Our Philosophy

Our Achievements


Our Day

Every day at Rum Tum Tugger’s provides children with new and exciting opportunities. There are always routine events that make the foundations of our day. Meals provide the children with wonderful social opportunities to learn independence skills and help others to develop theirs. Rum Tum Tugger’s actively promotes Healthy eating and is able to cater for food allergies, dietary requirements and parental preferences.

During each half day session every child will have the opportunity to experiment, create and investigate. They will make choices, influence the events of the day and express ideas and feelings. 

The nursery is divided into 4 rooms. The Tiny Tugger’s 3 months to actively mobile; The Toddler Tugger’s Mobile to the term after they turn 2; The Mungojerrie’s 2 years to the term after their 3rd Birthday and the Rumpleteaser’s, funded to school age. A dedicated qualified room leader heads a team of staff who are responsible for the daily planning and implementation of activities which form the basis of each child’s care.

How We Work

Policies and Procedures: To ensure that every session runs smoothly and safely and to meet with current legislation and guidelines, we have a series of policies and procedures that we follow. These can be downloaded from the downloads tab. 

Mission Statement: Rum Tum Tugger’s Nursery is a community based facility providing the highest standard of childcare for children in the age range 3 months to 5 years. As a team we aim to ensure that the social, emotional and educational needs of each child will be met and provided for, using the best possible care and attention. Our objective is two fold. Firstly to give parent’s their first choice in childcare measured by the children’s enjoyment of the early years experience and secondly, to recognise that a child’s needs and safety are Paramount and must override all other considerations. Safeguarding Children Statement. Rum Tum Tugger’s Nursery are determined to take all necessary steps to protect children and young people from harm, both while in our care and those we have association with.
