Our experienced team nurture, engage and challenge our children. We work with families to ensure that every child’s needs are met so that they feel settled, valued and confident.



Children are able to explore the environment and engage in lots of different activities, sharing their thoughts and ideas. 



We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage and fun, creative and interesting activities are available based on the educational needs and development of your child.

Our History

Tilehouse Street Pre-School and Nursery was started in 1968 as Tilehouse Street Playgroup, brought upon from the needs of the local community for safe, secure and fun environment for children to learn independently and away from their home environment. When Ofsted was introduced, we became a registered child care provider and a member of the Early Year’s Alliance.  In April 2016, after listening to the requests of our parents we became Tilehouse Street Pre-school and Nursery offering the opportunity for children to remain with us until they started Reception.

What Our Families Say About Us

Lara, existing parent at Tilehouse Street pre-school and nursery.

"I couldn't have asked for a better start for my son's learning journey. He has had the best time, made new friends, learned so many new things and has grown in confidence beyond what I could have ever imagined or hoped for. He has had the very best preparation for school and I can't recommend this place highly enough. If you are looking for a pre-school or nursery place for your child then look no further, there is nowhere better."

"The range of activities the children take part in is fantastic. They have weekly yoga and cooking lessons, they take part in science experiments, they go on regular outings and have lots of visitors coming to talk to the children from the police, fire service and many more. The range of toys and play equipment is amazing and parents are often invited to take part in activities which are really lovely."

“Our daughter has been at Tilehouse for nearly two years having experience in both caterpillar and butterfly room, I cannot say enough good things about Tilehouse street, the staff are extremely attentive and have guided my daughter so well in navigating a nursery setting. She has always been so happy at Tilehouse street and can't wait to tell me about all the things she has learnt! Staff are all so lovely and there at all times to help and support my daughter.”

“My youngest son started at Tilehouse Street last September. We had never been apart and he found the separation difficult. The staff have been so amazing at making him feel safe and happy. It is a very nurturing environment where the children are genuinely cared for. I have seen so many positive changes since he started here and he is becoming more confident all the time and has learnt so much. I love how the staff will cuddle him if he’s sad and quickly find ways to distract him. He is involved in so many new fun and exciting things each day and he always has a great time. The regular updates that are sent home are really lovely because you get to know more detail about what the children have been up to and they send lots of photos and I can see that my son is having a really great time. It is really hard to trust someone else to look after your children who are so precious but I have been so impressed with everyone and how they have cared for my son. I highly recommend Tilehouse Street to anyone looking for a pre-school or nursery for their children.”

“Tilehouse street is a wonderful preschool with small class number, allowing the staff to really engage and help children thrive. The staff are caring and patient. We particularly love the daily updates and photos on the family app. There are always new things to learn, play and explore from Arc Farm visits or even bean growing. The kids have a great variety to enjoy and learn. A great place for kids to get ready for school.”
