A note from Bronwyn;

Since walking through the doors of an empty building for the first time in June 2008, I am very proud of the environment we have created for our families. Giving children messages of respect, love, approval and encouragement enabling them to develop a positive sense of who they are... a feeling of belonging and a feeling that they have an important contribution to make wherever they are.

I feel a wonderful sense of belonging every time I enter the doors at Jigsaw. I am fortunate to have a professional team to work with each and every day, a reliable and supportive Management team and our enthusiastic and respectful Educators working together to provide the best possible environment for your children to learn their lifelong skills.

Welcome to Jigsaw Childcare.

A note from Jayne;

As Director of this wonderful Centre since it opened in June 2008, I feel it is like a home away from home. I feel as though I belong here as I love working with children. I love their spontaneity, love of life, watching them grow and achieve their milestones. I believe that all children have the right to feel safe, cared for and treated as individuals. As Educators we need to really know what makes the children in our care happy, comfortable and interested in their learning. I believe that Educators and families are in partnership together caring for these precious children. Sharing individual information together is so important for both families and children to feel safe in this child centred environment. I am privileged to be leading a team of professionals who are dedicated to instilling a sense of belonging and self-value into children as well as preparing them for lifelong learning. I look forward to working with you and your children.

Information about our educators is displayed in their portfolios located in the Centre foyer and includes a little about them, their qualifications and any professional development they have undertaken.
