We've been in Jenkintown for over three decades working with children from our neighborhood and surrounding communities.

Please join us in thanking and wishing Mrs. Norbert well as she retires this year! Read her announcement below: 

Dear Parents,
After 36 wonderful years with JUMP teaching 2's, 3's and Pre-K and as its director since 2001, I am retiring at the end of this school year. I will certainly miss the school, the children and the staff. The school has been such a huge part of my life.

There are so many people to thank, especially you the parents. Thank you for supporting the school and intrusting your little ones to our care.
I would also like to thank the JUMP Board: Chairperson Gigi Burns, Christine Bloom, Lindsay Gahr, Chris Bell and Novice Ezell.

Novice is also moving on since her last little one will be going to kindergarten. Novice started as our fundraiser chair in 2008 and moved into the position of Treasurer and my right arm. Her deft skill with figures resulted in a well organized financial approach. JUMP will truly miss her warm hearted and giving spirit.

I would also like the thank Paul Lucas who I have always referred to as "the man behind the scenes" - for going way beyond his job description to help the school. His help and kind spirit has been greatly valued. 
Last but not least, I would like to thank the staff who made each day seem easy and who are so dedicated to the well being of the children.

I am pleased to announce that our next director will be Patti Kennedy, our current Pre-K teacher. Patti has been with JUMP for 25 years. She has seen JUMP evolve into a close knit family - meaning Board, staff, students, alumni and families - and I know she will continue this culture. JUMP will continue to provide the welcoming, quality, affordable and nurturing education to all pre-schoolers. 

It is with the fondness of memories and a heartfelt love to you all that I now say farewell.
