In Pre-School we provide a warm, nurturing environment for your child to learn through play. Fun, love and plentiful activities are at the heart of everything we do.  With our support and opportunities, your child will have the right environment to grow and flourish.

We have a purpose built facility where our sole focus is providing excellent quality childcare for children.  Your child will develop their social and teamwork skills and grow in confidence and independence.

We follow the early years foundation stage curriculum, planning activities appropriate for our children and then tailoring them to the needs of individual children.

Each half of term we follow a theme and weave this into our activities. For example we have used themes such as food or other countries, and based our art, number and physical activities around them. 

We have lots of outdoor opportunities, with 3 different areas for children to access.  One of these areas is covered, allowing us to be outside in all but the worst weathers.

We try to have special events to fit in with our themes and events going on in the world around us.  For example, we have celebrated Chinese new year, St Georges day and Comic relief.  These are really engaging for the children and really stick in their minds.

Our sessions run Monday to Friday, 9-12 and 12-3.

I just want to say a huge thanks to you and all  the team in helping my son settle in to Teatimers. This is the first time he has been in a nursery environment and we were very nervous about how he would settle.

He is coming out at lunchtime absolutely full of all the fun he has had, and I am so grateful to you all for that. 

This morning he walked in with his favourite monkey and not only did he get the cheeriest welcome as usual, but I also heard a greeting for the monkey too. It might seem such a small thing to remember a child’s toy’s name, but for me that is the sort of caring and personal touch that sets Teatimers apart.

We both feel so confident and happy with leaving him in your care. Life is always so hectic, but I was so touched today by how he was treated when he arrived that I had to email to let you know.


The term after your child turns 3, they become eligible for 15 hours funded care from us, which equates to 5 sessions.  The process of applying for funding is quite straightforward, as we have to do most of it on your behalf.

Come and see us

We are always happy to show prospective families around.  We believe that you should look at several settings to find the one that is right for your family.  We will give you a prospectus and application form for you to fill in if you like us.

Thank you so much for all the amazing support you guys have shown Maddie and continue to do so. I can not express enough how impressed I have been with Teatimers.  The personal approach you have taken in order to set her up for school in September and the additional help to gain her confidence and ability to improve at an amazing speed has been second to none. I would highly recommend you to anyone who asks.

How to apply for a place 

You can go on our waiting list by filling in an application form at any time from birth onwards.  We do recommend you come and have a look round – you can always come for another one nearer the time.

The term before your child starts, we will arrange a taster session for them (and you) to join a session for an hour or so that they can understand what “Pre-School” is all about.
