A place to grow

Our setting has a large outdoor area, including an allotment for the children to grow their own vegetables as part of our Growing Gardeners enhancement.

Supporting and Learning


Growing Mathematicians

1-2-3-4-5! Mathematics is embedded in everything that we do and experience in our day-to-day lives and our Growing Mathematicians programme has been created to help your child understand the purpose and importance of mathematics. 

Growing Readers

Growing Readers brings together home and nursery life, providing parents with some of the theory behind developing children’s reading skills, and also providing handy Hints & Tips, recommended reading lists and suggested activities for parents and children to explore together.

Growing Writers

Our Growing Writer’s approach supports the complex magical journey from making a mark, to emergent writing, to confident writer, laying the foundational skills that enable each child to flourish with the confidence and capability to succeed at school.

Meet the Team

Claire Patmore

I have worked at Woodlands for over 22 years this year and have been Manager since 2001. I am NNEB diploma qualified with a wealth of experience and qualifications in childcare and management.
My mum was my inspiration for choosing childcare as a vocation such was her inspirational work with children with profound additional needs.
I have seen thousands of children pass through Woodlands during my time here (the eldest now 26!!) and am so proud of the lifelong friendships and bonds between parents, children and staff alike that have been made through our setting.

Carly Dart

I have been Deputy Manager at Woodlands since 2001. I have a BTEC National Diploma in Childcare and have vast experience working with under 5’s. 
I had always wanted to work with children so choosing childcare as a career came naturally and I still very much enjoy spending time in our base rooms supporting our staff teams and spending time with the children.
