Homely, warm and friendly childcare with an emphasis on outdoor play and learning.

Woodlands Home Nursery is open Monday to Friday from 07:45 to 18:00. We are registered by Ofsted to care for children between the ages of 6 months to 5 years.

We aim to provide a secure, inclusive and nurturing environment which will encourage your child to develop to their full potential whilst in a happy and homely environment.

All children at Woodlands will get the opportunity to develop and learn through play and experience a variety of activities both indoors and outdoors.

Our highly professional and experienced staff are committed to provide a safe, homely and stimulating environment for our children.

Woodlands Nursery

Our Approach

Woodlands Nursery is set in a beautiful house surrounded by a large, safe and resourceful garden that children access freely. We promote outdoor play as an important way of learning.

The Woodlands approach to learning and development places play at the heart of what we do. Play allows children to follow and develop their own interests and learn vital skills, such as, independence, problem solving and creativity.

Our curriculum is based on the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (2017). We plan and provide a range of experiences for your children to enhance their learning in all areas. We also offer free-flow access between indoors and outdoors and we go on regular outings in the local community.
