About Jelly Beans

Jelly Beans Montessori Pre School is situated in Plumberow's Primary Academy in Hamilton Gardens, Hockley and is a privately run Pre School.

For children aged 2-4 years, the Pre School has very close links with Plumberow Primary Academy and therefore the transition from pre-school to school is natural and seemless. Children are able to use the school grounds including the playing field and swimming pool.

 Jelly Beans Pre School is a sister school to Jelly Beans Nursery, our popular day care option for toddlers, as well as a useful holiday club venue for working parents.

Behind our success is the vision of founder Sarah Drummond, a dedicated Montessori practitioner, who remains actively involved in the day-to-day running of Jelly Beans:

My aim is to provide high quality early years education and care, in a safe and warm environment, which follows the philosophy and method of Maria Montessori.

We nurture each child's curiosity, encouraging children to have fun and to flourish, becoming confident and independent learners with a thirst to learn more.  Our staff are highly qualified and promote an environment of respect, where manners, good behaviour and sharing and supporting others play an important role.

Ultimately, every child which comes through our Nursery will leave us having discovered the world of learning with enthusiasm through careful guidance, with the principles of self learning safely embedded.
