Woodlands Nursery is OFSTED inspected, which means children will receive Government funding.
OFSTED require that we plan our activities around the
'Early Years Foundation Stage' (EYFS)
Learning is achieved through play and experiences provided by the staff.
A 'Learning Journey' is kept on each child at the nursery using an online system called Blossom Educational Ltd. Staff use ipads to record your child's development and progres. Staff complete 2 year old checks and Formative Reports these set 'targets' to move the children on to the next stage of their individual learning. Through the Blossom App you will get a 'Daily Diary' this will include information about your child's day including Nappy Changes, Sleep times, Mealtimes etc.
