Service Leader

Jackie

Hi, I’m Jackie and I’m the Service Leader at Hopetoun Uniting Early Learning Service. I’ve been the lead here since 2015, and have worked in the sector for 25 years. I hold a Diploma of Children’s Services and am currently completing a Bachelor of Early Childhood in Early Childhood Education and Care.

I love the way children view the world and the simplicity of the every day while complex learning takes place. I enjoy sharing my knowledge and skills with children and fellow educators. I’m passionate about respecting the natural world we live in and advocating for those who need support.

Hopetoun Early Learning is a unique setting that provides learning opportunities for children to support and learn from each other. Our small-town feel and natural spaces support a sense of belonging and community.

Health and wellbeing

Mental health

Our educators are trained in various programs to support the mental health of your child and are skilled in working with children who have experienced challenges and trauma. We also offer mental health support for families if you find yourself in need of assistance.

Nutrition

Your child will enjoy a range of nutritious meals and snacks made from ingredients harvested from our own garden. Your child will learn about the importance of healthy eating, nutrition and an active lifestyle.

Safe environment

As a child safe organisation, our educators undergo regular working with children’s and police checks. We are focused on delivering learning and development in a safe and supportive environment, so you can trust that your child is in good hands.
