Tawny Owls

We welcome babies into our Tawny Owl Nursery from 6 weeks to approximately 2 years old.

As parents ourselves, we are highly sensitive to the need of providing a relaxed and loving atmosphere into which parents can leave their most “precious possessions” with us. To support both our babies,toddlers and parents we employ a team of qualified and experienced staff that have a vast wealth of knowledge and experience in relation to working with babies. We aim for our Tawny Owl Nursery to be a secure, stimulating and caring home from home environment providing parents with the confidence and peace of mind knowing that their children are receiving the best possible care available.

The routine of our babies days and sessions are very much based on the individual needs of our babies with our babies dictating when they require feeding, changing, stimulating or sleeping. We also provide 3 triple buggies in order that we are able to take our children out to explore the local community. As our babies develop and become more inquisitive we provide more stimulating and challenging activities, such as arts & craft, sand & water play complimented by stimulating and educational resources. All staff employed within our Tawny owl nursery attend annual save a babies life training which covers vital training on choking,non breathing infants and first aid skills.

Welcome Area

This is the area where your children’s belongings are stored and where your child’s key person welcomes you. This is also where our care plans for the toddlers and parents take place.

Dedicated Yoga Room

We are pleased to inform you that we have two members of staff who are trained in the practise of Mini Yoga. Recent studies have found that the children’s yoga helps children to release stress and retain more information whilst increasing their confidence. Yoga encourages the children’s capacity to learn and be gentle with each other and to grow strong mentally and physically. We are delighted to inform you that at Little Owls Toftwood we have a dedicated yoga room for all of our children and babies to enjoy.

Yoga Room


We have an individual sleep room for our babies. Here we provide wooden cots for our babies along with cellular blankets and cosy flannelette sheets. We have CCTV cameras within the room which enables us to view and hear our babies at all times.For our older toddlers we provide cushioned sleeping mats which are both hygienic and comfortable

In addition to the above we also have our own baby changing bathroom where we promote hygiene and respect privacy. Situated on the first floor is a parent’s room whereby parents are welcome to have refreshments if their child is settling, or should they wish to have a general private discussion with the staff regarding their child’s care or development.
