Faculty and staff at Jack & Jill believe that young children approach learning in different ways, and they are dedicated to knowing each child as a unique individual with his/her unique set of attitudes, habits, and preferences to their interactions and explorations. Therefore, we have created a school environment that is rich in opportunities to explore materials, events, ideas, and relationships. We believe that when teachers focus their attention on childrens strengths and abilities, it empowers them to follow through on their interests purposefully and creatively. In the process, children develop trust, initiative, curiosity, resourcefulness, independence, and responsibility C habits of mind that will serve them well throughout their lives.
