We’re extremely excited to bring Taylor’s Tots Nursery, an outstanding child care provider, to Dunston.

A newly redecorated and refurbished property, our space provides an environment in which your child can be as happy, relaxed and comfortable as they are at home. Our nursery consists of two floors, a specialised baby room, separate sleeping sections, age and stage separate garden areas, and much more. There are also spectacular rural views from all windows, giving the children that feeling of the outdoors.

Our unique teaching method helps your child learn through play and shared experiences. We love letting our kids explore and get messy. Learning is meant to be fun and encourage healthy development, and this is our ethos here at Taylor’s tots.

A family run business, managed by Sharon Taylor & her daughter Meg Taylor.

Taylors Tots prides itself on building top tier nurseries, we’re passionate about providing parents & children with quality childcare in a warm & stimulating environment, where children can be educated and cared for in equal measures. So often parents don’t have a choice when it comes to a nursery, due to lack of places or nurseries just not meeting the parent’s expectations and needs. We hope to change that with our vision for Taylor’s Tots Dunston.

Child Initiated Play

We pride ourselves on providing your little one with fun development opportunities to foster their own unique learning path. From sensory areas to construction sites, indoor gardening to climbing, reading areas and logic adventures, there is never a shortage of fun things to do.


Morning drop-offs can be difficult, especially when your child is new to nursery. Your child will be greeted by their key carer with open arms every day so you can rest assured they’re in good hands. Following this, your little one will then enjoy a healthy breakfast just before starting their day.

Healthy Meal Time

The right nutrition is vital to raising a healthy and happy child. Our chef prepares freshly cooked food at every mealtime and can cater to any dietary needs. We organise regular cooking classes to inspire the children to learn about healthy eating habits, fresh ingredients and multicultural food.

Lessons in Self-care

We teach all of our children the importance of self-care, both mentally and physically. From washing their hands, brushing their teeth, carrying out toilet routines and ‘winding down’ sessions, our lessons in self-care enhance their confidence and independence.

Sleep and Relaxation

Regular sleep is essential to improve your child’s attention span, memory, learning abilities and their overall mental and physical health. Containing soft mats, our dedicated sleep rooms are designed for relaxing. If your child no longer requires sleep during the day, there will be a dedicated area for them to play in.

Physical Health

Physical health is vital and we ensure our children spend a large chunk of their day outdoors interacting with nature. From playing outdoors to exploring the nearby surroundings of the countryside on forest walks, we ensure they learn about the environment and community they are growing up in.

Starting Nursery

Being in unfamiliar surroundings with unknown people can feel overwhelming and can lead to feelings of anxiety. This is why we have a settling in process to help you and your little one feel more comfortable, whilst settling in over a period of weeks.
We want your child to develop secure attachments with key members of staff, prior to starting with us. And we want you, the parents to feel happy and confident when dropping off.
