Little Tinkers have been awarded the Tooth Safe Gold Award. Our entire team have undertaken extensive Oral Health training, understand how this impacts Early Years, and the nursery operates with this in mind.

Tooth Safe

Emotional wellbeing is at the heart of our nursery offer, especially after the pandemic. Our management team have completed Mental Health First Aid training, and a number of our team are also qualified in youth mental health, to help ensure our entire Little Tinkers family remain happy and settled.
