About us

Jack and Jill Childcare is situated in a quiet residential area in Shiphay, on the outskirts of Torquay, close to local schools and Torbay hospital.  The nursery is privately owned and family run and we provide quality care in a homely setting for babies and children from birth to school age.

We work with a large team of qualified and dedicated Nursery Nurses and encourage all our staff to continue their professional development.

We are open 51 weeks a year and open from 8.00am – 6.00pm Monday to Friday. Earlier starts may be available.

We care for up to 52 children per session from birth to 5 years. The children are cared for in bright and airy playrooms according to their age and developmental stage.

Jack and Jill Childcare offers a safe, caring and stimulating environment for children to learn through play and to develop an awareness of the world around them. We believe in encouraging a child’s natural inherent curiosity as they discover new experiences.
