Nursery - Seedlings 2023 - 2024

Miss Hughes

Welcome to Seedlings

Our amazing Nursery offers a nurturing and stimulating environment as well as carefully planned learning experiences to help your child get ready for school and be the best they can be! At Willow Wood Nursery we take children from the term after their 3rd birthday, with three intakes throughout the year; September, January or April. 

Our Nursery is run by a fully qualified teacher as well as qualified teaching assistants to help care for your child. Our Nursery curriculum is based on the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Framework, promoting holistic development in seven key areas: 

  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development 
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development 
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World 
  • Expressive Arts and Design


Children in our Nursery make wonderful progress in all of these areas, as they engage in enriching play experiences as well as exciting and engaging learning opportunities. All children in our Nursery have daily Maths and daily Phonics sessions following the Little Wandle Foundations for Phonics programme which helps to build a fantastic foundation for future learning. 

Our Nursery and Reception children share a wonderful and spacious outdoor area, which means that we have close links with the Reception staff - great for helping to build confidence as they start their Willow Wood journey.
