Early Learning Activities

Activities at Jenny’s ELC

At Jenny’s Early Centre, we encourage each child to play, explore and learn in our diverse indoor and outdoor environments. Focusing on play-based learning, emergent curriculum, and a structured routine, we support and supervise preschool children, nurturing literacy and numeracy skills, as well as social skills, imagination, high-level thinking, an interest in sustainability, and much more.

We couple our activities with rich intentional teaching, regular parental involvement, and regular special events and excursions.

Indoor Activities

Jenny’s ELC offers four modern state-of-the-art facilities that are designed to nurture and educate your child. Our centres in Bendigo Hospital, Epsom, Maiden Gully and Strathfieldsaye are equipped for a range of indoor activities, : that will truly bring the best out in your child. From interactive learning through technology to getting their hands dirty in our garden or digging patch Jenny’s ELC has everything you need (and more) for a great long day care experience

Outdoor Activities

Each of Jenny’s Early Learning Centres is built for safe, fun outdoor play and discovery. Set among charming and engaging surrounds, our outdoor activities encourage children to learn about sustainability and the environment.

Incursions, Excursions and Special Programs 

At Jenny’s ELC, we enrich our kindergarten and pre-kinder programs with carefully considered, relevant and fun  excursions and incursions. These activities are designed to give children a greater appreciation of the wider Bendigo community, and parents or special friends are always welcome to volunteer and attend – both the staff and the children love having new friends come along.

Your centre will also typically run enriching special programs throughout the year, such as activities for Book Week, the Kinder Olympics, or the BDAC Indigenous Learning Program. Information about these programs will be provided throughout the year.

If you would like to learn more about our daily programs and special activities, please contact your nearest centre in Bendigo, Epsom, Maiden Gully or Strathfieldsaye.
