Located in the Abbey UCC Church

Daily Schedule

The teachers plan a daily schedule which follows a structured routine.  A monthly schedule (calendar) showing the units of study each week is given to the parents at the beginning of each month.

Holidays

Jack and Jill follows the majority of the public school calendar holidays.  There are a few exceptions.

Illness

Parents have always been very conscientious about not exposing their sick child to others.  Please continue this.

Emergencies and Medical Concerns

Please keep your emergency information UP TO DATE. We must be able to contact you or your caregiver if your child becomes sick during class.

Birthdays

We encourage the celebration of children’s birthdays.  Let us know in advance if you wish to send a special treat.  We recommend mini cupcakes, cookies, or any other favorite snack.  Please avoid all nuts and peanut butter!!

Snacks

We provide a daily snack of fruit/vegetable, crackers, pretzels and occasionally, cheese.  All food allergies should be noted on the registration form.

Weather Conditions

If Huntingdon Area schools are closed due to inclement weather, we are also.  If Huntingdon has a two hour delay, we start at 10:00 AM.  All classes meet at least three times per month.  Not all snow days are made up.

Speech

Speech screenings are provided by an Intermediate Unit professional.  If you have concerns, please make a written request for a screening.

Discipline

Positive forms of discipline that will not humiliate or frighten will be utilized to prevent a child from harming himself or others.  Jack and Jill Nursery School strives to build self esteem and motivate a child from within.

Clothing

Please dress your child in comfortable shoes and play clothes.  We play outside as weather permits.  Children may use tempera paint, glue and play dough during each class.  Please be sure to label all coats, sweaters, and jackets with your child’s name.

Extra Clothes

Accidents happen no matter what the age of the child from spills to soiled pants.  The nursery school has extra clothing on hand.  Please wash and return as soon as possible.
