Welcome to Jack & Jill Preschool
Servicing Lithgow and Surrounding Areas For Over 35 years
Jack and Jill Preschool is a community-based not-for-profit preschool that caters for forty-eight children aged three to five years, per day. We specialise in educating and preparing young children for formal schooling through a diverse, stimulating, challenging, unique and high-quality educational program. We are licensed and regulated by the Department of Education and Communities.
Children are programmed for individually and their interests and specific needs are incorporated into the educational program. Each child also has their own individual portfolio of photos, completed work and planned experiences specific to their needs and interests. Our indoor environments support interest and exploration based learning through the establishment of interest areas and small learning exploration stations. Jack & Jill Preschool has a state of the art playground that has been installed and designed by a professional landscaper that specialises in developing children’s playgrounds. We are constantly upgrading to meet the needs of an ever-evolving community.
Our outdoor environment has many natural elements including plants, rocks, sand and bark fostering explorative play. There are a range of medium sized trees that provide interest and shade and a grassed area for ball games. Our outdoor play space has interactive musical elements that were added recently as part of our service improvements.
We have introduced an environmental theme within our playground with a rainwater tank and encourage the children to care for and enjoy the outdoors in a resourceful and natural way. Another of our service improvements were to install café blinds to the play area outside the Kookaburra Room, to provide the classes with an outdoor space even on the coldest of Lithgow days. The Pre-school is set in a lovely quiet area, so come on out and see for yourself, meet our friendly staff and have a talk to the many parents who have entrusted their children to our care. EVERYONE WELCOME.
