Jack and Jill Pre-School has been providing childcare in Old Hall, Warrington since 1988 and we are a Ofsted registered ‘GOOD’ provider. We are a registered charity with the Charity Commission and are a committee run provision which means we are not for profit all our profit is fed straight back into the preschool and being committee led means you get your say in how we manage our funds. The committee is made up of parents, grandparents and professionals who all have an interest in keeping the charity running to provide excellent and affordable childcare. All parents are invited to join the committee and are required to have an enhanced DBS check if they wish to join and register with Ofsted as an associated member.

We run two sessions per day: 09.00-12.00 and 12.00-15.00
Sessions cost £12.60 each or £25.20 for a full day. We do not have cooking facilities so children attending full days or afternoon sessions will need to be provided with a packed lunch.

You can contact us any time to arrange a visit and pick up a registration pack and we do recommend putting your child’s name on our waiting list up to a year before their start date as sessions are high in demand and limited.
A healthy Snack is provided on each session and snack menus are changed each term to offer a variety of foods for the children to try. Snack is chargeable at £1 per week.
An optional extra curricular charge of £10.00 per term is in place which enables us to carry out outings to museums/libraries, we have sports and dance sessions weekly and also carry out Forest School sessions in the nearby woods.

Your Child’s Learning Journey
During your child’s time at Jack and Jill Pre-School they will learn through play following the EYFS curriculum. We focus on 7 different areas of learning and use an app called Tapestry to track their progress. When they start at Jack and Jill your child will be assigned a key worker member of staff who will be responsible for your child’s learning progression and getting them school ready, this will also be your first point of contact who will get to know your child and family really well. Tapestry is a great app for staff and parents as you can see what your child has been up to at preschool and you can also upload things that they have been up to at home such as holidays, special celebrations or even writing their name. This helps us to get a whole picture of your child’s current stage of development and plan their next steps of learning.
