About TIK-TOK Nurseries
TIK-TOK is a not for profit children’s nursery, established in 1991, offering full or part-time childcare to babies and children aged between six weeks and five years.
We opened a second nursery at Hertfordshire House in Pelaw, in June 2015.
Our philosophy is to promote an environment of high quality childcare in close partnership with parents.
Each child is provided with an environment that is not only warm, secure and caring, but also exciting, stimulating and educational. What’s more, activities are tailored to each child’s individual development and specific needs, so that the children are perfectly placed to reach their full potential.
We encourage the involvement of all parents through the friends of TIK-TOK, a group which meets regularly to discuss policy, arrange fund-raising activities and social events.

Our cooking activities offer the children the opportunity to see ingredients being prepared and turned into wonderful meals and snacks for them to enjoy. The children have particularly liked getting involved with making stir fry for Chinese New Year and pancakes on Pancake Tuesday.
This gives us time to wiggle and jiggle, bounce up and down and burn off some excess energy. Fun games and activities with parachutes, pom-poms, lycra and more will keep the children entertained and moving about. Stretching, running, jumping and moving their bodies in new ways will help to develop the children’s physical skills, keeping their bodies fit and healthy in such a way that they simultaneously learn to stay safe.
The children can enjoy favourite and new stories about far off lands and interesting characters through a range of tales. Props including puppets and interactive opportunities for the children all add to the excitement. The children might find themselves going on a bear hunt or collecting food with the hungry caterpillar. They might get to meet the Gruffalo or have tea with a tigert.
