An Inspirational Approach

Across our Day Nurseries, our progressive, highly qualified practitioners and teachers are committed to offering children stimulating learning opportunities following the Early Years Foundation Stage which engages each individual child.

Protecting Wellbeing

We promote a healthy lifestyle in a safe, secure environment. Each Nursery has a large purpose-built outdoor play space as well as award-winning indoor learning environments. Nutritionally balanced by a dietitian, our award-winning meals are cooked freshly on site every day. We teach children the skills they need to regulate their own behaviour and to assess risk for themselves.

Exceptional Quality

Our multi award-winning, reflective practice is delivered by knowledgeable and experienced practitioners. Continual investment, external quality assurance and ongoing development, along with our partnerships with parents, schools and the community, ensures we give each child a strong foundation for future learning.

A Nurturing Experience

Each child is supported and valued. We respect differences, encouraging and enabling each unique child to reach their full potential in a welcoming, happy environment.

World Animal Day

Today the children celebrated World Animal Day by looking at animals that live near to them.  We took them for a walk into Tatton Park to see if we could spot some deer.

They were very happy to spot them far away in the distance and we talked about habitats, diets and how the changing weather would affect the deer out in the fields.

Grandparents Day

Today we were celebrating our wonderful Grandparents. The children spent time creating cards and pictures to thank them for all the wonderful things they do.

We also enjoyed looking at pictures of our grandparents and getting the children to talk about what makes their grandparents special to them.

World Mental Health Day

With continuing uncertainty caused by the pandemic, we have increased our mindfulness and wellbeing sessions with the children.

Today we took part in yoga sessions and took some time to discuss our feelings – what makes us feel certain emotions? How we can express those emotions safely?


We are thrilled that Elmscot Woodlands have been awarded the daynurseries.co.uk TOP 20 NORTH WEST NURSERY AWARD 2020.

Based purely on parental reviews, they highlight the most recommended nurseries and Elmscot Woodlands is the only nursery in Trafford to have received an award.

At all our nurseries we prioritise creating the best possible opportunities for our children, and are delighted that the hard work of our teams and incredible experiences we offer have been recognised.

A huge thank you to all of our families who have always passionately supported us and congratulations to everyone who is a part of the Elmscot community!
