Inspired by nature

Your children will spend dedicated time in our outdoor areas, to connect them with nature through a variety of outdoor experiences. We are proud to have Forest School qualified educators amongst our experienced team.

At Woodville, our experienced educators teach children using the Early Years Foundation Stage framework alongside our own SM approach to curriculum.

Our tailored spaces and hybrid approach to education allow children to reach their full potential at their own pace and in their own time.

Mealtimes at Woodville are a time for children to refuel, be sociable and learn about nutrition.

For children with all year round care, healthy snacks and food are cooked every day by our onsite chef using local and seasonal produce when we can. Children experience new flavours and look forward to favourite dishes while older children help in our kitchen.

Children with preschool sessional care have the flexibility to bring in their own lunch or pay an additional £3 for a nutritious packed lunch prepared by our chef.

A very warm welcome to Woodville Nursery & Preschool in Woodville, Derbyshire.

We know that every child is different with their own story to tell, so we make sure that your child learns in a way and at a pace that's right for them. Every day at Woodville, we encourage children to be inquisitive and imaginative in our stimulating learning environments. In doing so, they soon develop a real love of learning and a curious mind.

Our learning environments are split across two wonderful settings. Our Blacksmith's Lane site provides all year round care for children from six weeks to five years old. At our brand new preschool on Moira Road, we provide sessional care for children aged two and older. Across both sites, we are proud to have a highly experienced team with a wealth of early years learning insight, including educators qualified in Forest School.

Come and see for yourself our inspiring learning environments and begin your child’s early years story with us.

Our nursery and preschool provides tailored environments offering outstanding care and learning for children aged 6 weeks to 5 years old.

Nursery for babies image

Babies

Our educators create opportunities for sensory discovery and gentle play. Babies deepen their awareness of the world around them and begin to learn and develop new skills, from walking to talking. We also have our very own garden for this age group where they can enjoy outdoor play as well as visits to the local park.

Older babies enjoy free play sessions and stimulating activities to ignite their imaginations. We'll also guide children in independent feeding during snack time and meals.

After a busy morning of exploring and learning, there’s time to recharge. We know how important naps are, and make sure that when they need it, babies can sleep.

Toddlers

As their story begins to take shape, growing toddlers are given the time and space to be more independent, discover and learn. Children make friends, learn to play alongside each other and become more aware of the world around them. Our experienced educators encourage language development too, starting with simple sounds and building to sentences.

Toddlers enjoy daily activities across all areas of learning including mathematics, role play, technology and arts and crafts.  Social skills and peer relationships are enhanced through group activities and educators use free play and adult-led sessions for more targeted learning support.

Preschool

Our preschool children are split across two wonderful sites, our Blacksmith's Lane location for all year round care, and nearby Moira Road for sessional care.

At both locations, we focus on preparing our preschool children for the learning journey ahead with a focus on phonics, numbers, technology and social skills. Children have access to our safe outdoor garden and take walks in the community and to the local park, immersing themselves in the great outdoors with lots of opportunities for imaginative play.

With growing confidence and ability, children spend their final year at Woodville getting ready for primary school. By this time, they have made firm friendships and leave us as independent, curious and confident learners, ready for the next chapter of their own story.
