About Us

The Woodlands nursery is based in Walcot and has been established since 2018. When the nursery was created in 2018 the building was renovated throughout from installing low counter work tops so the children are able to do cooking activities, from the small sinks and toilets to encourage independence and the free flow doors so the children are able to access the outdoors throughout the day!
What’s different about us!

The Owners Gemma and Anthony realised with their 4 children how difficult it was to find childcare for their children which can work around their working hours without costing the earth!
Their sister nursery was setup in 2014 to offer children and their families the opportunity to pick their children’s hours to work around their family needs.

So what does this mean for parents/carers!

At The Woodlands we do not lock parents into morning and afternoon sessions, you can choose your own hours anytime from 7.30-6pm Monday-Friday the only stipulation is that you book a minimum of x9 hours a week and have set days each week.
We also accept funding 2-5 year old funding, to support families they can be used again Monday-Friday 7.30-6pm and the only stipulation again is that you book a minimum of x9 hours a week and have set days each week. Due to the setting being opening 51 weeks of the year we provide an option for families that you can stretch your 15 or 30 funding hours over 51 weeks a year, this enables children to attend the setting all year round.

The nursery has good relationships with our local schools and the nursey feeds into the below schools

Lainesmead Primary School
Holy Cross Catholic Primary School
Mountford Manor Primary
Lawn Primary

However due to offering flexible sessions we have families attending from all over Swindon and The Meadows can work with all schools across Swindon.

Learning journeys

Our learning journeys are now electronic! This means at a click of a button you can see what your child has been doing throughout the day!
This also enables parents/carers to send message to their Childs's keyworker and upload their own photos and observations.

Not a fan of electronic learning journals, not a problem we also have for every child their own paper learning journey which when they leave will be given to the parents/carers.
