The Wolds Day Nursery at Stragglethorpe

Welcome to the Wolds Day Nursery at Stragglethorpe. We are extremely proud of the high-quality daycare we offer and are confident that you will be delighted with the level of service provided by our leadership team.  We cater for Discoverers, Explorers, Inventors and Preschool children.

Each one of our settings has its own unique atmosphere, Wolds Day Nursery Stragglethorpe is no exception.  Situated between Radcliffe-on-Trent and Cotgrave and set in the beautiful woodland grounds behind the Shepherds Restaurant, Wolds Day Nursery at Stragglethorpe is utterly enchanting.

Our nursery is a purpose-built facility that provides a bright and airy, homely and secure environment.  There is a large parking area for parents or a ‘pocket Park and Ride’, with regular buses going to West Bridgford and Nottingham. The nursery is bright, cheerful and stimulating with visible documentation of learning and well-kept resources.

We are registered and approved with Ofsted and our latest Ofsted inspection rated the quality of standards of Early Years provision as ‘OUTSTANDING’.

We offer excellent indoor and outdoor facilities, enabling us to offer a wide range of activities to all of our children.  All of our areas are safe, specially designed, self-contained environments.

Within our nursery Grounds, of almost an acre, is our Forest School Woodland Experience which our children have the opportunity to explore daily.  This is an extension to the pre-school garden, beyond the gate and into the magical forest.  It is risk-assessed and controlled measures are in place.  Pre-school children have the opportunity to partake in planned Forest School sessions.  All learning is play-based and child-led and children explore, discover and learn about the world around them.  They have the freedom to choose and express themselves creatively.  This makes their holistic development easier to achieve than just in the classroom.

From the chicken run to the transport track, the friendly fish and busy hens, the Wolds Nursery at Stragglethorpe is a wonderland of nature and utterly enchanting.
