About Tiddly Winks Nursery, Redhill, Surrey 

 Our Vision


 

At Tiddly Winks we understand that you want to be sure that your child is having a fun and exciting time with us, and also that you want to know a little about us . 

We are careful to take on people who understand our ethos, and have a natural desire to enhance every child's developmenmt in the nursery. Whilst a qualification provides a baseline, we try to employ people who have an enthusiasm and a positive outlook. It's inspiring to have a positive team around, who are all eager to work and promote what's best for the children.

We are organised into three teams, one for each age group; when deploying staff, we assess and monitor each individual to ensure they are working with the age of children for which they have most understanding and empathy, as well as considering their  skills and experience. This obviously creates an enthusiastic, and happy approach to the learning environment offered, and enables the children to achieve at the highest levels.

Our team of professional nursery practitioners are confident and experienced in using the learning environments and their skills to plan a balance of adult and child initiated activities, with appropriate opportunities for each child to play and explore, think critically and be active and creative learners. Practitioners promote their high expectations of the children using positive and progressive language and praising each child's individual achievements.

We all enjoy our work and are dedicated to ensuring that each of the children love coming here as much as we do.

"The curriculum is only as good as the people who offer it to the children"

Toilet Training

As we all know at some point in their lives, every child will begin to toilet train.

We have produced a short guide in how we can work together to support your child with this new transition!

In our experience the best way to support a child through to successful toilet training is to work in partnership with you. Many of our successful families have mentioned that they did so by these steps.
