The Jack and Jill Project
This year, the kids of Free to be a Child early childhood program have explored lots of poetry, including many beloved nursery rhymes, during weekly “poetry teatimes.” We have also spent a lot of time exploring favorite places in our community, especially “the hill,” where we like to run, roll, sled, and tumble up and down. When we thought about the possibility of creating a “gift for the hill” for Florence Night Out, a connection emerged: Jack and Jill also went up and down a hill! What if we put Jack and Jill on our hill? And so the Jack and Jill project was born. Free to be a Child invites you to participate in this interactive collaboration of two beloved favorites of childhood: Mother Goose and the hill.
Free to be a Child is a Reggio-inspired program for preschoolers and homeschoolers located in the heart of Florence. Children aged 2 through 7 have spent the last few months preparing their version of “Jack and Jill Went Up the Hill” to share with their community.
