We are a small and homelynursery in Talke, Stoke-on-Trent set up by family and friends who have worked professionally together for many years. We have years of experience in different childcare settings including nurseries, schools, residential schools and working with children who have special education needs.
As well as our professional experience, we also decided to set up hilltop Tots because of our personal experiences of childcare. When we came to look for childcare for our own children we experienced some of the many difficulties that parents experience, including cost, flexibility and quality of care provided.
This is why we decided to set up Hilltop Tots; a Nursery that is a little bit different
What makes Hilltop Tots Different?
A small group setting: This enables us to provide a more personal approach in a relaxed environment, with spaces for only 6 under 2's and 8 over 2's.
This means that we can spend less time completing paper work and more time providing the time and attention that your children deserve and to really get to know you and your child; tailoring our care to be individual to your needs, wishes and feelings.
We also find that being a smaller setting encourages children to settle in easier and quicker, and to form positive relationships with children and practitioners.
We provide a balance that enables children to prepare for school in a group setting, whilst supporting their personal, social and emotional development in a cosy and intimate environment that encourages our children to learn, explore, have fun and reach their full potential.
Affordable child care: We understand that childcare is expensive. Yet we know how important it is for all children to have the opportunity to go to nursery, to get the best start in life and to encourage them to reach their full potential. This is why we provide the most affordable childcare in the area with no limits set for free 2, 3 and 4 year funded places. (If you are not sure if you are entitled to funding or how to apply for it, we would be happy to go through this with you)
Extracurricular activities: All our fantastic Extracurricular activities including dance lessons with Jenny Brennan school of dance, Baby Beats music sessions and El Club Espanyol Spanish lessons are included in your fees at no extra cost.
Flexible: We will always try to be as flexible as we can and offer full day, morning, evening and school day sessions.
Sensory room: We are one of the only nurseries in the area to have a sensory room. We really believe in the benefits of sensory rooms to develop and encourage children to use their senses and to provide a calm and relaxing environment.
Where are we: Hilltop Tots Day Nursery is in Talke, Stoke-on-Trent and is easily accessed via Newcastle-under-Lyme, Kidsgrove, Alsager, Audley, Chesterton, Crewe and surrounding areas due to our location next to the A500 by Freeport Talke. We are at Unit 3, Hilltop Business centre, St7 1pw, which used to be Hilltop Primary. It is a secure site off the road with a private car park.
Keeping your children safe: as well as being on a secure site, our building has an intercom system which enables us to verify a person's identity before allowing them access to the nursery.
Our unique facilities: We have designed our indoor facilities to inspire children to have fun and enjoy learning. We have lots of unique facilities including our sensory room, indoor secret reading garden and tech station.
We also encourage children to explore the world and to be active as much as possible. To encourage this we have lots of exciting outdoor areas for children to discover, including our tree house, outdoor stage, role play village, sensory garden, pirate ship and much so much more for your to explore.
