How we are organised and what we believe about young children's learning

We believe that all children at Woodlands Park are entitled to a broad and balanced curriculum.

An entitlement curriculum should reflect and where possible integrate

  1. Children’s interests and enthusiasms
  2. The learning needs indicated by the children themselves, reflected in their play and other self-initiated activity
  3. The developmental needs of the child
  4. The key experiences, curriculum content and learning processes identified by staff as children’s entitlement

As a maintained nursery school we have a highly qualified staff team who have extensive experience and understanding of child development, curriculum, planning, pedagogy, formative assessment and evaluation in teaching and learning

How we are organised:

Green Room which has full time childcare places (8am – 6pm) for children between the ages of 1 and 3.  We also offer a number of free part time 2 year old places which are linked to eligibility criteria (see Free for Twos).
