Our school day
Children are typically dropped off at Jelly Beans at 8am, to suit working parents.
The morning session involves up to four hours of learning, rest and play, with a built in mid-morning snack time of fresh milk and water, fruit and quite often our home made bread!
Valuable time is spent in the outdoor classroom, so children are required to arrive at school with warm outer clothing (waterproof coat, fleece and boots).
The morning session finishes at 12:30, although for children who are booked in for a full day session, 11:30 heralds lunchtime, always a popular break in the school day!
The afternoon session starts at 12:30 and runs through to either 3:30pm or 6:00pm for the children staying for tea. The afternoon is punctuated with a mid-afternoon snack of fresh milk or water, fruit and our home made bread.
There is a quiet story time and rest session for younger children to ensure the pace of the school day doesn't become too overwhelming.
At 4:45 the children staying later are provided with a healthy high tea until the day finishes at 6:00pm.
