Educational philosophy and administration

Jack & Jill follows the research-based, play-based Creative Curriculum, which covers social, emotional, cognitive, language, literacy, math, and physical domains. Teachers use Mind Up and PBS for additional social-emotional instruction. Learning goals include self-confidence, self-control, decision-making skills, and problem-solving skills, and children stay with the same teacher throughout their early years to provide continuity of care. One community member commented that Jack & Jill is “dedicated to high-quality education and applies state-of-the-art curricula and best practices.” Parents shared that their children have “learned so much,” are “ahead academically,” and “learned to read and write so well.” Jack & Jill CEO Heather Siskind holds a master’s degree in Social Work and has nearly 20 years of experience in early childhood education. She previously worked at Baptist Health South Florida and served as President of the South Florida Association for the Education of Young Children. A member of the community called Jack & Jill “an oasis of love and kindness.” Parents describe the staff as “sweet,” “helpful,” “caring,” and “great.”
