Tiptoes Bricknell Nursery opened in August 2011 and has forged excellent links with all the local primary schools, in particular Bricknell, Appleton and Cottingham Croxby.

As with all our nurseries, it is purpose built. Everything is designed across two floors with all age groups having access to the outside space.

The nursery is very spacious. Our babies and pre-toddlers are all housed on the 1st floor, each in their own area. Our toddlers and pre-schoolers are on the ground floor, with direct access to the outside area.

Bricknell is conveniently located along Bricknell Avenue, so is great for anyone who commutes between Cottingham and Hull or who lives in west Hull’s HU5 area or the east side of Cottingham.

The security and safety of your children is paramount. To gain access to Tiptoes each parent is given an individual four-digit PIN which is a personal four-digit number. Our internal systems monitor and log every single time the front door is opened, from inside and outside. With additional security features, such as an alarm if the door is kept open longer than is deemed necessary. Security cameras monitor all the main inside and outside areas. Access to all children’s areas are via additional safety gates.

Hi everyone, my name is Vanessa and I am the manager at our site at Bricknell.

I started at Tiptoes in August 2016 and became the manager in December 2018. During my time as an active practitioner I have had the most experience working with babies and toddlers. I have my level 6 in Childhood Studies, myself and my team got an OUTSTANDING OFSTED Report in April 2019 which is one of the biggest achievements in my career so far.

The most rewarding part of my job is being able to help children grow and achieve to their full potential daily and being able to provide the best play and learning experiences. As a manager I believe the most important aspects is working alongside parents in order to ensure home life and nursery life is compatible, and having good team ethics between myself and the staff in order to ensure the best experience is being delivered for each child within our care.

A little information about myself:

I was born in Portugal and lived in South Africa for 10 years of my life before moving to Hull. Tiptoes was my first ever full-time job. My loved ones are the most important aspect of my life, and I am currently in the process of moving in with my partner into our first home together. I love travelling and being able to see the world to experience different cultures.

Hi everyone, my name is Kim and I am the deputy manager at our site at Bricknell.

I joined Tiptoes in June 2016 and became the deputy in December 2018. I have an extended Level 3 in children and young people’s workforce. I was the deputy working alongside Vanessa when we achieved our OUTSANDING OFSTED Report in April 2019 which we are all still very proud of. I have the most experience working with babies and pre-school which I still currently run with my pre-school staff team.

As a deputy manager and the room leader in our pre-school room the most rewarding part of my job is that I love watching the children achieve their milestones and keeping them safe. I love being apart of the children’s learning and growth daily and getting each child ready for their school journey. I am the nursery SENCO and have a passion for working with children with SEN and love helping them achieve new milestones.

A little information about myself:

I live with my partner of 11 years and our two dogs.  I have a younger brother and an older sister, I love spending time with my family and friends. I love going on trips, different excursions and being out in nature with my dogs and partner.
