Jolly Jumpers Nursery and Childcare

Jolly Jumpers’ mission is to provide outstanding childcare which nurtures the potential within each and every child. The nursery and childcare centre opened in Swieqi in January 2012. It exists to provide the highest quality of childcare utilising professional, highly trained staff and facilities which reflect their commitment to caring for children, since preschool children will achieve their highest potential in a nurturing and caring environment. Child carers are trained to respect the dignity and individuality of each and every child, remembering at all times the trust which parents have placed in the centre. Through play-based learning experiences, children will learn how to constructively interact with peers and adults. Children will be given many opportunities to confidently explore through play and construct ideas about the world around them, encouraging life-long learning. The aim is to communicate life skills consistent with each child’s development and to extend their range of personal skills. Families are the most important influence in a child’s life, and thus parents are encouraged to be actively involved in the centre, contribute ideas, and take an interest in their child’s development and growth. Jolly Jumpers is certified from the Department of Education.

St. Clare College Pembroke Primary School

Inaugurated in late 2009, St. Clare College Pembroke Primary School was the first-ever school across Malta and Gozo to generate its own electricity by means of photovoltaic panels, solar water heaters and tubular day lighting units. The Foundation for Tomorrow’s Schools also helped rectify issues pertaining to flooding in both the school and surrounding areas. The two-storey building accessible for students with mobility impairment had welcomed students for the first time on the 28th September 2009. It had housed 266 students by early December 2009. The internal yard is encased in rubber safety flooring.
