Information about the setting

Jelly Babies Pre-School and Nursery was registered in 1993. It is managed by a voluntary committee and is on the Early Years Register. It operates from a hall and various rooms within a church building in Longbridge, Birmingham. The building is accessed either via steps or a ramp. Children are also able to use an enclosed outdoor play area. The setting opens five days a week during term time, offering morning sessions for children aged three to four years and afternoon sessions for children aged two to three years. Nursery sessions are from 9.15am to 12.30pm on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and Thursday from 9.15am to 12.45pm. Pre-school opens for afternoon sessions on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 12noon to 2.30pm and Thursday from 12noon to 2.30pm. Children of both age groups can attend on a Friday between 9.15am and 12noon. Children attend for a variety of sessions. There are currently 24 children attending who are in the early years age group. The setting provides funded early education for two-, three- and four-year-old children. It supports children who speak English as an additional language. The setting employs eight members of childcare staff, all of whom hold appropriate early years qualifications at level 2 and 3. The setting is also a member of the Pre-School Learning Alliance and has achieved recognition as part of their accreditation scheme. It also receives support from the local authority. What the setting needs to do to improve further To further improve the quality of the early years provision the provider should: enhance the already excellent outdoor learning environment further to enrich and maximise children’s opportunities to investigate the natural world so that children continue to achieve at the highest level.
