WELCOME TO WOODENTOPS
Our vision is to:
is to provide an environment of awe and wonder so that children enhance their curiosity and creativity, preparing them for their next stage of learning.
Woodentops Preschool is based at the Potton United Football Clubhouse on the outskirts of the historic market town of Potton. We are nestled in between the beautiful surroundings of Pegnut Woods and the charming Boundary café. We are very close to the Tall Trees and Market Reach estates.
Our family orientated setting follows the Curiosity Approach. The curiosity approach aims to give children back their freedom by igniting their natural curiosity and imagination. When adopting this teaching method, children are able to think for themselves, make their own choices, and direct their own learning.
We use the environment as a third teacher, with our teachers and children being the other two.
We follow the child’s interests and plan around them, in the moment. For example, dog chains can be used for spaghetti or money; crates, wood rounds and go-cart wheels are used to build cars or buses, sometimes fire engines or whatever the child imagines in their play

Hello my name is Tia stringer I’m 20 years old and am currently trying to find a job with in the local area. I am level 3 trained and hold other certicates such as food and hygiene and have done a course in learning disabilities. I have also worked with in a few settings both with in the private and public sector my age range I have worked with is from 6 months to 8 years. Since having my daughter at 17 I have found it hard to get back in to working with children as they all offer such long hours but working in a pre school setting with hours of 9-3 or 3.30 would be perfect. I’m confident and a good team player I work well with others as well as alone and I feel I’m a very strong a determined person this is something I have gained from becoming a single mum at 17. If you have any jobs I would really appreciate it if you could let me know I would be happy to send my c.v over. Thank you
