COVID19 Update:

Woodpeckers Private Nursery is open again and taking every precaution and recommendation to keep their Woodpeckers family safe. During the 96 days the nursery was closed, the nursery was completely re-decorated and deep cleaned. All staff have completed COVID19 safety training.

When children arrive, they will have their temperature taken and hand sanitiser applied. Throughout the day, the children wash their hands. Staff also have their temperature taken daily.

Children are kept within their age group bubbles and the same staff will look after them.

Tapestry, the nursery and parent online communication tool, will be regularly updated with photos and activities that they're doing, so you can see what fun your children are having!

If you're looking for nursery provision and would like to have a look around, please give Woodpeckers a call to arrange a time to look around and ask any questions.

But most importantly, despite the changes they've had to make, Woodpeckers is still the same family-run nursery, the offers a warm and friendly welcome, with a home from home ethos.
