Objectives of Jack & Jill Pre-School
The main objective of the Preschool is to create a caring and happy learning environment to meet the needs of all children. We strive to achieve a stimultaing, creative atmosphere with well planned play alongside education as part of the child's healthy and happy development.
Jack and Jill Pre-school is located in a purpose-build building with a playroom, a reading room, office, toilets and kitchen facilities. It has recently revamped the outside area to create a stimulating all-weather garden. This includes a sensory area, astro turf adn a veggie patch where children can grow both vegetables and flowers, as well as playhouses and trikes for them to enjoy role play. The Preschool has also use of the school playing field.
