Ages: 6-weeks through 3 years old

Jack & Jill Center’s Infant/Toddler program is designed to offer a safe and secure place where children will be able to explore, learn new skills, build positive relationships with teachers and other children. Additionally, Continuity of Care is practiced to ensure children remain with the same teachers/ caregivers for multiple years, creating secure, stable attachments.

 

Preschool / Volunteer Pre-Kindergarten (VPK)

Butterfly1

Ages: 3-5 years old

Our programs work to ensure all children enter kindergarten ready to learn. We value learning through play and believe this encourages children to explore their world through language and the opportunity to make choices. We place emphasis on the process (the doing) rather than the product. Our mission is to help each child reach their highest potential intellectually, socially, physically and emotionally as well as nurture a genuine life-long love of learning.

Program Highlights

Each day at Jack & Jill Center is filled with opportunities for both active involvement and quiet reflection. 

The Creative Curriculum®

We implement The Creative Curriculum® in all classrooms. This curriculum is comprehensive and research-based and promotes exploration and discovery as a way of learning.

Florida Early Learning and Developmental Standards

The Creative Curriculum® is aligned to the Florida Early Learning and Developmental Standards Birth to Kindergarten which outline what children should know and be able to do at each grade level. 

Conscious Discipline®

This evidence-based comprehensive program utilizes everyday events rather than an external curriculum, and addresses an adult educator’s emotional intelligence as well as a child’s. Teachers learn to respond to daily conflict in a way that transforms it into an opportunity to teach students critical life skills.

Continuity of Care

We ensure children remain with their teachers for more than one year and administer the Ages and Stages® Developmental Screening tool for all children enrolled. We provide quality, nutritious meals and snacks for children, including formula and baby food at no additional cost to infant parents. Finally, our school participates in the School Readiness Program and we are an approved Florida Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK) provider.
