Ethos and Values
Our aim is simple - to provide the right physical and mental environment for every child to reach their full potential.
We have refurbished the entire nursery and meticulously adapted our indoors and outdoors to support our aim for every child to reach their full potential! Designed to let each child explore and grow at their own pace, our homely and friendly indoors complementing the green, natural and adventurous outdoors, provides the perfect, fun and creative environment.
We believe that there is no ceiling for the quality of childcare we provide and will ensure we keep raising the bar by working together with the children, parents and the staff. We are be guided by the comprehensive national guidance on Pre-Birth to three and the Scottish Government’s Curriculum for Excellence.
The great outdoors
Many studies have already shown the benefits of spending time outdoors. We have utilized our vast outdoor space to provide just that! In the early and later years of childhood, spending time outdoors supports the development of healthy and active lifestyles through physical activity, movement and freedom.
Playing and learning outside will give children contact with the natural world and offer them experiences that are unique to the outdoors. These include learning about the environment, understanding and respecting nature and being exposed to different types of seasons. Our aim at Tiptoes is to provide the most natural environment with abundant time spent outdoors for your children to play, grow and most importantly have fun!
Our outdoors is a maze of fun especially now that it is entirely redesigned. The future wee architects will be designing the next constructions in the sand pit, mathematicians counting in the pebble pit, the chefs making a range of delicacies in the mud kitchen, the farmers growing their own vegetables in our veggie patch and the explorers enjoying campfire marshmallows. We ensure kids have access to the outdoors all year round. We will provide puddle suits in the wet and snowy winter months and shaded cool areas for the warm summer months. Of course when the elements are not favourable or the 'wee' like a cosy rest then the indoors await...
the cosy indoors
Purpose built, state-of-the-art, interactive and fully equipped the entire indoors at Tiptoes has had a facelift. We have chosen natural materials through out to make sure hearts and minds are both thought provoking and stimulating with calm areas where children can enjoy some 'me' time!
Rest assured every day in Tiptoes is guaranteed to be fun!
