Woodlands Park is an Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ (2015) nursery and Forest School in Bradley for children aged from birth to five years. Set in a Victorian mansion within two acres of stunning grounds, the nursery and pre-school provides exceptional care and early years foundation education.

As an official Forest School, Woodlands Park is a place where children enjoy stimulating learning activities in a woodland environment. Children play in the nursery’s adventure gardens every day and have access to a secure woodland garden. There the children build dens, go on bug hunts, do a spot of gardening and care for the nursery chickens.

Woodlands Park’s beautiful stone Victorian mansion has been refurbished to provide a homely environment filled with natural light. Large windows, soft furnishings and pretty chandeliers make the nursery feel cosy, whilst exciting resources provide fun and excitement.

The nursery is always filled with the delicious smell of home-cooked food, as the chef freshly prepares healthy homemade meals every day. Children enjoy a varied seasonal menu filled with fresh fish, meat, fruit and vegetables – which can be altered to suit any special dietary requirements.

A friendly team of highly qualified staff prepare children socially, emotionally and academically for school. Childcare practitioners provide education following Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) guidelines.

Staff have paediatric first aid and safeguarding training and all have undergone enhanced DBS checks. For added safety the nursery has CCTV, secure door entry systems and off-road parking.

Reviews

9.4 Woodlands Park Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.4 (9.378)

The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Woodlands Park Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Woodlands Park Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 7 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. For each review the Day Nursery / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Day Nursery receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating.

    The Average Rating of 4.94 for Woodlands Park Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (79 Excellents x 5) + (5 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.94

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. A Positive Review is defined as any Review with 'Extremely Likely' or 'Likely' in answer to the question 'How likely are you to recommend this Day Nursery to friends and family?'

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

    1. 4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.

    2. 1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Day Nursery with 50 registered maximum number of service users has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.

    3. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

    The 4.438 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Woodlands Park Day Nursery is based on 7 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 16 positive Reviews (80 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 16 Target = 0.438

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

We have been over the moon with the care provided to our son at Woodlands Park, he attends 3 days a week and has so much fun whilst he's there. After a slow start with him taking a while to settle in (due to his personality!) he now couldn't be happier or more settled. The bond he has with the girls in the room is so lovely, I love the fact that he has had a key worker throughout who he absolutely adores. The staff do some lovely activities with the babies such as messy play, painting and baking as well as lots of playing outside. The food they eat while they are there is so varied too, he eats pretty much anything now, which was not the case before he started! The facilities are the best I've seen, as well as the nursery being off the beaten track, which we liked, the nursery itself is great with an absolutely fantastic outdoor area and brilliant interactive rooms! I will definitely recommend to anyone in the area looking for a nursery to send their child to.

My daughter has attended this nursery for the past 2 years and she has enjoyed it thoroughly. The nursery, the service and the staff are all excellent. I feel at ease knowing she enjoys her time there. She has been in four different rooms during her time and has enjoyed it most in early education. The staff in that room have been amazing and I will be sad to see her leave such an amazing learning environment.

Woodlands Park has been absolutely fantastic. My son has spent 2 years at the nursery and has seemed to enjoy every minute. He has told us he will miss nursery when he starts school. Both the staff and the facilities are outstanding. We could not recommend the nursery enough.

I can't fault Woodlands at all, our little girl was so shy and reserved before she started here but the staff at Woodlands have brought her on so much and now our little girl is so confident and bright. She is going to miss Woodlands so much but she is ready for big school! We can't thank you enough, we will all miss you. Thank you!
