Our Teachers

As per the Canada-British Columbia Early Learning and Child Care Agreement research into early childhood education has found that quality child care provided by qualified ECEs can provide positive developmental outcomes for all children.

Our Teachers are qualified Early Childhood Educators (ECE), ECE Assistants(ECEA), with Childhood First Aid, and certified Responsible Adults, who bring a variety of life experiences and interests to our classroom, which add to the colourful make up of our school teaching environment.

Our teacher’s goals are to provide program excellence, valuing flexibility, cooperation, creativity and motivation by:

  • Capturing children’s natural curiosity and to encourage children to love learning
  • Engaging and supporting children in their learning of language and motor skill development
  • Guiding children in social behaviour – taking turns, respecting another’s body, space and feelings, self regulation, basic manners, toileting etiquette, eating etiquette, and problem solving
  • Accepting and celebrating the individuality of each child
  • Building strong realtionships with each child and family
  • Respecting the needs and choices of each child and family

ECE – Head Teacher Jenna

Working with children has always been a passion of mine. Going to University and getting my Early Childhood Educator Diploma, gave me a better foundation to build upon something I already knew. Children are smart, capable little beings. Curious about the world around them and full of great insight on how they view the world. The study of people in general is really fascinating to me. I am currently enrolled in University to get my Educational Assistant and Support Worker Certificate. I also work with SCACL on the Sunshine Coast, supporting people with disabilities. I have a son, Louis. He is 6 years old and loves to play baseball, go swimming and have play dates with friends. We are originally from Alberta but came for a visit to the Sunshine Coast, and decided we wanted to stay. We love the outdoors, the rain and the beach. My son went to preschool here and I’m so happy to be teaching at Jack and Jill.

ECEA – Teacher Robin – Early Childhood Education and it’s value, perked my interest seeing my twins grow and learn their social, emotional and problem solving skills in their Jack and Jill Preschool experience. I am happy to now join Jack and Jill, as an Early Childhood Education Assistant and tend to the Administration duties of our school.
