At Jenny’s ELC, our philosophy is simple. We encourage every child to develop and learn while having fun and exploring their interests. In each of our centres, we engage key values for our educators, families and community to ensure that each child is receiving the best support in their early learning development.

We also think it is important to provide engaging opportunities for children to develop and we achieve this through our partnerships with local schools, businesses and charities. We are active in our beliefs about community support, which is why we proudly sponsor local sporting teams. Happy families, happy children and happy staff make Jenny’s ELC the best place to be.
