Programs

The primary goal of the programs is to provide a safe, healthy, supervised environment for children. The focus of the program’s content is intended to compliment the children’s other daily experiences.  The entire program of instruction includes those motor, creative, manipulative, imaginative, rhythmic, language and science activities and experiences that tend to promote effectively the physical, mental, social, emotional, aesthetic, and spiritual development of children of early childhood age & school age.

Self-directed and teacher-directed studies include science, math, language, social studies, fine arts, computer use and physical activities.

 

Religious, as well as other cultural values will be shared with children through stories, songs, prayers and principles of sharing in play and social conduct.  No attempt is made to prejudice a child against the beliefs of his/her parents; however, the atmosphere and objectives of the Day Care are distinctly Christian.

Outside play is part of the daily program – weather permitting.  Children cannot be left inside during outside time due to inappropriate dress since all staff are needed outside.

​Infant's Class

 

We would like to welcome you and your precious little bundle to our infant classroom.  Often, we find child care to be a new experience for most infant parents, so we try to put your mind at rest and answer most of your questions at the beginning.

 

All infants are on their own individual feeding and sleeping schedules.  A weekly schedule of activities is followed to help in the development of language and motor skills according to the child’s age.  Some of the things that the day includes are: songs, stories, floor activities, rocking, cuddling, hugs and lots of love.

​Toddler's Class (1 & 2 year olds)

We would like to welcome you to our toddler classrooms.

 

At this point, all toddlers are on a regular eating and sleeping schedule. A weekly schedule of activities is followed to help in the development of language and motor skills according to the child’s age.  Some of the things that the day includes are: songs, stories, art activities, motor development activities, outside play, cuddling, hugs and lots of love.

​Preschool Class (3 to 5 year olds)

We would like to welcome you to our preschool classrooms.

 

Your child will be assigned a sharing day each week.  We encourage you to help your child choose an item of interest.  Please put your child’s name on the item.  Do not send things in glass containers.  Please do not allow your child to bring toys on other days.  Jack & Jill is not responsible for lost or broken items.  Also, children should not bring money to the day care.
