Our Philosophy

Meeting Needs and Promoting The Love of Learning

We strive to provide our children with the nurture and security that they need in order to engage with learning effectively.

Tilehouse Street Pre-school and Nursery ensures that all children within our setting have their needs met. This enables them to develop a strong sense of self and self-esteem. Be believe in building independence and resilience, through support and nurture. 

All children are valued as individuals, they are encouraged to have and express opinions and learn through play, adult interactions, and trial and error. We build on each child’s interests and extend these through knowing all of our children and their families. 


We offer different experiences throughout the year that will extend learning to include the wider community.


Both of our rooms provide a calm more structured environment where our children can develop their skills and knowledge further in readiness for school.  We encourage them to take responsibility for their own learning and to develop their natural sense of curiosity and wonder to explore and investigate the world around them.

Secure children develop strong self-esteem and self-confidence, as well as strong sense of self and their own potential. We encourage all our children to celebrate their achievements, and to share their interests with their key person and their peers.
