The Partou experience

At Partou, the children lead the way. They explore their surroundings and learn about the world they live in, by choosing for themselves which activity they want to join in with next.

Our team are there to care for them and keep them safe. To nurture their emerging abilities and encourage them to seize each fun-packed day. But not to tell them what to do next.

Why? Because when children are allowed to choose their own activities, rather than being told what to do, they naturally choose the activities they’re most interested in. And scientific research has shown that being interested in what they’re doing is the easiest and best way for children to learn.

Food & nutrition

Creating healthy eating habits for young children stretches far beyond their time with us. It encourages a lifelong positive relationship with food whilst building healthy bodies and healthy minds. Here’s how we encourage healthy eating habits:

  • Rotating menus: Evidence shows regular exposure to foods helps children to develop their taste for them, yet we still want to offer variety. So, we rotate our menus on a three-to-four-week basis, offering the perfect balance between exposing children to new foods yet allowing them to become familiar with flavours.
  • A lunchtime focus: We prioritise lunch as a time where children can enjoy their food. There is a social aspect to all lunches and, where possible, children are encouraged to take an active interest in the food they eat.
  • Fresh food everyday: We serve children fresh food every day and accommodate many different dietary requirements. We have procedures in place to protect children with food allergies and offer different meal options too. If your child has a dietary requirement, simply let us know as part of our registration process and we’ll make sure we meet the needs of your child.

The staff and facilities at Woodlands are great! Our child is 3 and currently in the preschool room, but has been since was 11 months old. Each room has met her needs and provided her with fun and plenty of chances to develop. She loves the forest school most of all!

My son was barely speaking or playing nicely with other children before he started at Woodland Park. He would never share and would always be angry. But his speech has come along nicely in a short time to the point that he passed his 2-and-a-half-year assessment yesterday. He is always kept entertain...

My little boy loves going to nursery. I love that they give me a breakdown of everything they’ve done and eaten! They get to know them on a personal level and are always doing fun activities. There’s nothing more reassuring than knowing your child is being well cared for. Thank you.

Lovely nursery with great facilities, in a lovely setting with fantastic staff, but very expensive. Parents have just been subjected to a huge 12% cost increase during cost of living crisis, after already having costs increased during Covid. I understand costs have gone up, but for some parents, this...
