Located within the grounds of Bendigo Health, on the corner of Lucan and Arnold Streets, Jenny’s Early Learning Centre Bendigo Hospital is the charming heritage-listed Yarrington House. Blending harmoniously with the new, state of the art renovations in the rear, our Bendigo Hospital location is surrounded by 100-year-old deciduous trees and open grassland, which we try to incorporate into our programs at every opportunity.

Jenny’s ELC Bendigo Hospital hosts five rooms, two outdoor yards and a magnificent deck, overlooking the outdoor play spaces which feature soil, sand and running water. Fruit trees, vegetable gardens and sensory gardens are woven into the landscape and tended to by the children and educators, giving children a creative, sensory learning experience.

Our curriculum is spontaneous, emergent, and reflects the interests and developmental levels of the children. Incorporating programs that promote sustainability, literacy, numeracy and creative arts, the centre offers excursions, incursions, special family days and dress up days that support children’s interests and concurrently develop relationships with the local community.

Integral to our centre is our Kindergarten program, typically operating 7.5 hours each day. The program is run by a university qualified Kindergarten teacher and incorporates an extensive transition to school program, developed in conjunction with the Early Years Coordinators of surrounding schools. The program includes visits to schools, as well as visits to the centre by the school’s Prep teachers.

Jenny’s ELC Bendigo Hospital also offers a Pre-Kindergarten program managed by a university qualified teacher. Children can explore the resources of the centre, developing and extending their skills in a play-based environment, which will support a confident and smooth transition to the Kindergarten Room.

An extensive orientation and transition process gives families, educators and children the opportunity to evaluate the best placing for each child.

We welcome new families at any time to call in and have a look at our centre and the high quality programs we deliver.

We have had 2 children attend the service over the last 5 years. We have found the educators to always helpful and caring towards our children. The educators will communicate any issues as they arise and are supportive of any changes we want to make.

We highly recommend Jenny’s ELC Hospital. The educators and management are always friendly and welcoming, and very accommodating to our child’s needs. We love their programs and how the educators are always coming up with new ways to educate the children through play. Any questions or requests we made were always dealt with promptly. Their huge outdoor play area is one of the best we’ve seen. Plus we love the fact their in-house chef prepares delicious healthy meals daily, from scratch! A special mention for “Bob the builder” for always being friendly to my little one and patient with answering all his questions. And lastly, a huge thank you for all your hard work and sacrifices in the last 2 years to care for our little one. You kept him safe and well cared for, made life for him as normal as it can be with all that was happening - we thank you from the bottom of our hearts ♥️

Jenny's ELC Bendigo Hospital have gone above and beyond for my family. Offering and delivering extra support during difficult times, not just for my child attending but for myself and my other children as well. I have been extremely impressed not only by the professionalism, but also the compassion that all the staff there show. Thank you to everyone at Jenny's.

We have been a part of the Jennys family for over 3 years and could not recommend them more highly. The staff are simply incredible and provide such meaningful play and educational experiences for our children. I feel 100% confident leaving my children in the care of the Jennys staff. Added bonus is that the outdoor play area is incredible!!

Amazing daycare We moved our toddler from another daycare where he wasn’t loving his day-to-day Now seeing him happily walk into Jenny’s gives me the freedom to go about my day without worrying (not to sound like a ShopTV ad) The educators are all fantastic and caring, with a lot of thought going into activities and transitions between rooms
