Pre-school Nursery Outdoor Play Out of School

Welcome to The Woodlands nursery.

Ofsted OutstandingWoodlands opened in April 2012 and was inspected by Ofsted in October 2012. The setting was graded as OUTSTANDING and was inspected again in May 2013 retaining their OUTSTANDING grade. The company re-registered as a limited company and was inspected again in May 2014 achieving a third OUTSTANDING grade.

We are Open 7.30-6.00pm daily (we offer 7.00am - 6.30pm at an extra charge), with the exception of bank holidays and a week at Christmas.

The nursery is nestled amongst 39 acres of countryside on a large golf course on the outskirts of Melton Mowbray. The building was purpose-built and is all on ground level. Each room has facilities for the children to freely flow between the outside and inside, choosing where they want to play. The covered deck ensures children can play outside even when it is very wet. The nursery has large secure gardens that have been designed for imaginative and creative play, leaving the children to determine their own games whether it be in the mud kitchen, tree den or sensory rooms.

The setting offers places for both all-year and Term-time children, saving over £2000 on annual fees for a place if it is not required in the holidays. A Breakfast and tea club is provided from local primary schools and a holiday club to keep the children engaged during the school holidays. We are lucky to have separate areas of play so are able to offer a sessional pre-school in addition to the nursery.

The nursery has the use of the multi-use room next door for physical activities during the day, PE sessions and hot dinners. These are an excellent additional that build on children's confidence and independence and helps with the transition to school. The after school club also take advantage of this facility to enjoy a larger space away from the nursery children.

The nursery is located on Asfordby Road in Melton Mowbray. However, if this location is not convenient to you, we have a sister site on Scalford Road, Park lane Nursery.

Please have a look at the website and prospectus and feel free to visit us at any time.


The most amazing place for children to learn and play. The whole staff team are amazing and the atmosphere is fantastic.
