The Woodlands Property

Managing the change to a new setting and helping your child feel at home
  • Woodlands Property

  • We pride ourselves on our equipment that we provide our children. We have lots of resources and space inside, as well as several large spaces outside.

    We believe our outdoor space is just as important as our indoor space as it is important to provide the children with opportunities to use their gross motor skills, extend their physical development as well as a time to meet their siblings, socialise with their friends as well as other staff.

    Our main garden provides a range of activities that cover every area of the curriculum, we have quieter areas where children can select books to read, areas children can use our climbing equipment or make use of our scooters, cars and bikes. We also have a mud kitchen where the children can role play and use their imagination, a construction area, a mark making area and both sand and water areas.

    The main garden can be accessed all day and in all weathers and our children thoroughly enjoy playing together across the age groups. We find this is so important in helping the older children take responsibility for the younger children and encouraging them to model good behaviours, whilst giving a great opportunity for the younger children to learn skills from the older children.
