This is extremely advantageous to the children for the following reasons:

  • We run a concurrent indoor/outdoor program with our Senior Group. As the year progresses with our Junior Group, there will be a portion of the day where a concurrent indoor/outdoor program will be operational in preparation for Senior Kinder. 
  • Children are far more settled in the indoor/outdoor program.  Happier, as children can self select where they would like to be.
  • For children with SPD or sensory overload issues, in relation to noise and busy spaces, they can learn to manage and regulate their feelings and emotions by removing themselves from these uncomfortable situations.

Hats and Clothing

We have Jack and Jill logo bucket hats, t-shirts and windcheaters available for purchase online through EduThreads. 

  • adjustable bucket hat – $11.75
  • t-shirt – $14.00 
  • windcheater – $22.50 

Hats and Sun Protection

We kindly ask that families provide a broad brimmed hat for their child at orientation time, that will remain onsite at the kindergarten for the year.
We also ask that parents/guardians apply sunscreen to their child before entreating the Kindergarten during the months of the year when sun protection is recommended. We have a sunscreen station in our foyer for families use. This will be reapplied in the middle of the day.
If your child requires their own sunscreen, we ask that families provide this to one of our educators at the beginning of the year, we will label this and store it at the kinder for your child’s personal use.

Food and Allergies 

At Jack and Jill we encourage and promote healthy eating and a wrapper free lunchbox where possible.
As we have children at the service with allergies we ask that no nuts or nut products be brought into the service. 
We ask that families please provide a packed lunch and a separate morning snack : fruit, cheese, crackers, vegetables.
