Our Nursery is led and managed by Woodside Primary School and Nursery Governing Body. We offer places for 2 - 4 year olds. We can accommodate for NEF children and also for fee paying children. We are open Monday to Friday from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm. Our rates are very competitive. See Nursery Fees and Policies for further details.
Nursery experience is often a child's first venture alone into a larger world outside the family and home. We believe that what children learn in Nursery can create lasting foundations on which to build on during their lives. A high quality nursery education is about much more than numbers, letters, colours and shapes. It's about learning to be independent, confident, strong and curious. It's about developing children's natural joy and wonder at the world they live in. We believe children learn by exploring and investigating, watching and listening, talking and discussing, creating and communicating, and simply 'having a go!'
By working in true partnership with parents we aim to provide a stimulating, challenging environment which is a warm and friendly extension of home. Where children and adults can explore, have fun, play, talk and learn together as happy, confident and independent individuals within their community. We believe that we have a significant role to play along with parents, families, other professionals and the whole of the wider community in raising the young citizens of our society.
Please come and have a look round our lovely Nursery and meet our team of staff. We would love to meet you!
