Our Nursery

Woodlands Nursery & Forest School is an Ofsted outstanding rated nursery, where children learn and play surrounded by nature.

From babies to preschool, parents choose our nursery so that their child can learn, play and grow in a spectacular environment. Our nursery is based in a beautiful wooded area and we use both indoor and outdoor activities to help children develop their skills.

Your child will benefit from access to our secure Forest School, a stunning place to learn through hands-on experiences. Activities such as den-making, bug-hunting and creating art using natural materials help your child to grow their confidence and become inquisitive learners ready for school.

We are an Ofsted outstanding rated nursery, which recognises the exceptional standard of care and the dedication of our team to give your child the best start in life.

Open weekdays from 7.30am - 6.30pm, we care for children from 6 weeks until it's time to go to school. Unlike many day nurseries, we are open during the school holidays and are closed only on bank holidays and the week of Christmas.

WHY PARENTS LOVE OUR NURSERY

Your child treated as an individual

Our ethos is based around the fact that your child is unique and that there isn't a one-size-fits-all approach to childcare. Working with you, our staff will learn your child's individual interests, strengths and weaknesses so that we can adapt your child's care based on them and their development. Your child will have their own dedicated key person and will receive individual attention with personalised development plans and activities designed around them.

Amazing outdoor setting

We know that your child's favourite memories will be made playing outdoors with friends, rather than being cooped up inside. Our amazing outdoor area gives your child the opportunity to learn and play surrounded by nature. 

Each room has direct access to its own outdoor play area, which children can play in throughout the day. The inspiring outdoor environment provides an amazing place to learn, play and grow.

Spectacular Forest School

Our secure Forest School is an idyllic setting surrounded by trees, bushes and wildflowers. Throughout the year and whatever the weather, your child will visit it to learn about the world around them.    

Forest School is all about your child learning about the natural world around them and developing their independence and confidence through hands-on learning experiences.

Strong relationships with families

We know that we can't provide the best care for your child without a strong relationship with you. We will build a shared approach to your child's learning with you, so that we can better personalise their care and adapt to your home routine where appropriate.


Using our secure Famly app on your computer or phone, you can view photos and updates of your child each day as they learn and play.

An experienced and qualified team

Your child will be cared for by an experienced team of qualified professionals. Led by a proven manager who has been with Park Lane Kids for many years, they have the skills, knowledge and compassion to provide excellent care.


We insist on continuous learning and our staff hold additional qualifications, including in paediatric first aid and child safeguarding.
