Jackie Green together with her daughter Joanne opened Tot Town Nursery in January 1999. Their aim was to provide a warm homely nursery that Joanne would be happy and relaxed sending her sons to attend. We are a nurturing, family-run nursery providing Ofsted-regulated childcare for babies, toddlers and preschoolers.
• A happy, safe and welcoming environment for children aged 3 months to 5 years, including a dedicated baby unit
• Caring staff all qualified to Early Years Foundation Stage
• Fun, stimulating and secure indoor spaces and outdoor play areas
• Activities and learning aimed at helping each child discover and develop their individual potential
We are very fortunate to have a newly built children's playground with amazing outdoor play equipment which is situated within a 50 metres walk of the nursery. The large recreation ground enables children to go for a nature walk, picnic and play in the park which enables children to experience a different environment from their daily routine. The nursery hold their sports day at the recreation ground and their Teddy Bears picnic.
We offer drop off parking for parents. The nursery has multiple outdoor play areas.
The aims and objective of the Nursery are to provide opportunities for children to develop socially and emotionally and to enhance self-confidence, independence and heightened self-esteem. To increase self discipline and foster a growing awareness of the needs of others, to develop physically and to extend and refine control over physical movement. To develop intellectually gaining an increased control over language as a vehicle of expressing thoughts and ideas and to extend learning skills, knowledge and the formation of concepts.
