Tiny Toes offer excellent preschool nursery education in Southampton for children between 3.5 and 5 years old. We’re very proud to have such an outstanding preschool team who are not only fully qualified with broad experience, but who are completely dedicated to the children. Our priority is to help your child excel in their preschool education, as this is such a critical time in their learning.
Our supportive preschool team reinforce positive attitudes towards learning on a daily basis. Tiny Toes’ preschool facility is fully equipped with all the materials and activities the children need for the different stages in their preschool development. Our approach is holistic and aims to develop the whole child. The belief is that a child’s early years, from birth to age 6, are the period when they have the greatest capacity to learn and independently develop their own interests.
Unlike many other nurseries, we are fortunate in that our preschool room is dedicated to school starters the following September. This allows a clear, focused approach to making sure all of our children are very ready for joining reception class at their chosen school. Every child in preschool is preparing to go to school, which makes the transition as smooth, happy and comfortable as possible.
Our preschool year culminates with the children attending a graduation ceremony to celebrate the progress and achievements they have made since joining us at Tiny Toes.

At our preschool nursery, we like to promote a healthy approach to food and exercise. During the time your child is at our preschool, you can be reassured that they’re getting a nutritious balanced diet. All of our food is locally sourced in Southampton and the surrounding areas and freshly prepared daily by our own in-house chef and assistant. Every meal is home cooked from scratch, enabling us to be confident that we provide the least number of additives possible. This also allows us to cater confidently for all allergies.
