Learn about our Early Education Centre (EEC)
Ipswich Junior Grammar School’s Early Education Centre (EEC) is our fun and friendly co-educational community of young learners.
Your child can start their learning adventure from Kindy (three and four years of age) and Pre-Prep (four and five years of age) in a safe, warm and stimulating environment where quality care is our highest priority.
The EEC adopts a Reggio Emilia approach to teaching, which places the natural development of children as well as the close relationships they share with their environment, at the centre of its philosophy.
All our caring staff are trained above the required qualifications. We place great importance on continuity of care, meaning we have set rosters and your child has the same teachers each day they attend.
Our enthusiastic teachers guide our boys and girls through a planned, play-based curriculum that is focused on social and personal learning, health and physical development, language and communication, early mathematical understanding and active learning processes.
We have a formal transition program in Term 4 for children moving on to Prep at Junior Grammar, to ensure a smooth start to school life and fewer first-day tears.
Let our Kindy and Pre-Prep children take you on a tour! Please watch the video below to see our Early Education Centre in action.
