Woodlands Nursery is a purpose built building, specifically designed for childcare and nursery activities.  It offers a secure, friendly environment for children introducing fun, activity, learning and sociability.  We opened on the 16th of August 2011 after successfully registering with The Care Inspectorate (Formerly Care Commission).  Children are welcomed and valued for who they are as individuals; they are supported and nurtured to promote active play and socialisation.

Each individual child’s needs are met as Woodlands promotes an environment of equality and safety.



  • "My daughter has been at Woodlands for two years and is very happy there.  Staff are always welcoming and friendly, affectionate with the children, and very observant of their moods.  The nursery is a bright, airy, open space, always decorated with the childrens' work.  Access to outdoor space is wonderful, with lots of toys/equipment to play with.  The Staff are very good at stimulating the childrens' natural instinct for learning, using different techniques and activities.  We have really appreciated the warm and caring environment at Woodlands and I can honestly say we are a bit sad to be heading off to 'big school'!"


  • "I feel that my son's specific needs are met well and he is very much seen as an individual and encouraged in his interests.  He is very comforted by nurturing from staff and when needing that extra hug at drop off is freely offered this.  Its excellent to see children getting so much opportunity for outdoor learning both in the garden and outwith nursery."
