- Does my child need to be potty-trained to attend Jack & Jill?
Children do not need to be toilet trained to enroll at Jack & Jill.
- How can I schedule a visit?
Families curious about the co-op experience or interested in enrolling at Jack & Jill are welcome to visit our classes and meet Teacher Kim. Please contact our Membership Chair to arrange a time or ask any further questions.
- How often will I be in the classroom with my child?
Parents average 1-2 working days per month assisting in the classroom. For more information about co-op parents’ role, please see Parent’s Responsibilities.
- How will my time in the classroom be scheduled? What if I need to reschedule?
Each group determines how they will schedule their time in the classroom at the beginning of the school year. If a parent’s availability changes and he/she can’t work, it is his/her responsibility to find a trained substitute. Generally, this is as easy as sending an email or text to the other class parents.
- What are the tuition costs at Jack &Jill?
Tuition rates vary for each class: Group A is $57/ month, Group B is $60/month and Group C is $83/month. For more information about tuition and enrollment fees, please see School Fees.
- My child has allergies/food sensitivities. How can this be accommodated?
Ensuring the health and safety of all children at Jack & Jill is our first priority. Our school is peanut and tree nut free. Other food sensitivities are addressed on a class by class basis. For example, if a child in Group C has a dairy allergy, Group C snack times will exclude dairy items.
- When can I register my child for classes?
Jack & Jill has open enrollment throughout the year on a space available basis. Open enrollment for the following school year begins March 1st. If classes are full, students can be added to the waitlist at any time. For more information about registration please see Registration.
- Can I bring my child’s sibling to school with me?
Due to class ratios and insurance policies, babies 9 months old and younger need to be registered at Jack & Jill (free of charge) if they will be in attendance at class time. Babies MUST be carried in front packs. Special arrangements must also be made in advance with the Group Leader to avoid Adult/Child ratio problems.
- What if my child has special needs?
Jack & Jill has made accommodations for children with sensory sensitivities, autism spectrum disorders, and dietary and medical needs. Feel free to speak to Teacher Kim if you have questions regarding your child’s needs. If it is concluded that Jack & Jill isn’t the best place to meet your child’s needs, Teacher Kim would be happy to offer referrals.
