Our bright and stimulating nursery provides excellent opportunities for children to learn through play. Each session is led by a fully qualified teacher and supported by highly experienced teaching support staff.
At Woodhouse West Nursery children settle quickly and happily. Nursery offers fifteen (15) hours of free nursery over five mornings or five afternoons or a combination of two and a half days.
Starting at Woodhouse West
Children will start nursery the term after their third birthday. The term before your child is due to start we will contact you regarding some key transition events to help prepare you and your child for starting Nursery, these include:
- Home Visit
- Start Date
We will arrange the home visit for the beginning of the term your child will join Nursery. This is a fantastic way for the Nursery Teacher to meet you and your child in an environment that is familiar to the child, and we find this really helps with the transition into Nursery.
All new children will start after home visits are completed. Each child will be given an individual start date. This allows us to ensure that we can support all of the children as they take this exciting step.
Parents are welcomed into our Nursery and we provide huge amounts of support and friendly guidance to help you to continue your child's development at home.
Parents will be given a welcome pack and a data form. Where a child starts the term after their 3rd birthday they will also be given a Free Early Years Funding Form, this will need to be completed and returned to school along with a copy of your child's birth certificate prior to your child starting at Nursery. Please note we will not be able to start children until all paperwork has been received.
