weeks late, but we have acheived so much over the summer - completly
building the brand new setting and getting it ready, we would like to
thank all our parents and families for there patience, and especialy
there support, which has been tremendous.
Our new location is a million times better than our last home, we have
lots of open space for the kids to play and explore, on street parking
in abundance, and very easy safe access.
Because of the space and location, we are planning to expand the
services we provide, and will be announcing our exciting new programme,

Who helped build our Nursery.
We could not have built the new nursery
without Dojo Community Project's support, however there are some special and unique people who gave their
time, resources and support to the project without reservation,
without there individual contributions none of this would of
happened, we would like to give them a huge Thank You.
Catalyst for the whole project was Paul
& Sammy at DARE Professional Audio, from the outset they were
supported by Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands, who handled the
Architectural work, Planning Application and Building Regulations
throughout, keeping us on track - architect David Mackay, the support
by everyone at LDS has been a revelation for a company of their
stature, and a genuine inspiration.
Various trade people gave time to the
project, either at reduced rates or free, Milan Ilic was always on
hand to advise, and Kevin Roberts made sure that things will stay
dry from a roofing point of view. Dave “The Digger” Grenfell did
exactly that and Mark Mead made sure we have Water and Heating, and
finally John Butler – Electrician who brought us power, security
The effort put in by every individual
can not be underestimated, many of which are not from the area, but
have a strong belief in actually doing something to help others
rather than - just talking about it, because of this - the area will
certainly be a better place to live and grow up.
We at Dojo, Jellybean and the wider community
will go some way to repaying these altruistic efforts, by ensuring that
the centre flourishes - a shining light of what can be achieved
at a grass roots level.

Jellybean Nursery was founded in
2000, located in the Soho Hill area of Handsworth Birmingham, we
are a long established, small family setting with
approximately 30 children at any one time, we strive to achieve the
highest standards for our children, and in 2012 we received the
highest Quality Assurance award in Birmingham, when we were awarded
the Effective Early Learning Quality Assurance Award, our nursery has
also completed an Early Years Healthy Setting Program.
In Septemeber 2014 we moved to our new building on Claremont Road, Soho Hill.
a caring, nurturing environment to which all children feel happy and
enjoy coming to nursery. The positive free flowing nursery
environment enables each unique child to build good, positive
relationships. Being able to reach each area of learning within free
play in the setting helps children to enjoy a wide range of
activities and to reach their own set targets.
Jellybean's every child is treated in their own unique, individual
way, we believe every child is different and have their own character
and temperament. We communicate with children in many different ways
and using Makaton is one of our projects - which all of the children
enjoy. We believe that listening to children is important and each
child should be listened to and valued.
about cultures and religions is something we pay great attention to,
we have an equal opportunities leader within the setting, we have a
setting based SENCO who works continuously alongside the area SEN
team to identify and support any children with learning difficulties
and / or disabilities.
opportunities are very important in nursery and we understand that
people have different needs, views, cultures and beliefs that need to
be treated with respect.
“We genuinely believe that our
children should receive the very best in Care, Play and Education, our
awards and qualifications show that we deliver this
consistently Year in - Year out
