At Jack & Jill Preschool, we believe that learning is a creative activity which is built on ones experiences. Young children need the opportunity and time to explore, experiment, reflect on their experiences, develop their physical capabilities and interact with their peers. It is our goal at Jack & Jill Preschool to provide each child with materials and activities that are developmentally appropriate in a place that is safe, non-threatening, and most importantly, FUN!

Our Preschool Director has an Elementary Education Degree and Early Childhood Endorsement. Our assistants have past experience and continued education for Early Childhood through the AEA (Area Education Agency) and the CCRR (Child Care Resource Referral). Also, the Preschool participates in the Q.R.S. (quality rating system). 50% or more of the teaching staff are para educators. Each teacher strives to bring out the in best in each child.
