News and Events



Yellow Piggy Bank

Throughout the year everyone at Diddydots Nursery enjoys taking part in various sponsored events and fundraising activities which enable us to buy new equipment, have end of term parties but we mostly do it for the fun whilst taking part. We also like to support our local community. This has included visiting the community library van, singing to residents of the Dengie Trust and more.

Hygge wanderlust

Throughout each term we continue to investigate numbers and colours along with other themes. We follow Hygge wanderlust themes which is nature based learning to allow children to connect with nature and inspiring future generations to be explorers, adventurers and scientists. We connect with nature everyday and learn about wildlife and the natural world around us. empowering children to learn about the world first hand will enthuse them.


Costume Hire

Diddydots Nursery has Peppa pig, her brother George and the Gruffalo costumes that can be hired from us for an event or birthday etc. All children at the nursery are familiar with our Characters as they often come to visit for parties, Easter egg hunts or just pop in to see how we all are. Please take a look in our photo gallery for pictures of the costumes. 

The costumes are suitable for adults to wear. For more info or to book the costumes please call us. Prices will be given on enquiry.

Out of School Clubs

Yoga and Makaton

Every day we practise yoga and makaton signs as a big group. We regularly do yoga outside and learn new poses while also going over ones the children already know. we are always learning new makaton signs for words and phrases we say everyday which we encourage the children to use throughout their day. 


Breakfast Club

Children have the opportunity to have breakfast, play games or complete homework etc. The children are then walked to and collected from the local school bus which goes to St Cedd's school in Bradwell-on-Sea or we have the taxi call in to take children to Tillingham Primary school.
