Our Woodlands Nursery is well-furnished, bright, light and is built in the woods behind our main school. Our dedicated staff care for children aged between 2 & 4 years.

Our Woodlands Nursery currently has 2 rooms Bunnies and Owls. Bunnies is for 2 to 3 year olds & Owls is for 3 to 4 year olds. Our Owl room is led by an experienced EYFS teacher and offers lots of transition opportunities into Reception Class in school.

Children can attend from the term after they are 2 years of age.

Sessions are available in 3 hour blocks in the mornings or afternoons.  Funding, for 2 year olds, may be available for 15 hours each week during term time to some parents. 

For three year old children, funding of 30 hours or 15 hours a week can be available from the term after their 3rd birthday. 

We admit new children after the Summer, Christmas and Easter holidays.

Sessions are available morning, afternoon or any combination of mornings and afternoons.  Extra non-funded sessions can also be booked at a cost of just £15.  Hot lunches are served every day and these cost £2.50.

Should parents need childcare from 7.00am to 8.45am, or from 3.15pm to 6.00pm they can access our wraparound care.

When our Nursery was inspected by Ofsted, they said “staff provide a wide range of interesting and stimulating experiences.  Consequently children achieve well in their learning and development in this vibrant nursery”.

The activities we plan are flexible and follow the children’s interests and needs which allow them to explore, play, and help to prepare for school life. 

We have a secure outdoor play area, and a wide range of resources covering all areas of learning: a creative area, role play, construction areas, reading areas and more.

If you would like further information our helpful office staff would be more than happy to arrange a visit and discuss bookings that will suit the needs of your family.
