Welcome to Jellitots Preschool

Jellitots is an independently run preschool, located in the beautiful grounds of The Old Pavilion, off Pound Lane in Marlow. We provide a varied and entertaining programme of activities each day in a safe, stimulating and nurturing environment, fulfilling the needs of each individual child. We believe children learn best when they are having fun.

Why Us?

The Early Learning Goals - Learning Through Play
Communication and language

We ensure children are given the opportunity to experience a rich language environment. This in turn will develop their confidence and skills in expressing themselves and enable them to speak and listen in different situations.

Physical development

We provide the opportunity for children to be active and interactive in order to develop their co-ordination, control and movement. We teach children the importance of physical activity and how to make healthy choices in relation to food.

Personal, social and emotional development

We aim to help children develop a positive sense of themselves and others. Also to form positive relationships and develop respect for each other. We develop their social skills and teach them how to manage their own feelings. We help them to understand appropriate behaviour in groups and also to have confidence in their own abilities.

Literacy development

This involves encouraging children to link sounds and letters and to begin to read and write. We ensure children are given an access to a wide range of reading materials to ignite their interest.


We provide children with opportunities to develop and improve their skills in counting, understanding and using numbers. We teach them how to calculate simple addition and subtraction problems, and to describe shapes, spaces and measures.

Understanding the world

We help guide children to make sense of their physical world and their community through opportunities to explore, observe and find out about people, places, technology and the environment.

Play and Learn!

Expressive arts and design

Children have the opportunity to explore and play with a wide range of media and materials as well as encouraging them to share their thoughts, ideas and feelings. This is done through a variety of activities in art, music, movement, dance, role-play and design and technology.

Our staff will be observing and encouraging your children every day and will provide you with valuable feedback to ensure we are meeting their needs. To help us with this we use a computer system called Tapestry which enables us to take photos and record what we see in the playroom and outside which we can share with you. This system also allows staff to record their observations within the 7 areas of learning so we can tailor activities to suit each individual child's needs and their own individual stage of development.
