Jumping Jellybeans Pre-school practice relates to the philosophy of Reggio Emilia.

It is a socio-constructive model, influenced by Lev Vygotsky, which states that children co-construct their ideas and knowledge through the relationships they build with others.

Activities are presented using natural resources and the outdoor environment around the child. Practice merges with the Early Years Foundations Stage Curriculum (2014). Each child is respected and valued as an individual, with their own fascinations, dreams and wonders.

During the Thursday morning session, children take part in Forest School Approach activities, with the session taking place in local woodlands and heath lands.

Children connect to nature, and are inspired to live a naturally healthy lifestyle that builds resilience, confidence, independence and self-motivation – all the characteristics they need for positive well being and to be successful in life.

Reviews

9.9 Jumping Jellybeans Pre-School has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.948)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Jumping Jellybeans Pre-School is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 13 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Jumping Jellybeans Pre-School in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 7 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. For each review the Day Nursery / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Day Nursery receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating.

    The Average Rating of 4.948 for Jumping Jellybeans Pre-School is calculated as follows: ( (147 Excellents x 5) + (8 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 155 Ratings = 4.948

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. A Positive Review is defined as any Review with 'Extremely Likely' or 'Likely' in answer to the question 'How likely are you to recommend this Day Nursery to friends and family?'

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

    1. 4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.

    2. 1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Day Nursery with 50 registered maximum number of service users has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.

    3. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

    The 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Jumping Jellybeans Pre-School is based on 7 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 5.2 positive Reviews (26 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 5.2 Target Reached = 1

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

Jumping Jellybeans Pre-School is a fantastic pre-school. My little one settled in really well. The teachers are amazing and always available if you need them. The children learn so much. The outdoor activities are really good as children still need to be children and this pre-school lets them by making leading fun. Would not choose a different pre-school and would definitely recommend to everyone.

My son only started Jumping Jellybeans in January and what can I say, he has learnt so much in just 1 month! The previous nursery my son went to wasn't 100%. It was as if he lost all confidence there and personally I didn't see him learning anything either. Since he has been here he has gained all of his confidence and he is back to being the bubbly, friendly, caring little boy I know! I can't rate this nursery enough and I'm so thankful for everything you have done in only 1 month. I'm looking forward to watching my little boy grow and learn with you all! 5****

Thank you for your review. We are thrilled that your son is happy with us and has gained back his confidence. It's our pleasure to work alongside him and watch him grow.

Our little one loves Jumping Jellybeans and her teachers are her best friends. Her main one in particular and our little one wants to share all her home activities with her too.
If any worries I feel I can talk and message so we work as a team.
Thank them all for this. It will be sad when school starts this year to say goodbye until her sister starts the following year.

Thank you for your review. We very much look forward to caring for your little ones' sister and watching her grow. It will be our pleasure.

This is the second year my daughter has been to Jumping Jellybeans and I wouldn't put her anywhere else. The range of activities and resources they have available to support children to achieve their next steps are brilliant. All staff members are lovely and are always welcoming. As a nursery worker myself and working in many settings, this setting is by far the best if the hours they offer suit your needs.

Thank you for your review. We are thrilled that you regard our practice so highly. We are planning to open more days and sessions in April/September 2017, and hope to be able to share the times with you in the near future, as soon as the plans are confirmed.

I have found Jellybeans to be brilliant for my 2-year-old boy in his first month. He has shown positive changes in his behaviour and his abilities already. The Keyworker has been brilliant with him and has created a nice bond already and has been informative and explanatory to me with his day to day activities and achievements as well as explaining the areas that need working on in a kind and positive manner. I am so glad I sent him to this pre-school and he loves it there too. If he has shown signs after a month, then I can't wait to see what three years can do! Can't thank the staff enough.

Thank you for your review. It's lovely to hear that you feel your Key Person is working closely with you. This always our aim, and it's great for us to hear that this area of practice is working well for us and you.

Being a working mum can be really hard but having a setting where you feel your child is loved, respected and valued makes life so much easier.

Our daughter's interests, thoughts, feelings and abilities are always taken into account and she thoroughly enjoys going to preschool.

Staff are clearly highly qualified and experienced this shows in all aspects of practice.

Although Jellybeans isn't a purpose built setting it is clear that staff always make the best of what they have when it comes to the environment. Activities are always inviting and exciting. Our daughter loves forest school and often takes us on forest school routes when on family walks.

Comment from our daughter "I love our posh table decorations, I feel good when I'm at preschool because I like school!"

Thank you for your review. And thank you to your daughter for her review. We are very happy to hear that she enjoys our lunch table decoration. We respect our children's capabilities to treat the crockery with care, so want to reward them by making the table look as nice as possible so they can feel valued and rewarded.

My son attended Jumping Jellybeans Pre-School for all of his nursery years, then my daughter joined him and is still currently there. I could not trust anyone as much as I trust the Jumping Jellybeans staff with my children. I will be extremely sad come July when my 4 years of seeing the friendly faces of everyone there finishes. Couldn't have asked for a better setting for my children to learn, grow and have copious amounts of fun.

Thank you for your review. It has been a pleasure to be part of your children's early years.

My child loves her time with Jumping Jellybeans. She gets to have fun whilst learning something new with her friends. They always encourage little ones to try things for themselves and because of this, my little one has come a long way. It will be a sad day when she leaves to go to big school.

Thank you for your lovely comments and allowing us the privilege of being part of your child's early years.

Excellent playgroup couldn't have picked a better one for my daughter to go to. She was lacking confidence but thanks to the amazing staff and especially the manager, my daughter's confidence has grown and she is doing amazing at playgroup.
I'm very proud of my daughter and what she has achieved so far. I feel as though she will be more than ready for school next year in September. We will both really miss everyone at Jumping Jellybeans when it comes to us leaving. I highly recommend this playgroup to anyone wanting to put their child into a loving caring playgroup.

Thank you for your lovely comments.

Both of my children have been to Jellybeans preschool and both settled in straight away. My nearly 7-year-old son still has fond memories of it.
It's the little touches like graduation ceremony for children upon leaving and a DVD of photo's of my child's time there when they leave which I love.
Jellybeans staff support in gaining children's confidence, support in learning but also allow them to have lots of outdoor/indoor play activities which is so important in a child's development. Highly recommended.

Thank you for your reccomendations, and feed back on our practice.

Love this nursery would not see my children anywhere else. Friendly staff that helped my children settle, the knowledge my little boy left with was unreal, helped him massively to begin school. My little girl was a little different settling but now doesn't like leaving and calls the teachers her friends, thank you all for the time you have given to them both. You are all amazing.

Thank you for your kind words. It's nice to know that your daughter regards us as her friends.

The staff at Jellybeans are incredible, the way they interacted with my son and all the great activities they do. If my son shows an interest in something they'll encourage him to explore it. I moved my son here after a not so good start at a different preschool, and wow what a difference. He looks forward to going to Jellybeans every time.
Can't recommend them enough.

Thank you for your positive comments. It is our pleasure to have your son in our setting and it's lovely to hear that he is happy being with us.

This setting is fab. I viewed all pre schools and nurseries in Canford Heath before starting my daughter two years ago on her second birthday. This one was by far the best. The staff are welcoming, the setting is in a rented hall which is set up and packed away each day. This allows the children to have a different set up of toys/learning tools each day. There is a free flow area, a quiet room and sleep area, a fab enclosed garden area. The setting is close to the heathland which is amazing for outdoor activities and learning. There is a real community and family feel to the school due to the owner taking pride in her business and her clients. Every child is important and no child is just a £1 sign.

Thank you for you review. It is heart warming to know that the practice in the setting come across as having a family feel, as this is very much our aim and ethos. We do consider every child to be a very special member of our Jumping Jellybeans family.
