Jack and Jill's
A home from home; where children can learn in an environment where cuddles and laughter are plenty, where children feel safe and cared for; enabling them to learn, grow and develop friendships.
Mornings 9.15-12.15 (£17)
We are open mornings 5 days a week for children 2 years and over. Children are split into 2 classrooms- for 2years (caterpillars)and 3 plus (trains). By having the 2 classrooms we can ensure the smaller children are safe and comfortable, while differentiating and preparing older children for school.
There are various activities and toys available, from malleable play with playdough, or water and boats, building equipment, lots of roleplay, instruments, dressing up, the book corner, sensory area and craft activities among many more. We have 2 classes; Jack's Class (2 years) and Jill's Class (3yrs plus). Each class has a different entrance and exit to create distance between our parents/carers at drop off. This also enables us to use different stations for cleaning hands and 2 areas for Registration. Our younger children have time to settle in a smaller group to begin the day with a formal registration, for snack time and songs, and for yoga and meditation at the end of the morning session. During registration they continue their morning with academic activities such as writing their name on the white board, recognising numbers, learning sounds with jolly phonics and sharing what they did over the weekend. Following registration, children then have free-flow play inside and out. Milk and water are available daily and children bring in fruit for their snack.
Afternoons and Full Days 12.15-3pm or 9.15-3pm (£17 or £34 for all day )
We have afternoon sessions, or a whole day, following on from the morning session. In the Afternoon the children enjoy talking and socialising with their friends, while having their lunch, brought in from home. The afternoon provides an opportunity for children to stay for a full day, while experiencing a similar day to what they will soon experience in school. Children carry out various activities from painting and creating with junk craft to science activities and fun in the garden. We complete the afternoon session with Jolly phonics, yoga and meditation. On Wellness Wednesday, our afternoon session takes place outdoors.
