Our amazing Playgroup based in Blyth where the foundations for outstanding futures are built, both for your child and those they'll interact with

Dinotots Happiness Guarantee

We are so confident that your child will love it at your chosen Dinotots Nursery that we offer all new parents our 14 day money back guarantee.
So, if your child does not settle, or anything else regarding the nursery doesn’t make you 100% happy within the first 14 calendar days of your child attending the nursery, then you can request, in writing, to cancel your contract, without having to pay the childcare industry’s standard 4-week notice period AND you will get a refund of any remaining days on that month’s invoice that you’ve paid for but haven’t used. We can’t say fairer than that!

Our Menu

Hot Nutritious Food Prepared Freshly for Hungry little Dinos .
Here at Dinotots Childcare we have all our meals cooked on site by staff who are qualified in Food Safety and Hygiene

The children serve themselves the food they want and gain independence by doing this whist being supervised by the staff

Our Nursery Rooms

Each Room with our nurseries is lovingly created to give the best experience, the best resources and the best excitement to your child, 
By using the Curiosity Approach within our nurseries we are truly able to offer a natural home-from-home experience.
This approach, and accreditation, builds on well known and established early years theorists, such as Reggio, Steiner, Te Whāriki and Montessori, in providing children with an environment, experiences, activities and resources which foster their in-built need to explore, try things out and engage in a high level of sustained shared thinking. We enhance the environments and resources that we already have in the nursery. We are introducing resources that are “real” and authentic, rather than plastic, to inspire awe and wonder and to enable children to handle items that are made of natural materials to gain skills and a level of understanding to support their learning and development at a deeper level.
Open & Transparent
Dinotots Childcare has many outstanding and unique qualities that you haven’t seen elsewhere – for this reason you’ll want to see and experience the Dinotots way for yourself.

As each situation is different, and everyone doesn’t fit in the same box we prefer to discuss individual day nursery costs with you during your visit. Once your requirements are identified we clearly outline the costs to you, there’s no small print, everything aspect is checked and double-checked so that you’re in no doubt of the ongoing costs from day one.

Help may be available for your childcare costs

We know that, no matter how great or how cost-efficient we try to make the nursery, the cost of day nursery can put many mums and dads off choosing it as an option.

There may, however, be help out there to assist you. There are a range of Government schemes open to parents that can make nursery affordable and we will do everything we can to help you understand the choices and access the funding that you might be eligible for.

Here are a few options:

Tax-Free Childcare  – For working families earning under £100k and at least £131 per week (equal to 16 hours at the National Minimum or Living Wage) each who aren’t receiving Tax Credits, Universal Credit or childcare vouchers.

15 hours and 30 hours Funded Childcare  – For many working parents of 2 year olds, and 3 – 4 year olds for 38 weeks each year.
