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. Our 3+ class (trains) begin the day with a formal registration, and they continue their morning with academic activities such as writing their name on the white board, recognising numbers, discussing stories, learning sounds with jolly phonics and sharing their ideas, and what they did over the weekend. Children then have free-flow play inside and out. Healthy snacks, milk and water are available daily. We end the session with mediation, breathing and yoga with Jyoti Jadhav - our Health and Wellbeing Co-ordinator. Each day our Train class will participate in smaller group work with a qualified teacher and our SENCO and Communication and Language Co-ordinator.
Afternoons and Full Days 12.15-3pm or 9.15-3pm (£17 or £34 for all day )
For our 3 years and over, your child is welcome to stay for an afternoon, 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.
