I knew from a young age that I wanted to work with children, so when I left school in 2009 and threw myself into a childcare course and I knew that I had made the right decision for my career path, as I qualified as a Level 3 in 2011 and have worked my way up to becoming a manger. I have later gained a level 5, have experience in working with children aged 0-5 and cannot think of anything else I’d rather do. I enjoy everyday in nursery and love watching the children have fun whilst gaining knowledge and new skills from the many amazing activities and opportunities we provide here as well as learning just as much from them everyday.
We can guide you through every step of your childcare journey and help you discover everything you need to know about our nursery.
We’ve always been very happy with the staff at Tots n Tykes and the service they provide. We know the staff know our children really well and they always plan activities that keep them interested and excited. It’s reassuring when you have to be away at work knowing that your children are cared for in such a happy environment.
Dropping Harry off at nursery for the very first time was a nerve wracking experience for me, but not for him! The staff at Tots an Tykes have been so kind, welcoming and supportive and as he has begun to develop well spending the days with them and the other children I can see we definitely made the right choice to send him hear. We’re updated daily on everything he is doing and couldn’t be happier with how well he has settled in
Tots N Tykes is a safe and happy environment where children can have fun and grow. The staff have always been very supportive to us as parents, when faced with new challenges. the additional activities offered to the children, such as forest school and swimming has meant that they are kept interested, until it’s finally time to make that next step to school.
We love to get outside at Tots n Tykes Nursery! We have substantial gardens providing opportunities for outdoor learning across all areas of the curriculum.
As well as access to our fabulous outdoor play areas, children of all ages enjoy regular walks in the local area. We take children out in groups, come rain or shine, to take part in a variety of activities set up by our staff. Wherever possible we try to take our indoor learning outside. During our time outside we teach children how to assess risk, problem solve, share, gather and utilise from nature.
Our youngest children are often seen out in our triple buggies enjoying the fresh air, sights and sounds of the local community. We use high visibility vests to keep children safe when out on trips away from the nursery. All children leave wellington boots and waterproof clothing at nursery so they can be appropriately dressed for all seasons!
We are committed to being an environmentally friendly nursery, making changes wherever we can to make the world a cleaner place! We are committed to teach our children about their environment and the effect we have on it in our day to day lives.

Our nurseries provide an extensive range of resources to encourage children to learn through play. We favour naturalistic learning resources and make fantastic use of our outdoor equipment, promoting free-flow and Child-led learning.
Taking part in fundraising activities helps children to learn about others that live differently, or are in disadvantaged situations and understand how we can help them. Some of the fundraisers we have taken part in are: Children In Need, sponsored toddles, Macmillan coffee morning, superhero days and garden parties.
Our nurseries offer free Parents can bring their child for a couple of hours first, gradually introducing the child to a new environment. Settling in sessions are aimed at helping your child to adapt and become more familiar with the staff and children, but also help you adapt to their surroundings and feel safe and secure when your little one joins us.
As part of our curriculum we are committed to ensuring children are physically active for a minimum of 3 hours per day. Physical Development Champions at each nursery create and design specific activities based around movement, raising the heartbeat and exercising the cardiovascular system.
Here at Tots n Tykes Nursery we have our very own qualified Nursery Cook who creates nutritionally balanced rolling menus and snacks on site.
We are happy to cater for children with differing dietary requirements and of course, adapt the menu to suit all stages of weaning for our youngest children.
Our menus are designed to give your little one the very best start in life. We make this possible by supplying our children with home cooked nutritional food, bursting with fresh fruit and vegetables and all the essential ingredients necessary for healthy physical and mental development.
Whenever possible we source our food locally and organically, including seasonal vegetables and fruit into our menus. As we prepare the food on-site it means we can also cater for individual dietary requirements, food allergies or coeliac disease.
We are happy to cater for a whole range of dietary/religious/cultural requirements. Please speak to our Nursery Chef for more information.
We do not add additional salt or sugar. Where possible we purchase products with reduced salt and lower sugar.
Our staff are trained in First Aid and our Nursery Chef is experienced in catering for allergies. You are more than welcome to meet with our Chef to discuss your requirements.
