About the employer

Tots 2 Toddlers Day Nursery has been established in Anders Hall since 2014 and is registered with Ofsted on the Early Years' Register to provide care for children from 3 months to 5 years old. We are a small nursery with a friendly team of 7 and take childcare very seriously. Facilities at our beautiful setting includes our large hall for toddlers and preschool children, a smaller hall for the babies and an enclosed garden for outdoor play providing additional opportunities for the children. We have developed a 'Mini Forest School' garden to extend their learning and fun. We follow the Early Years' Foundation Stage (EYFS) which sets the statutory standards for the learning, development and care of children from birth to 5 years old. We do this by learning through play, sometimes led by an adult but also by following the children's interests.
