Castle Tots

Castle Tots aims to provide quality childcare and to establish and maintain a happy environment for children, staff and visitors.

We aim to give children confidence and motivation for the future by providing a variety of activities that help children to progress according to their differing abilities.

The curriculum provides structured and balanced activities that are relevant to each child and, above all, fun. Play is crucial to a child’s development socially, physically, intellectually, creatively, culturally, emotionally and spiritually. It is one of the best ways in which children learn about life. By experimenting and doing things themselves, they learn things that nobody else can teach them.


Castle Tots is located at Castlechurch Primary school in Stafford and can provide care from 7:30 am until 6:00 pm, 50 weeks of the year.

Castle Tots nursery is registered for children from the age of 2 years to 5 years and offers a variety of different sessions. To find out a little bit more about the sessions Castle Tots can offer, please click here.

Castle Tots also provides a Before and After school Club as well as a Holiday Club (Holiday Club held at Tillington Primary School).
