Fully Qualified Staff

Our highly-qualified, DBS checked staff have a wealth of Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) experience.


Jelly Tots Nursery is the best choice we made for our son. He is loved by the teachers like he is their own. His social, motor and vocabulary skills have noticeably improved with their help in a short space of time. The staff are very attentive and offer support not just to the student but also the parents if needed. They may not be a big corporate chain like busy bees, they are better. They are family.

Sensory-Rich Learning

We benefit from an independent and well equipped sensory room. Sensory play encourages discovery and independent thinking, as well as inspiring imagination and creativity.


Whether your child is joining us at a very young age, or pre-school age, they are sure to benefit from the experience that our sensory room brings. Our sensory room will help invoke all of their senses, stimulate cognitive understanding, and invite them into another dimension of learning.


Our Childcare Team

The Jelly Tots Day Nursery staff our the nursery’s most valuable asset. Our Childcare team are highly qualified and experienced at providing exceptional childcare. We strive to hire the best available staff for each position and we offer continuous skill training for all of our team.


Message From Ana

I would like to introduce myself as Jelly Tots Nursery owner and former manager. For as long as I can remember I have always worked with children. I had the privilege to open my own nursery back in 2014 after completing a level 3 qualification. In 2019 finished my Early Years Foundation Degree while managing the nursery.  


During my time as manager I have experienced many changes and challenges. As the years have passed, I have never lost my enthusiasm and passion. I feel extremely privileged to be part of children’s life. I am continually learning and meeting new challenges as the setting continues to develop. Best of all, I am surrounded by an amazing team for whom I have great appreciation. 

As a parent I understand that for many parents, the prospect of leaving your child at nursery for the first time can be frightening. This is why we give you and your child as much time as you need to feel at home.

Our Team network includes talented people from experienced classroom practitioners, forest school trained, Montessori experienced and foreign language. They all share a passion for education and children.
