Social Responsibility

We believe that as a childcare provider it is our duty to teach our children about their community, their responsibility to the environment and the people in it. At Woodlands we believe that helping children to understand the world around them and their place in it, inspires our young people to respect others and educates them to value diversity. Children can better understand their culture and identity by learning about those around them. We hope that by cultivating these positive attitudes in childhood they are likely to continue as our children grow into adulthood.

At Woodlands we do this by running events that link our children to their community. We often invite local services like the veterinary nurses to come in and talk to our children about how to care for animals, including our own pets. We collected Easter eggs for our local children’s cancer ward at Southampton General, we sent care packages to our serving military in Afghanistan to teach our children about the Armed Forces. We take our children to Holly Hill to teach them about protecting the environment, we learn about recycling and growing plants to improve the environment.

Giving Back to the Local Community

In addition to this we regularly hold charity events to encourage our parents to give back to our local community, we raise money for charities close to our heart and we encourage our staff to act as good role models to our children.
