Educational Goals

0-2 YEAR OLDS

We aim to go above and beyond for our families, starting with the smallest ones of all, our Toptotz babies. At this age, children are exploring and establishing their sense of themselves as individuals.

We offer a calm, stimulating yet inviting specialised baby room here at Toptotz which caters for 6 babies at any one time.When children are ready to transition from the baby room, we have a tweenie section downstairs to further their development.

They have already experienced a huge amount of learning and development in the first two years. Our compassionate and simply amazing staff in the baby room ensure all children get the most out of their day, incorporating stimulating activities, arts and crafts, music and movement and much more!

We have a spacious outdoor baby pen with a UPV sun protected shelter, allowing our little ones to enjoy lots of outdoor play.

Language takes many leaps forward, and children enjoy making strides in personal, social and emotional development, together with an increase in their understanding of the world around them.

Activities are planned by our fantastic team according to children’s individual needs, balancing their need for routine and security with their desire for an increase in curiosity and exploration.

2-3 YEAR OLDS AND OVER

We provide a structured routine to help our wonderful toddlers prepare for the biggest step of all, big school! – With this said, the fun never stops. Our newly developed outdoor play area is fenced with activity boards, 2 mud kitchens and best of all .. a permanent tee-pee structure to encourage lots of different role play activities for our keen explorers.

All activities are planned in advanced to ensure all areas are covered and they are progressing from one phase to another.

The children take part in several activities throughout the day from free play to adult lead fun-packed activities. From fine motor activities like cutting and sticking, threading, mark making .. to yoga classes, music and movement sessions and of course story telling, as we have many book worms here at Toptotz. This ensures they have an action packed, fun filled day.

We have a bright and airy conservatory including wide sliding doors which allows the feel of a flowing indoor/outdoor classroom. The children can use this facility for messy play, sand and water play in a clean, vibrant environment whilst inside but feeling like outside, with our new shelter off the conservatory covering us from the elements.

In the pre-school years children’s concentration increases and they are ready to respond to the challenge of teamwork and group activities.  Our priority is to make learning a fun, exciting and enjoyable experience.

Our wide range of educational equipment and toys are carefully chosen to develop language, intellect, imagination, emotional, physical and social skills.

Out on our driveway, we have a driving track and a zebra crossing which enables the children to practice their gross motor skills on trikes and bikes whilst learning the green cross code. Hopscotch is also painted on the driveway to encourage physical activity whilst learning number recognition in a fun and energetic way.

Promoting independence is a necessity at this stage and we encourage this through activity wall boards (laces, buttons, zips etc) and always giving the child a choice, allowing them to make own decisions.

Our Pre-school education incorporates the 7 areas of learning.  These are as follow:

  1. Personal and Social Development, Well-Being and Cultural Diversity
  2. Language, Literacy and Communication skills.
  3. Mathematical Development.
  4. Knowledge and Understanding of the World.
  5. Physical Development
  6. Creative Development.
  7. Welsh Development

We work towards and include all of these as part of the Foundation Phase planning.  Theme planning is done termly on a monthly, weekly and daily basis.  This ensures each child covers all areas of development and makes good progress.

    My daughter willow has been coming for just over a year, and loves the staff so much she has come on so much since starting. Her speech is fantastic for a 2 year old and that is thanks to the amazing staff, we can't thank you enough for looking after our sassy princess ❤️ I could not recommend the nursery enough

  • Harriet Wilkes

    The best nursery we could have ever wished for. My first daughter attended for over two years and my second daughter has been there for two years and will be starting school in September - bittersweet as we’ve built a wonderful relationship with TopTotz and it will be sad not to be a part of it any longer. Both girls loved their time there and would recommend this fabulous nursery to anyone. From their garden time, their walks and their activities/arts and crafts - all of it so creative and magical for the children. Debra is an amazing lady - we’ve been made to feel welcome from day one. A special mention to Brooke and Ashleigh who are an absolute credit to this nursery. Thank you to all of you for taking care of our girls xx

    Thank you for all the love and kindness you have given my son in his time at Toptotz. He has grown in so many ways since being in your care and guidance which we know will ford him in good stead when he starts at ‘Big School’. I am sure he is going to miss you all very much, but please be assured, you have not seen the last of him as we will be back for visits!!

  • Miss R. Coslett

    To Everyone at Toptotz, Thank you and Goodbye! Thank you so much for all the fun times, and all the help you have given me during my time at Toptotz! I have had a wonderful time, I love you all and will miss you millions x x. p.s. You can’t get rid of us that easily, see you all in a few weeks with the other one! x

  • Miss. L. Fensome and Mr. S. Jones

    A working mother is always at the mercy of those she has entrusted her child. I am so lucky that I can trust you all so completely, especially with the person who is closest to my heart. You cared for him not only well, but sweetly, loving him as I do when we are apart. I cannot bear to think what I would do without you all. Thank you for the care and love you gave, you will all be truly missed.
