Willow Nursery

Welcome to Willow Nursery

Where children Learn to Care, Share and Shine

At Hethersett Woodside Willow Nursery you are assured of a warm welcome for your child and family. Our environment is warm, welcoming and nurturing and enables children to take their first steps away from  home, whilst teaching them the skills necessary for starting school. Our children feel secure, confident and happy and demonstrate an eagerness to learn.

Willow Nursery is a maintained school nursery, providing care and education for children aged 2-4 years. It is led by our Assistant Head Teacher who oversees all Early Years education across the school and holds a recognised Early Years specialist qualification: Early Years Professional Status (EYPS). She teaches within the nursery alongside a team of experienced practitioners and assistants to deliver outstanding provision.

Our provision is organised into two classes:

  • Hedgehog Class (children aged 2-4 years)
  • Squirrel Class (children aged 3-4 years)

For children aged 3 and over, our breakfast and afterschool club is available to provide families with flexible childcare, throughout term time.

Please see the prospectus for package details and fee structure.

We are a provider of Government funded early years education entitlement. We accept the 15 hours 2 year old entitlement for  eligible working parents or families receiving some additional forms of Government support. In addition for 3 and 4 year olds we accept the universal 15 hours and working families 30 hours entitlement.

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework (EYFS), which continues in our school Reception classes.

Parents and the wider family are important to our work and we offer regular opportunities throughout the year to join us for play sessions and information evenings.

Our Nursery teacher is also the Early Years SENDCO for the school and liaises closely with Speech and Language therapists, health visitors and other professionals to provide tailored support where needed. For  further information please see the SEND section of our website.

For further details of our provision, please view our prospectus.
