Wood Fold Fledglings Nursery provides education for boys and girls of two to four years of age and is situated within Wood Fold Primary School. We have an early years partnership with the school and liaise with the reception teachers who visit regularly.
Our aims and objectives are to provide a high quality, safe and educational environment. This includes equipment and activities appropriate to the child’s age and stage of development helping to create confident and happy children.
Our ethos relies heavily on the concept of developing independence and acquiring good social skills. We hope to develop in all children the desire to learn and the ability to apply their knowledge. At the same time we want to help each child find the self-esteem and confidence that are so necessary to live a full and happy life.

‘Children's enthusiasm for learning and the level to which they succeed, is enhanced by highly skilled and experienced staff who recognise every child as a unique individual and support them very effectively. Staff implement some expert teaching strategies to promote learning across the Early Years Foundation Stage. Consequently, all children, but particularly those with special educational needs and/or disabilities, make excellent progress.’

Parents who have completed an application form will be contacted in the Spring term (after the Easter break) prior to commencing in September.
These are provided in July before the children commence in September giving the opportunity for the children to gain confidence in the new surroundings and begin to know their peers and staff alike. At this time they will be introduced to their key person. If required during the holiday period we provide home visits to further support their transition.
