TINY TOTS Day Nursery & Out of School Club    

A little bit ABOUT Tiny Tots Prestatyn

Tiny Tots Nursery was founded by Tina Jones in 1972.

Until May 1995 the nursery operated on one level. A major expansion programme was undertaken, enabling the Nursery to operate on two levels to include a superb self-contained baby unit and toddler area on the upper level and pre-school play areas to the lower level. This enabled the nursery to provide a much greater variety of activities, creating a wealth of opportunities and experiences.

Tiny Tots Day Nursery is registered with the CIW under the Children’s’ Act 1989, providing quality care for babies and children of all ages on a full or part time basis. Registration is for 86 places – 68 children in the main nursery and a further 18 children in the Out of School Club which is located within the grounds. This Out of School Club also provides full day care for registered children during the school holidays. Since 2005 Tiny Tots has also run an Out of School facility within Trelawnyd VA School for 24 children in full time School.

The aim of the nursery is to provide a safe, happy and caring environment for young children to develop in and enable them to progress confidently towards entering mainstream school.

Tiny Tots is an active member of the National Day Nurseries Association (NDNA) with Tina being a Trustee for the past 20 years. In 2012 we completed the NDNA’s accreditation scheme E-QC and for this we were rewarded the highest level of achievement (level3) indicating Tiny Tots provides an exemplary childcare service for all our children in our care.

  • We open at 7am and close at 6pm, our main day starts at 8.30am and ends at 5.30pm, care required out of these hours is accommodated by prior arrangement.
  • All children who start the day with us from 8.00am or earlier are provided with breakfast.
  • All meals and snacks are freshly prepared by our cook Claire. Our menu is planned for a three-week period and a copy is enclosed within the booklet.
  • Tiny Tots offers an access to information policy where parents are invited to look at our policies and procedures and participate with suggestions for improvements.
  • Tiny Tots is registered with Estyn to provide LA funded early year’s education (Foundation Phase) as well as care to the children attending our nursery school.

Governments Early Entitlement Scheme/Foundation Phase:

The original Tiny Tots logo from the 70’s.

This scheme was set up by the Welsh Assembly to provide free part time education for all three-year olds for the parents who want it. The scheme runs from January to July allowing children to join this group the term after their third birthday.

The group known as Blue Group is run by Vickie and Sirena. A peripatetic teacher from a local School visits Tiny Tots on a regular basis to share her early year’s skills. This creates a partnership with school when the time comes for them to move on to ‘Big’ school.

The education provided covers all areas of the ‘Desirable Outcomes’ laid down by The Assembly for Wales, Department for Education, Lifelong Learning and Skills (information about these areas of learning are enclosed within this handbook)

All the areas of learning are delivered through play centred activities and experiences. It is well planned and carried out by a qualified and experienced team, motivated to ensure all children benefit while developing their social skills and learning through the medium of play.

Because of this funding we are inspected by Estyn in the same manner as Nursery Schools. The nursery is set in its own grounds, with a large garden and play areas to the rear giving the children ample space and freedom in which to safely play, especially during the summer months.


30 hours funded sessions

As from January 2019 we are supporting the 30hours funded childcare to all eligible 3 and 4 year olds. This scheme has been set up by the Government to help working families with childcare costs. Currently all 3 and 4 year olds can access 12.5 hours of government educational funded childcare term time and 30hours during school holidays for 48 weeks of the year, subject to eligibility and availability. To access the funding, you must check your eligibility on the Local authority website online. If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to ask us. Additional costs apply, contributing to the cost of meals and snacks.
