About the Nursery

The Nursery is situated in a quiet residential area of Woodley. We occupy a two story Tudor building with a large secure outside space to the rear. The children can ride bikes, play in the sand pit and enjoy a range of different activities on the private and spacious artificial grassed lawn. The children also receive weekly sports coaching and a music and movement session.

Our Nursery has a defibrillator in place. We believe this is such an important piece of kit to have to hand in the case of a medical emergency, all staff have received training in how to use a defibrillator.

Wiggle Waggle with Miss Joanna

All children thoroughly enjoy their weekly music and movement session with Miss Joanna. The sessions involve action songs, movement, drama, singing, rhythm… and all whilst having the most invigorating fun possible. The children use a wide range of activities and stimulation by means of different props, pictures, lights and instruments. They simply LOVE it!


Woodley Gardens Day Nursery has been amazing from day one. My son settled in much quicker than at a previous childcare provider, which put us a ease and made us feel that all his needs were met and exceeded, he even takes naps. My son loves his key worker and all the staff. I actually look forward to him going as I know he’ll do something fun like go to the park or do water play, that he doesn’t get to do at home. He’s learnt lots already like feeding himself and drawing. All the children are treated as individuals and all the staff are dedicated and caring. My son has food allergies and these are catered for without a problem. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend woodley gardens day nursery. It has made my return to work much less stressful.

We made the decision to relocate our son from another nursery to Woodley Gardens Day Nursery. We were nervous about this decision but the staff made us all feel so welcome right from our first visit. With their support our son settled in very quickly and now he absolutely loves going to his “new nursery”! WGDN provides a clean, high quality and homely environment for the children with a great range of activities to enjoy each day, as well as plenty of time spent in the garden. We are delighted with the nursery and would certainly recommend it

My little one loves his days at nursery and is always asking when his next day at nursery will be.  Staff are so friendly, approachable and helpful and have helped our son settle into nursery seamlessly. We would thoroughly recommend this nursery
