Yate Academy

Welcome & Admissions

Woodlands Nursery is a pre-school education provision for 3 to 4 year olds. Ofsted has reported “that children’s behaviour and their attitudes to learning and to others are exemplary.” The nursery provision is open to all and can offer the perfect stepping stone into Woodlands Primary Phase and Yate Academy.

We are committed to developing a partnership with you that will help us deliver high standards in the education and care of your child in a safe and happy environment. By the end of their nursery education, your child will be prepared for their Reception year at a Primary school with friends they have made along the way.

If you are thinking about or planning to join our Nursery, we are here at every step of the way to answer your questions. We understand that making plans for your child’s care and ongoing education at this early age is an important decision. We count it as a huge privilege to work with children, and can assure you that our team of practitioners, carers and wider school team will provide the very best  personalised care to meet your child’s needs.

To start the application process we would like to get some information from you about you and your child. Please complete the following form below (one form for each child). The form should be returned to us at your earliest convenience, so that we can arrange a start date that suits you.

Please remember that once your child starts in our nursery, if any of the information you complete in this application form changes, please notify us so that we can update our records.

If you have any further questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact us.
