A Warm Welcome to our Kindergarten

Jack and Jill is a local, government kindergarten situated in the quiet, leafy Bayside suburb of Beaumaris. 
Both our indoor and outdoor learning spaces are outstanding and well resourced, having been purposefully designed to engage, challenge and delight your child while building their social, emotional, language, cognitive and motor skills. Our beautiful outdoor learning space was recently upgraded in 2020, enhancing the learning space for the children. Sandpits, mud and sand kitchens, water pump, outdoor block building, vegetable gardens, ropes course, cubby house, swings and our 3 pet chickens make up our large outdoor area. Indoors, various play-based learning experiences are set up daily by our educators to align with learning intentions and learning outcomes for the children across various areas including literacy, numeracy, sustainability and science
Our program is enriched by various incursions and excursions in the Senior Group throughout the year. These may vary from year to year as they are reflective of the children’s interests and learning and may involve music, movement, drama, sport, science, and sustainability. Such programs are included in the term fees. 
We invite you to meet our wonderful children, passionate educators and happy parents and experience for yourself this truly unique community Kindergarten where our focus is ensuring every child has a positive start to their educational journey. 
Jack and Jill Kindergarten has a zero-tolerance to child abuse and racism and is committed to promoting child safety, children’s wellbeing and protecting children from abuse. We aim to create a child safe and child friendly environment where children feel safe and will be supported to express and enjoy their cultural rights.

Food and Allergies

At Jack and Jill we promote healthy eating, wrapper free lunches and a safe environment for children with food allergies.

As we have children at the service with allergies we ask that no nuts or nut products be brought into the service.
