environments.

Our modern facilities include interactive and engaging outdoor areas, with play equipment that is suited to the abilities of children at all stages of development. Children are encouraged to get their hands dirty and learn about sustainability with our vegetable and sensory gardens, exploring their surrounds in a safe and controlled environment. Our programs help your child to step out of their comfort zone and learn new skills.

We have purpose-built kitchen facilities that allow us to prepare and provide nutritional meals for our children during their visits to our centres, catering for any food allergies and special preferences that your child may have.

Jenny’s ELC creates a trusted and safe environment for your child to play and learn. Each family upon enrolment is given a secure PIN to access the building to help ensure unauthorized access.

Strathfieldsaye Childcare Education Programs

Each program offered at our Strathfieldsaye early learning centre focuses on an emergent curriculum, shaped around children’s interests and developmental needs, as well as play-based learning. Integrating indoor and outdoor play with our state-of-the-art facilities, children have the opportunity to explore a challenging environment aimed at developing each child’s self-esteem, physical skills and social abilities.

We work to provide diverse and tailored excursions, incursions and special events days, building relationships with families and the local community.

The centre opened in February 2012 and since then has become an important part of the local community.

The Staff in the joeys room (babies) are very aware of children's autonomy and support every child's individual needs and requirements for their social and emotional wellbeing. They practice mindfulness by providing moments of relaxation within the program. These moments of relaxation are determined on an individual base through conversations with parents. But also by reading the cues and behavior's of the babies within their care. This knowledge helps the Staff connect with every child and support each child's autonomy. They do this by listening to the children and engaging in meaningful and connected conversations, creating knowledgeable insights and building family and community connections. Across the Joeys room, the quality care Staff give shines through in their nurturing of the babies. For example, through subtle changes in a child's behavior, Staff can tell that they aren't feeling well, need a nappy change, or have had enough food at mealtimes. The Staff run each session to meet the interests and needs of the children within the program. These quality professional communications can be seen throughout the room with Staff singing songs, picking babies up because they look like they need a cuddle being responsive to a child's facial cues and body language. Opening up the outside environment because they can see the babies want to explore and develop their skills outside and taking books and music outdoors to engage the children in a different environment. The Staff also gathers information on children through a goal and outcome sheet and includes families in these discussions. They also connect and build relationships with families personally by asking meaningful questions about each child, for example, how did they sleep? Are there any changes we need to know about? Therefore building' and increasing parent confidence in the quality caring babies room experience' (Warren et al 2019). The Staff all work collaboratively to support each other in sharing information, resources and knowledge. Knowledge sharing of each babies autonomy is constantly reflected with the room leader providing strong leadership for all Staff to help them grow and develop their skills. This is done through a roster that has each babies individual needs listed from bottles ,how many sleeps a baby has during the day, when they were last changed and general information from conversations with parents. Staff conversations offer opportunities for the team to discuss and support each other within the room. Every educator is supported and knows what each baby's needs are, which builds their skill set. This approach to communication within the room strengthens and enhances each educator's teaching style, thereby creating a cohesiveness that shines through each team of educators—building the baby's sense of belonging and connectedness to their carers. Building these respectful relationships through staff communications acknowledges all cultures within its program. It supports all families across all socio-economic backgrounds through an inclusive approach. And working collaboratively with each other and having respectful, caring relationships with children and families provides a quality program complete with richness. That allows families to participate in a program that can 'positively impact children developmentally ' (VAGO 2015:17). In addition, these positive impacts can support families in building a network of connections. You girls Rock!!

Both our children (age 2 and 4) attend Jenny’s Early Learning in Strathfieldsaye, and they love it. We have found that the educators support our children in their growth and development as well as providing useful parental information to us. Our eldest has uncommon allergies and Jenny’s has worked with us to make the room safe so they can enjoy social interactions. We love the friendly team at Jenny’s and so do our kids.
