Your children are transported to School in our minibuses Elliott, Bertie and Lily Sue which are comprehensively insured and are fitted with adequate car seats depending on child's age and size.

At both St Fidelis Catholic Primary School and Northumberland Heath Primary School, we are lucky to have our Before and After school club on the school premises. The children are offered exactly the same as they are at the nursery settings, so nothing changes.

During all school holidays, we offer care for your children. We take trips to local parks, zoos, wildlife centres, beaches and so on. We do not believe in boredom, there is always something to do!

Nursery Education Entitlement: Description on JGS Stelling road

If your child is entitled to the 15 hours free Nursery Education Entitlement, you can be rest assured that there is no better place than Jacqueline's Gems to get them school ready. We have a yearly program that we have designed to educate and promote the best practice in your children so that when it’s time for them to leave us to join reception class they will be better prepared than most. Jacqueline's Gems is a real alternative to a nursery setting within a school. We offer more flexibility with our hours and have fewer children, so your child will be given even more one to one time.
