Welcome to Tilehouse Street Pre-school and Nursery



• With specialist pre-school and nursery provision under one roof, we can support your child’s growing confidence and learning needs effectively from their first steps towards independence at 2 to the start of reception.

• Our online journal system means that you will receive daily photos and updates about your child’s unique, personalised learning journey as it unfolds throughout their time with us.



• Our setting and room numbers are small, with a maximum of 25 children on site at any one time. This means that our close knit, friendly team really get to know you and your child, and your child will build strong, stable relationships with others while they are with us.

• We encourage the children to connect with the wider world through our regular outings, partnership projects, visits from community figures and stay & play events.



• We believe in a child-centred approach, and will work hard with families and carers to make sure that each and every child’s needs are met so that they feel settled, valued and confident.

• Our experienced staff nurture, engage and challenge our children to make sure that they are prepared for life beyond Tilehouse Street both academically and socially.
