Regular weekly outings

The whole of Jo and Mick's ground floor is dedicated to their tiney home nursery, creating a genuine home-from-home experience.

Children are encouraged to play with toys that ignite their curiosity and Jo and Mick build on these choices to broaden an understanding of the world around them.

Developing good manners and self-regulation is a big part of the education and care offered at Jo and Mick's tiney home nursery and they believe in the power of positive reinforcement and role models. Children learn how to care for their friends and be helpful and kind to those around them.

The light-filled conservatory playroom adjoins the well-equipped and secure garden area. Children also enjoy weekly trips to the local park to run around and learn about the natural environment.

The Child Experience at Jo and Mick's tiney home nursery.

At Jo and Mick's tiney home nursery your child will enjoy a variety of local activities, including Teddy Bear's Picnics, trips to Cosford Grange Woodland and the sites around Telford's Ironbridge.

As your child approaches the start of school, they experience fun activities in a school environment to prepare them for their transition.
