Little Tinkers News

Coronavirus update 

Hopefully everyone is still keeping safe and well.

Our plan from June 1st is:


We will remain open as we have been for the group of key children in the main house. 


Stacy will be opening the Big Tinkers classroom from 9am-4pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, with a 'bubble' key group of children who have already requested sessions. We are asking parents to drop children at the gate so that no adults are coming onto the decking area or into the classroom. 


If you are looking to send children back to Tinkers at the end of June or the beginning of July, please could you email (rather than phone) and let us know which sessions you would like. When we have an idea of numbers we can make a plan to move forwards.  

We will of course continue to ensure regular hand washing and good hygiene practice as well as risk assessing for the safety of children and staff. You can read our Risk Assessment by clicking on the box below and if you have any comments or questions, please email us.  

Please continue to check the website regularly as we will update this when there are any changes.

Head over to our Home Learning page for some ideas of  fun things to do with your children. We will add more ideas regularly so keep checking!

This week, our Shedder friends from Age Concern Heathfield and District have begun building their new workshop and our lovely new office/staffroom is open for business! 

We have also planted a sunflower for each of the children in the new key group who are coming back this week.

On Friday, Ellie delivered cakes (kindly made by Chloe-Ann and her mum), flags and sunflowers to our friends at Young at Heart to celebrate VE Day.

About us

Little Tinkers Nursery School offers full daycare in a safe, friendly, stimulating environment.
Exciting and varied activities are planned enabling the children to learn and develop by experiencing things that interest and excite them. They are encouraged to lead their learning so can develop at their own rate with the support of friendly and qualified staff.

Monday to Friday 8am - 6pm


Little Tinkers Nursery is split into 3 groups.

Tiny Tinkers is the baby room.

Little Tinkers is for the toddlers.

Children start Big Tinkers in the September before their 4th birthday as they start preparing for school.

Meet our staff

Each child is allocated a key-person who will get to know them and promote their confidence and independence.

Staff treat each child as an individual, promoting inclusion, and their potential is recognised preparing them for the next step.
