Tree Tops Childcare
TreeTops is Thornaby Pavilion’s childcare provision which offers a warm, welcoming and safe environment for your children – and good news, we have spaces available!
In December 2019 we achieved an Outstanding across all areas Ofsted Report. Click here to read the report.
The examiner from Ofsted stated “Children show they feel special, safe, valued and supported by staff in the nursery.”
For the last two Ofsted inspections we have rated as Outstanding and are very proud to do so.
Tree Tops is a registered childcare setting, offering outstanding care for children aged 2 – 4 years. The nursery is based at Wrightson House within Thornaby Pavilion’s Leisure Centre which is conveniently located in Thornaby’s Town Centre.
We have an exciting programme of activities to stimulate and develop children to their full potential.
We have two well-equipped playrooms which offer children a friendly and educational environment.
We also use the adjoining sports hall, soft play areas and visit the local children’s centre outdoor area so children can take part in physical activity.
Friendly, highly skilled staff
Our team of qualified staff are ready to welcome you and work in partnership with families to ensure all children’s needs are met. We will keep you informed with your child’s progress.
“Teaching is outstanding and staff are superb at continually promoting children’s learning.”
At Tree Tops we…
Explore – through numbers, shapes and sizes
Cook – healthy snacks
Create – art and lots of lovely messy play!
Investigate – through books and stories
Opportunities – for outdoor play
and much, much more!
“All staff consistently give the highest priority to the safety of children and effectively support children’s growing understanding of how to keep themselves safe and healthy in the stimulating environment.”
Tree Tops supports and implements Operation Encompass.
Operation Encompass is a new initiative that will provide early intervention support for children affected by domestic abuse. Its success will be dependent upon close partnership working between the police and schools, academies, colleges and nurseries and the sharing of accurate domestic abuse information where children have been present, witnessed or been involved in such abuse.
