Willowdown Nursery opened at the beginning of September 2014. Willowdown (phase two, new build) opened in September 2020, this is where our nursery is positioned. Our aim is to help to develop happy children, successful learners and confident individuals within Bridgwater.
Our occupancy allows spaces for 48 children. Our structure allows parents/ carers to book their child in on a half hourly basis, depending on your need.
The Nursery opens between 7am and 6pm, catering for children from two years of age until school age. We are open all year round (50 weeks, we close for the Christmas holidays, and bank holiday's)
Our children are encouraged to learn to share, work and play with others to become independent by encouraging them to think for themselves. They learn to express their feelings and feel good about themselves to boost self-esteem, confidence and well-being. We assign one staff member to have specific responsibility for your child’s progress and well-being. We will work together to support your children and your family as a whole to ensure a smooth transition into and experience of Willowdown Nursery.
We want the children to have the opportunity to develop a love of learning, so that when they move up to their Primary school, they are able to achieve their full potential. The Nursery delivers the 'development matters' to all children, providing a wealth of experiences across all areas of learning, to meet their individual needs.
