Wooldale Nursery and Preschool
Day Care nursery in Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire
Wooldale Nursery and Preschool is located on campus at the Caroline Chisholm School in Wootton, Northampton. We are proud to have achieved a “Good” Ofsted Rating, and Accreditation status through the Pre School Learning Alliance (2009), in recognition of the high quality of the learning and play provided for children, curriculum planning and assessment, and our working in partnership with parents and carers.
“Staff are very caring and supportive. They make children’s welfare a priority. They have very good relationships with the children thus ensuring children are confident, happy and settled. Staff in the baby room demonstrate a great deal of patience as they respond to the needs of the youngest with lots of hugs and cuddles”- Ofsted June 2009
At our nursery and preschool, dedicated rooms for each age group offer a homely, comfortable environment. We allow each child the space to progress and learn at a level appropriate to them, and all children have access to our enclosed outdoor space which offers the opportunity for fresh air, exercise and outdoor learning.
The baby room staff build close relationships with parents to mirror babies home care routines, while older children benefit from an organised environment in which to explore, discover, learn and develop. With activities carefully planned by the experienced staff team including story time, arts and crafts and role play - there is never a dull moment at Wooldale!
“I was nervous about the transition between the baby room and toddlers, but my child’s key worker and her new one worked really well together putting together a plan, and all the toddler room staff made us both feel very welcome and helped settle my child in very well. She is very happy”- Parent at Wooldale.
Cookery Club and Gardening Club are just two of the exciting initiatives on offer to Wooldale children, and our Ready For School programme, which includes Growing Readers, Growing Mathematicians and Growing Writers, helps develop early literacy skills and prepare children for their next step - school! Our rural location means we can host walks around the village and visits to the nearby horses. Music and Movement has been an ongoing activity at the nursery, and has recently been extended to all rooms across the nursery which is an additional charge.
Wooldale Nursery and Preschool has established excellent links with the Caroline Chisholm School, - offering all of our children (particular the pre-school children) to become familiar with what to expect from a school environment – perfect for assisting with the transition from nursery to school!
“I have sent all 3 of my children to Bright Horizons and have been extremely happy. The continuity of staff has helped make a stable environment. The employees must be happy too!”- Parent at Wooldale.
In addition to providing full day care, we also operate a before school, afterschool and play scheme facility.
