Your Child’s Day at Jack and Jill’s Childcare

Depending on your child’s age and program, your child’s day will likely include the following activities.

Active learning: Active learning means students have direct, hands on experiences with people, objects, events and ideas. Children’s interests and choices are at the heart of High Scope® programs.

Small group time: Small group activities are chosen to emphasize one or more particular content areas but the children are free to use the materials in any way they want during this time. It allows for teachers to focus on individual skill development.

Large group time: Large group time builds a sense of community. Children and adults come together for movement and music activities, storytelling, and other shared experiences. Children have many opportunities to make choices and play the role of the leader.

Fitness through Active play: Children run, climb, swing, roll, jump, yell, and sing with energy. They develop fine and large motor skills while learning teamwork and building confidence. New outdoor playgrounds and indoor large muscle rooms offer age appropriate equipment rain or shine.

Child directed learning: Activities at the learning centers allow for exploration and discover at your child’s own pace.

Rest time:Rest time helps children relax and prepare for more learning and play. Soothing music and a relaxing atmosphere provide just the right environment during this quiet period.

Meal and snacks: Meals offer an opportunity to practice social behavior and personal responsibility. Three healthy and delicious meals and snacks are chef made daily in our on-site kitchens. Featuring fresh fruits & vegetables, whole grains and fresh baked breads and muffins. A variety of hot and cold breakfast and lunch items are provided.
