Rated OUTSTANDING by Ofsted

At Tots 'R' Us Nursery we believe your child's early years experience should be happy, active, exciting, fun and secure; a place that supports their healthy development, care and learning needs. 

Children in the Early Years Foundation Stage (the time in your child's life between birth and five years) learn by playing and exploring, being active, and through creative and critical thinking which takes place both indoors and outside.

Our sessions cater for children who are 2 years up to school age and help lay the foundations for healthy development and future learning. We provide a physically active learning environment with a wide range of activities to engage your child in learning while playing and having fun.

Children are encouraged through our activities to use all of their senses to explore their environment, whilst developing their social skills and building relationships with others. Self-confidence, self-esteem, independence and speech and language development are actively promoted. 

Sessions are delivered by highly qualified and professional staff, along with a dedicated team of volunteers.

Places must be booked. Please contact us for more information on 0191 581 2399 or enquire online
