It all starts with our people

Tiptoes Nursery and Pre-Schools employ over 22 gradates, 38% of staff, with a further 6 more studying towards a degree qualification in early years (well above national standards). That’s up to between 2-5 graduates per Tiptoes nursery. As the staff educate themselves and understand the importance of it, they know how important it is to you and your child as well. We are delighted and proud that all our staff can lead, educate and interact at the highest level with all Tiptoes children.

A New report out 10th December 2020 by the Education Policy Institute and the Nuffield Foundation confirms settings which employ a graduate are linked with improved outcomes for children which last up to the end of primary school, you can read that report in our blog area.

Here at Tiptoes we genuinely want our nurseries to be the best and we want nursery experiences to be memorable and fun. We realise that it is vital that we earn the trust and confidence of you, our parents and that you are happy with what we do and how we do it. Together we can produce happy and confident children who enjoy living in a culture that nurtures and values the importance of a happy childhood and gives children the opportunity to maximise their full potential and become well-rounded citizens of the world.
