Jack & Jill Children's Center is a non-profit organization that provides family oriented early childhood education and support to strengthen working families of Broward County. The accredited program supports the intellectual, emotional, physical and social development of young children.

Jack & Jill Children's Center (formerly Jack & Jill Nursery) was founded in 1942 by the Junior League of Greater Fort Lauderdale to provide child care for the children of working mothers whose husbands were at war. As the profile of families changed to more single parent households, more stringent requirements for government assistance and fewer support systems for families, Jack & Jill evolved to a community-based program with a community-based board of directors. Over the years, Jack & Jill has provided more than 13,000 children 1 million hours of child care.

Throughout our history, the mission and purpose of Jack & Jill has remained unchanged: to break the cycle of poverty for children of lower income working families in Broward County through the provision of family-oriented child care services and family intervention and support.

Jack & Jill now serves 170 children ages birth to five years old in our new, state-of-the-art Halmos Family Building. We are open year round, from 7:15am through 5:45pm to serve the needs of working parents. We realize to help a child we need to embrace and support the entire family.
