Woodlands Day Nursery

Our Nursery and Forest School brings the forest setting to our city campus and is not only connected with its landscaped and idyllic surroundings, but also provides inspirational and flexible learning spaces that offer developing children digital experiences too. 

We understand just how critical it is that childcare evolves ahead of the times, so our team are committed to helping to build essential prerequisite skills to support your child’s future learning, as well as providing a fun and loving environment to nurture our little professionals of tomorrow.

'Children and families are at the heart of everything we do'

The first years of your child’s life are some of their most important. We understand that deciding how to care for your child during that time is a big decision to make.

Our Ofsted rated 'Good' nursery provides full day-care for children ages 0 to 5 and is available for students, staff and members of the local community. Full and part time sessions are available, so be sure to request a place as soon as you can.
