Jan Juc Pre School was set up by a group of dedicated parents in 1981 and now provides a high quality early learning experience for approximately 170 local children each year.

We value our connection with the wider community, offering experiences that gradually expand the children’s knowledge and understanding of their world. We believe children learn best through meaningful play. It encourages curiosity, discovery and problem solving, which allows for personal growth and development of a positive self-image.

It is the philosophy of Jan Juc Pre School that children be encouraged to learn and grow through a play-based curriculum that reflects the individual and unique nature of every child.


In our beautiful coastal bush setting, we provide a safe, happy and nurturing environment. We value the indoor, outdoor and bush kinder learning spaces as equally important. We believe in supporting children to respect and value nature. We actively promote sustainability, a sense of wonder, creativity and free thinking in all our environments. Most importantly we want everyone, every year to have FUN.

Jan Juc Pre School adopts a play-based curriculum and was one of the first preschools in Victoria to develop a bush kinder program.
