Elmscot Woodlands Day Nursery Award-winning practice delivered by experienced practitioners

Welcome to Elmscot Woodlands Day Nursery in Timperley

Elmscot Woodlands Day Nursery and Nursery School is located on Ridgeway Road in Timperley, less than a mile from Elmscot Altrincham.

‘Ofsted Outstanding’, we are the only nursery in Trafford to hold the coveted daynurseries.co.uk regional Top 20 award 2020, which is based solely on parent recommendation.  Our nursery is located within green belt land in Timperley, surrounded by open fields.  Our idyllic location enables much of our time to be spent outdoors, in the greenbelt countryside or our large garden, with artificial safety-grass, separate baby area and a covered area for all weather play.  We share magical experiences, such as going on a bear hunt, creating woodland clay creatures or Forest school, developing children’s confidence, wellbeing and love of the natural world.

Our child-led active learning environment stimulates little imaginations.  Extensive play resources excite and inspire children to play and learn together or independently.  With an abundance of adventures and experiences including music, dance, art, design, cooking, sport and imaginative play, every child can learn naturally through enjoyment, play and socialising with others.

We nurture life-long learners with the creativity to grow and adapt, whatever the future holds.  Our curriculum is developed by qualified early years’ teachers following the EYFS framework, ensuring that learning is fun, rewarding and effective.  Our highly qualified team use creative approaches indoors and out to develop key skills such as numeracy, literacy, or fine motor skills, working towards school readiness.

Adapting to new settings can be challenging.  Our award-winning team offer incredible warmth and understanding to the little ones in our care and their families.  Children are individually supported to reach their full potential, with activities tailored to their stage and learning style, nurturing confidence and happiness. As the most important people in their child’s life, our parents are closely involved with parent sessions, weekly menus, news and achievements and daily updates from their child’s key worker via the Tapestry app.

The children’s award-winning food is prepared using fresh, locally-sourced ingredients.  Our menus, approved by a registered dietician, are both healthy and expose the children to the most amazing foods and flavours.

It has a private car park for your convenience. The nursery is registered for 57 children.

We have places available for those receiving 2-year-old childcare funding. To check your eligibility, visit the Trafford Council website
