You can find the Jack & Jill School down a stone courtyard on a quiet, tree-lined street on East 16th Street between Rutherford Place and Third Avenue. Each classroom was completely renovated for the 2013-2014 school year.  The classrooms are well-equipped with areas for block construction, dramatic play, musical expression, artistic exploration, and multifarious, developmentally appropriate activities. In addition, each classroom has a quiet area for exploring books as well as a hands-on area for simple science experiments. Our outdoor play yard provides a unique climbing structure and an open area for tricycle riding. On bad weather days, we utilize an indoor gym space.
