Hello from Sarah Drummond

Welcome to Jelly Beans, an Ofsted registered Montessori Pre School situated in the leafy suburbs of Hockley in Essex.

Jelly Beans opened in 2004 from my home in Rochford. In those early days there were just three children, including my daughter! Today Jelly Beans has grown into a thriving day Nursery and two Pre Schools, with over 190 children and a strong demand for places.

That demand has been created by the high quality care and nurturing my team provides, assuring mothers and fathers of a secure, stable and safe Nursery environment that combines significant indoor learning with outdoor activity, varied play, and rest periods at the right times.

Jelly Beans offers your child the Montessori way of learning, with plenty of opportunities to explore and discover from the world around them in a structure which will give them both ability and confidence when they come to start their formal schooling.

We understand how important it is for you to feel right about the nursery you choose for your child, so come and visit us and see how we work. I can assure you of a warm welcome.

Sarah Drummond, Head and founder
