Welcome to Jack and Jill Preschool
We believe that the children are the heart of our program. We believe that children need, expect, and deserve to be guided in ways that will help their world be safe, interesting, stimulating, inviting, and friendly.
We believe in a child's individuality and the developmental needs of the whole child. Our belief is that children can learn best about themselves and their world by following, at their own rate, their natural curiosity and desire to learn. We also believe that children learn from exploration and experimentation, so we provide access to materials and activities, which help each child develop to his/her highest potential.
Our staff is prepared to meet the individual needs of your child by role modeling appropriate behavior, observing with care, and responding quickly with respect and affection. We help children extend their learning by showing interest in their play, making suggestions, adding new materials, or asking questions to stimulate new ideas.
Since "total development" involves cognitive, social, emotional, physical, and creative development, our program has been tailored to foster each child's growth in these five areas. We celebrate children's new discoveries and skills.
