Jack and Jill Nursery
We are now open!
If you would like to come and view the nursery, we open for show-arounds and trials after hours. Please call us to arrange.
We welcome babies, toddlers and pre-school children aged 3 months to 5 years.
Jack and Jill Nursery has provided quality childcare since 1970. We are committed to providing a safe and happy environment in which children can play, learn and develop through a wide variety of exciting and engaging experiences.
Jack and Jill is situated in the heart of Corfe Mullen village and occupies the former Methodist Church. This offers a great ‘open-play’ space of approximately 2000sq foot. The nursery was completely refurbished in summer 2014 and has a new playground, new play areas, new toilets and new equipment. The rooms are light, spacious and fresh! There is a car-park for drop-off and collection.
The nursery offers 3 main rooms:
- The Big Hall is our pre-school area for children aged approximately 3-4
- The Toddler Room is for children aged approximately 2-3
- The Baby Unit is for babies aged approximately 3 months to 2 years
We have 2 playgrounds for the children:
The main playground is available for all the children and offers a fantastic range of activities in different areas including digging and planting, cooking in the mud kitchen, water and sand activities, story corner, and balancing, rolling, throwing and wheeling activities.
We also have a smaller playground just outside the Toddler Room which offer free-flow outside play for our younger children.
