JCK – A ‘’MEETING PLACE’’ FOR CHILDREN TO EXPLORE, DISCOVER, ENGAGE AND PLAY

Our name “Jamboree” means meeting place. The line of happy children under the big bright sun is our logo.

Our association was formed in December 1990 to establish and manage a community Kindergarten and Preschool Centre in the Centenary Suburbs. The formation of the association was precipitated by the decision of the Uniting Church to close their Kindergarten at Jindalee after about 20 years of operation.

Mrs Rosemary Lacey was our founding Director. A management committee was elected and its immediate aim was to establish and open a Kindergarten in 1991 to maintain continuity of kindergarten facilities in our area. The dedication, energy and enthusiasm of the founding members ensured the successful establishment of the Association and building of the centre in Jamboree Heights.

The kindergarten began operating in our current premises in 1993. In 2018 the kindergarten community celebrated 25 years in the current building. Jamboree Community Kindergarten has always been affiliated with C&K .
