About Me

TW Kids is a unique childcare setting in Tunbridge Wells, graded "OUTSTANDING" by OFSTED.

Set up by myself , Suzanne an OFSTED registered childminder, registered since 2007 and based in Tunbridge Wells.

Due to high demand, mainly through word of mouth from existing and past familes we have now evolved and operate as TW Kids. We aim to provide high quality teaching in the Early Years in a rich, homely environment . We can offer continuity of child care not just for babies and pre-schoolers but where possible throughout your child's primary school years.

My team now extends to a Room Leader and six key workers who have come from a variety of childcare backgounds including Nursery practioners, childminders and Nannies . Together we offer a wealth of experience and are very focused on high quality teaching in the Early Years. We like to take advantage of being able to visit the local parks and places of interest to support your child's learing and development. Fun activities/ sensory experiences are planned and tailored to your child's interests. We enjoy live music for circle sing time courtesy of our Room Leader. We offer our children the same social interaction of similar aged children you would find in a small nursery to help develop Personal, Social and Emotional skills.
The main difference is the lower adult/child ratios we work to in childminding compared with a nursery environment which allow us to provide a much higher standard of quality childcare and importantly that "one to one " attention

Our facilities include a garage converted to our "Toy Store" plus a large, level and secure back garden so we can provide plenty of fun learning activities both indoors and out for all ages.We have several cars, perfect for outings to parks, play centers plus school/nursery pick-ups.

Weare based in Sandhurst Park, TN2, Just a short walk to High Brooms station, ideal if you need to commute. There is always plenty of parking front of house for easy drop offs and pick ups..

We have beautiful, docile and affectionate Persian Cats who love playing with and being petted by the children who come here.

We are a Provider of Free Early Education for two, three year and four year olds

With regards to my personal background, I was educated at Tonbridge Girls Grammar School and have had previous careers in Sales

It has been of great comfort to me, knowing that Thomas has been in safe, caring hands every morning, but more importantly, he has had a fun and often educational time with you all. It's thanks to the nurturing environment you provide and your encouragement that he has been able to thrive at TWKids, He has also enjoyed helping sometimes with the younger children, which has been an especially important opportunity for him, as he has no younger siblings. For all of this, I can't thank you enough. Thomas will miss you and your assistants very much, as well as your very special cats!
