How it works in the nursery


Our stylists go to your child’s nursery and cut their hair during nursery time.


Tots Crops provides a children's hairdressing service, to take the hassle out of getting your kids’ hair cut. You drop them off and pick them up at the end of the day, with their hair cut just the way you want it. Children have to be at ease with their surroundings in order to cooperate when having their hair cut. Tots Crops' stylists have the experience and expertise to deliver a fun and hassle-free experience for your tots.

We are CRB checked, fully insured and use our specially-designed Tots Crops children's hairdressing chair with safety strap. We damp down the hair with water or a light leave-in conditioning spray, then cut the hair and finish with a blow dry. Each child will receive a pack of raisins to eat whilst having their hair cut to keep their hands busy and a sticker for good behaviour.

We also give free fringe trims between haircuts.

If your child doesn’t want their hair cut, they don't have to. Our stylists will not cut your child's hair if they are really upset. The stylist and your child's key worker make the decision based on the child's history. Each child is individual and therefore is to be treated uniquely according to their needs. If your child does not have their hair cut, you can keep the credit until next time or have a full refund.

Let us know if you would like to be emailed a photo of your child having their hair cut. Although not part of the service, this is a request that we are more than happy to grant and one that many parents love!

All children are welcome to come and join in whilst children are having their hair cut. So that everyone is included, we give helper badges to children who are just there to assist us. All the children in attendance are given raisins and bubbles too. We treat all the children equally, so that no one is made to feel left out.

Check the nursery notice board to see who your stylist is and when they are next available in your nursery.

After your first appointment, your stylist will contact you every six to 12 weeks depending on your child's hair to book their next appointment. Your children are our clients and we care.

Thanks to Tots Crops, you need never worry about getting your child’s hair cut again...until they leave nursery at least!
