Who Are We?

Kimmba Bilingual Learning Inc. was a not-for-profit association organized by Jo Jo Bilingual Education Program founder, Mrs. Marisha Theeboom, and had the help of a group of volunteer mothers with professional backgrounds as committee members.

Without their hard work, professional knowledge in their own specific areas, and strong support since 2007, we wouldn't have this wonderful, educational bilingual early learning centre today, which has been specially set up for Melbourne's young learners since 2012 at St Kilda East.

Our Mission

The bilingual early learning program developed by Marisha Theeboom also helps participant children and their families understand other cultures, thus promoting community cohesion and harmony.

Kimmba Bilingual Early Learning Centre is the first long day care service in Australia that offers 4 languages spontenously to children daily. It's multilingual program aims at the acceptance of families and children who come from different nationalities and backgrounds and who speak different languages because we believe that a society that accepts its peoples’ colours, races, languages, and even religions, is a successful, well-functioning society and one in which we would like our children to live and grow. This aim has exceeds the NQF and reached the NS outcomes way beyond DET assessors can measure with their standard assessment tool.

As migrants, we would like to see multiculturalism in Australia continue to succeed and in doing so promote the diversities of the world’s cultures without any language barriers.
