Welcome to Jack and Jill Nursery!

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.

Our nursery

Jack and Jill are 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 with a fabulous ‘Big Hall’ and 2 further rooms. 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.

Our priorities

  • Safety and welfare
  • A secure, calm and caring environment
  • Learning-by-doing and learning through fun!

By providing a positive, supportive environment with lots of engaging activities, our hope is that each child leaves us happy, confident and bursting with enthusiasm; ready to take on the challenges of school life and a whole new world of learning.

Our Aims

  • To create a happy, safe and stimulating environment.
  • To encourage each child to develop to his/her full potential.
  • To accept and treat each child as an individual.
  • To acknowledge that the early years from birth to six are vital. Every child needs opportunities to develop self-confidence, self-esteem and a positive attitude towards the people around them and towards learning and play.
  • To introduce the child to the activities, toys and learning materials which promote independence, concentration, social skills and which encompass a variety of cultural aspects.
  • To ensure each child has a concrete foundation of language, literacy and numeracy skills.
  • To ensure that from a solid foundation, the child grows to be confident and a competent learner for life.
  • To ensure that each child feels nurtured and an important member of the group.

Jack and Jill are registered with OFSTED to care for up to 55 children from 6 months -5 years.
