Jimage5913ollytots aims to help children build a foundation of security and stability, whilst playing in a caring and creative environment. Each child will be given individual attention because of the high ratio of adults to children (1 adult – 3 children – this is a legal requirement).

Jollytots accepts children from birth to 10 years – children in nappies are always welcome but encouraged to bring their own nappies and wipes. We are proud to welcome children from all ethnic backgrounds and we encourage parents to get involved with sharing their cultural differences.

image5828All children with additional needs are most welcome as long as the group is able to fulfil their requirements and support their development. Jollytots has a non-smoking and anti smacking policy in all the groups.

We have an open-door policy. Parents are welcome to come along and visit their children at any time as long as it does not affect/upset any of the other children in the group.

Jollytots believes that parents play a very large part in the success of their child’s development and therefore encourages a working partnership. This includes discussing any problems that they may have with the leaders concerned. Should a satisfactory solution not be reached, then all parents are welcome to contact either Vanessa on 0208 386 6897or Ofsted direct.

Jollytots believes that:-

  • All children are unique and should be treated accordingly.
  • That a child’s first educational experience is a lasting one.
  • That from a happy background, success grows.

We encourage all parents to bring in their own freshly cooked food during the weaning process as we feel that this is safest for the babies as they will be more used to parents home cooked food. If this is a problem then please discuss and we will provide food for you.

We offer a hot cooked lunch. If your child is due to enrol in an afternoon session, then please visit during lunch time at least once to make sure you are happy with the way the meals are being delivered. All groups provide fruit for dessert. All meat served is kosher and never mixed with milk in order to cater for our Jewish and Asian clients. If you have any other group2dietry requirement then please speak to us as we will happily fulfil this also.

Supper:- Parents provide their own supper.

Water is available in individually allocated beakers throughout the day.

Milk bottles are given at set times according to the individual child’s needs.
