WELCOME TO WOODENTOPS PRE-SCHOOL !
We wish you a very warm welcome to our Website. We are a non profit making community Preschool based in Potton, Central Bedfordshire. We were inspected by Ofsted on 11th January 2016 and were graded as ‘GOOD’.
We were established in 1990 by Carol and Helen, Jackie took over in 2014. We run from the Potton United Football Club. This gives us a very spacious room inside and a beautiful outside area surrounded by trees and wildlife- we often see ducks, pheasants, birds of prey and many different types of insects. Horses, ponies and lambs visits us too.
We offer places to children from 2 years old until school age.
We open from 8.45 to 3.45, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and 8.45 to 1pm on Friday. We are very flexible in that children can attend for hours suited to their parents for example 10am to 1pm or 11am to 3pm with a minimum of 3 hours per session. Children who stay after 12 will need a pack up lunch for lunchtime. We provide nutritious snacks that the children have chosen. Each child gets a chance to cook at least every other week. We DO NOT charge a registration fee.
We accept funded 2, 3 and 4 years. We provide lots of open ended learning experiences based around each child’s individuality. This enables the children to develop as capable learners, allowing them to explore their creativity in their own time, giving them the chance to achieve the goals they set themselves. We have a variety of activities such as cooking, dance, team games,nursery rhymes and songs, arts and crafts, messy play, sensory activities, reading, growing plants (potatoes and sunflowers were a big hit this year) and various mark making fun.
Our children leave us going to Potton Lower School, Sutton Lower School or Wrestlingworth Lower school. We have had children go to other schools too. We visit our schools throughout the year so that the children get a good feel of what school is and how much fun it is. They really enjoying seeing their friends that were at Woodentops, plus they love having a ride in the cars too.
