Sparrow Early Learning
About Sparrow Early Learning Centre Jacobs Ridge
Welcome to Sparrow Early Learning Jacobs Ridge, located at the entrance of the Jacobs Ridge Estate in Ormeau. Our childcare centre opened in February 2015 and we are 2 centres combined, each catering for 0-5years. Read more.
At Sparrow Early Learning Jacobs Ridge, we believe that building a strong community provides a safe and solid foundation for lifelong learning. We provide a play-based program with an emphasis on the outdoors. We have an elephant that sprays water and the yard is 80% shaded, allowing us more outside time.
We pride ourselves on our great relationships with our families and we welcome their contributions in all areas of learning, including service decisions. We like to work with our families as co-educators and we greatly value their input.
Sparrow Early Learning Jacobs Ridge is a loving, warm environment where children can feel safe, secure and supported during their time with us. We acknowledge each child is unique and let all children learn and develop at their own pace.
All of our Educators are qualified and passionate about Early Childhood Education and Care. They aim to provide quality care in all areas of the National Quality Standards and achieve quality outcomes for all children.
We have a qualified Early Childhood Teacher working at the service who delivers a government approved Kindergarten Program to our kindergarten age children. Our goal is to ensure our kindergarten children are best prepared to transition to prep and the school environment.
We welcome you and your family to our service and invite you to join us for a play and an opportunity to explore Sparrow Early Learning Jacobs Ridge.

Service Manager at Sparrow Early Learning, Jacobs Ridge
“Ever since I was young, working with children was what I was destined to do. I started babysitting and helping look after the children around our neighbourhood from 13 years old – and here I am, still caring for children to this day.” Read more.
I have worked in all positions within the centre, but teaching Preschool was one of my favourite jobs. I have been a Director for over 15 years.
I commenced at the Service as the Manager when the Centre opened in 2015 and many of the Educators are also foundation team members. My dedicated Educators work closely with the community and families which has helped us build a sense of belonging for each and every family. I believe that creating an environment inclusive of everybody is what makes a great centre. We strive to provide a welcoming, friendly environment that the children can feel at home in and learn and grow.
We look forward to showing you around our lovely Centre and introducing you to our wonderful team of Educators.
My qualifications & experience:
- Advanced Diploma of Early Education
- Over 28 years of experience in early education & childcare
The Sparrow Way.
The Sparrow Way combines proven international early learning methods to create a unique practice designed for today’s society. Guided by the principles of Reggio Emilia and underpinned by The Early Years Framework for Australia, we embrace children’s inherent abilities to learn and develop, creating an environment for them to find solutions through exploration, discovery and invention.
Our childcare centre in Ormeau promotes an open-door policy where families can visit and walk through the centre at any time during operational hours.
Once families have completed a tour, they will receive an enrolment pack with all necessary paperwork.
Once enrolled, the orientation process begins. The orientation process is an arrangement made between families and staff that supports the family’s needs.
Accessing the Childcare Subsidy
We understand that access to the Government Childcare Subsidy is an important consideration when choosing a childcare centre. Learn more about eligibility, how to access the subsidy and how Sparrow works with your family to ensure a smooth transition into early learning childcare.
