We have had a wonderful cohort of nursery pupils for 2022/23. Our dedicated team of experienced nursery practitioners and our outstanding Head of Nursery, Shirley Hayman, who is retiring at the end of this term, could not have wished for a happier year than the one these children have created with their teachers support and guidance. As our new Nursery Head, Mrs Zoe Pritchard,  takes over in September 2023, Woodlands will continue to dedicate itself to filling the children’s days with the creativity, stimulating activities, focused teaching, child-led learning and lots of fun! We hope that future Woodlanders will visit us at our Open Mornings and Stay and Play Sessions in 2023 and beyond, to discover the Woodlands magic in the forest surroundings!
