Tinkers news



Dear Parents and Carers, 

Please could we remind parents and carers that any child who has tested positive for Covid must have 2 negative tests before they return to Tinkers. If you or your child are ill, please take a test and don't come to nursery or pre school unless the test is negative.

We understand that the tests are not pleasant, particularly for the children, but we do have a responsibility to continue to protect everyone in the local community as well as our staff here at Tinkers. 


Thank you again for your support over the last 2 years of the pandemic. It has been a difficult time for everyone and we are thankful that, due to restrictions being followed, we have been able to stay open and support our local community.

The staff  will continue to test regularly for Covid to help our setting to continue to stay open, as obviously we would have to close if staff become ill. 


We are also continuing to operate the same system for drop off and pick up and continue to ask parents and carers to wear a mask when entering the entrance hall. 


Thank you again for your kindness and support, and hope that we can return to some sort of normality soon. 

Ellie and the Tinkers Team.

Our Tinkers staff had a training session to update our safeguarding knowledge. The training covered all areas of safeguarding children, including any new legislation. 

We also discussed aspects of e-safety.  Here are a few links that you may find helpful. 

A reminder that we are still asking parents and carers to please wear a mask when they come into the entrance hall when dropping off and collecting children and to remember only one family in at a time.

We will continue to operate the one way system for collecting and dropping off children at the main building, and to pick up and drop children at the gate for Big Tinkers, to support our social distancing rules.

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.

Thank you again to everyone for your support and kindness. Stay safe and be kind.

In line with the latest Child Protection and Safeguarding guidelines  published in September 2020, we have updated our policy and this can be found on our Policies page (Helpful information). All our policies are updated annually (or sooner if legislation dictates). 

Head over to our Home learning page for ideas of fun things to do. If you have any ideas you would like to share, email us and we can add them too. 

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.
