Our Independent Nursery is divided into three distinctive areas:
- Caterpillar Room 0-2 year olds
- Butterfly Room 2-5 year olds
- Wise Owl’s 5-12 year olds (Before/After School/Holiday Care)
Each area is supervised by a room leader and all staff are qualified to Level 3 or above.
We strongly believe in working in partnership with parents to assist in ensuring each child has quality learning that meets with their individual needs. In order to promote core values, continuity and the development of strong relationships we believe it is essential that Our Learning Environment Reflects your Home Environment.
In addition to our three indoor areas we have a large self-contained secure garden area which all rooms have access to and this ensures our children get lots of fresh air and outside exercise. Here at Woodlands Day Nursery we believe that children benefit and experience the same developmental opportunities outdoors that they can experience indoors but on a larger scale. Because of this we therefore believe it is important to have free access to outdoors,in all types of weather, “There’s no such thing as bad weather just inappropriate clothing”
At Woodlands Day Nursery we believe that the Early Years has a long lasting impact on children’s learning and with this in mind we have Created a Safe, Challenging Learning environment which builds upon children’s own interests. Our Nursery incorporates a spacious outdoor area and bright, spacious stimulating indoor environment, where children are able to learn through play. Here at Woodlands children learn through their own interests while being actively supported and challenged by experienced staff. This means your child will stay focused, engaged and receptive to learning.
Developing abilities to problem solve, build self-confidence and have a good attitude to others.
We believe working in partnership with parents is paramount to children’s learning and we assist families to assist their children to explore the world around them and develop as individuals. We would love to take this opportunity to welcome you to visit our setting to see the benefits that both you and your child will receive.
In order to ensure high standards of safety, we operate a robust intercom operating access to the premises.
We have implemented a robust system to manage the authorised collection of children which includes a database of names for all people who are authorised to collect your child from Nursery. A password system also exists to further enhance the security measures.
