Our very popular Pre-school offers flexible childcare throughout the year, offering optional sessional, full day or extended day care for either term time only or all year round which includes holiday club.


We have an established team of professional Early Years Practitioners who have been providing ‘Outstanding’ learning and development opportunities for 0 to 5 year olds through play and structured activities.


We aim:

To provide high quality learning experiences through play in a safe, secure and stimulating environment within the framework of the EYFS, working towards ‘school readiness’ and future progress.


We value:

  • Each child as a unique individual

  • Parents as their child’s first educator

  • Positive relationships and working in partnership

  • Diversity and promoting equality

  • Developing respect for each other and the environment


Jack and Jill Pre-school started in 1982 as a committee run community playgroup in Westbury-on-Trym, Bristol. It has evolved into the present Pre-school with four directors and in 2009 we moved to our current purpose-built premises to accommodate the expanding needs of the school.


Our unique Pre-school has an excellent reputation in the local community and surrounding area. We are renowned for our:

  • Highly qualified and committed staff which include Early Years Graduates and Early Years Professionals offering a wealth of experience and individual skills to provide a diverse learning environment.

  • Excellent resources and a stimulating planned curriculum.

  • Small group activities which include Outdoor Learning and languages and maths activities which develop a positive attitude to learning.

  • Positive and effective partnerships with parents/carers, sharing in their child’s time at Pre-school.
