Here at Paintpots Manchester, we love using tuff spots in our daily play and we use a variety of shapes and sizes to enhance the children’s development and learning. Tuff spots are easy, fun and affordable and can be easily done at home for a stimulated and enjoyable play for your child.

At Paintpots we use Tuff Spots

All children have different interests and when using a tuff spot, these interests can be displayed within it. A couple of ideas we have done here are: using foods to make a farm yard by using different cereals and vegetables as trees and fences, a garden using flowers, a castle with shiny fabric and sand, bug hunting with soil, pebbles and twigs, a dinosaur village with tyres, shaving foam and foods and also a sea world with different coloured icebergs. A tuff spot is also a great way for children and adults to play together and build relationships and bonds.

Great for young children and even babies

Younger children and even babies can sit in them with sensory materials such as jelly, gloop or spaghetti as a few examples. Older children can use their tuff spot on a stand so they are able to stand and play alongside others building stories together, even with simple things like cars and trains with chalk roads and track markings drew on them.

Why do we use Tuff Spots?

A tuff spot is an empty canvas and can bring play and learning to any child of any age. Here at Paintpots Manchester, we use them to engage the children and cover all areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage. All areas can be covered and displayed within them to expand a child’s learning and they can be as simple or as creative as anyone would like; any small world can be incorporated into a tuff spot.

We encourage parents to come into the nursery and check out our Tuff Spots that they can use at home

Tuff spots are fantastic learning aids with so much potential for creativity, exploration and imagination. The children here at Paintpots Manchester really engage in their learning using tuff spots, but they also explore their environment more as they look for tools and resources to expand their play within them.

Sent my step-son here for over 2 years before he started school. Perfect location, great staff and most importantly, he loved it. Only issue was the refurbishment of the building taking place, but they even managed to use that as a learning experience and the kids all loved the builders and diggers opposite!!read more

I Sent my little girl here from a small baby and watched her grow in to a confident, bright young lady. I could not praise and thank the staff here enough, they were like our second family. Very relaxed, friendly, homely environment with the children at the centre of everything they do.read more

I sent my child to this Nursery after having sent his 2 older siblings. I work in the City Centre and they love the place, they all did. There are staff that have been there for over 10 years, location is fantastic and whilst the recent renovation works have not been ideal, it hasn't affected the care one bit. Somehow, they even find a way to make activities that involve the construction materials. Can't recommend highly enough!!read more
