The Woodland Pre-School

Welcome to The Woodland Pre-School a proud member of the Waterton Pre-School family.

At The Woodland Pre-School, we make Early Years Education accessible and fun for all our young learners, harnessing a child’s naturally inquisitive nature and using this to develop an engaging curriculum.

We understand that every child has their own interests, needs and pace of development and we encourage them to explore these. We also know that children learn best when they are happy, so play is central to everything we do. We provide each child with exciting activities and experiences that are appropriate for their age and development within our inclusive setting.

For anyone interested in enrolling their child into our Pre-School, we run regular open days but are always delighted to show prospective families around our setting at any time. Please use the contact us section and get in touch we would love to hear from you.
