Supporting your child’s well-being is of the utmost importance. We aim to nurture children’s physical health, alongside mental and emotional wellbeing, through activities such as Mini Yoga, sensory play and mindfulness.
We also encourage our children to take an active role in cooking and baking. All this helps your child to navigate the pressures of growing up in today’s world and feel happy, comfortable and safe in the nursery environment.

Our holistic approach to Early Years education ensures our children understand how to keep healthy and balanced minds and bodies.
Through a whole host of learning opportunities, from growing their own fruit and vegetables to our outdoor learning activities, we plan and deliver a curriculum which promotes ‘healthy living’.
This makes sure our children know how they can contribute towards keeping themselves healthy and happy for life.
Food and Nutrition
Eating a healthy, balanced diet is one of the most important parts of living a healthy lifestyle. At Wood Wharf Kindergarten, we adopt a nutritious menu that offers a balanced mix of dishes.
Our chefs prepare fresh meals and snacks in our kitchens every day. We also offer cookery classes, which help to teach children about food preparation and nutrition.
Our expertly planned daily menus, including a minimum of five portions of fruit and veg, aim to ensure that we deliver a balanced menu that supports every child's growth and development.
We serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, plus morning and afternoon snacks.

Outdoor learning and play are essential to child development, which is why at Wood Wharf Kindergarten, all children spend time outside every day.
Our safe and secure outdoor area is designed to spark children’s creativity and encourage physical development, with activities such as climbing, balancing, riding, playing ball games and completing obstacle courses.
The outdoor area also includes a vegetable patch where children can learn about growing their own food and caring for the environment.
We also learn outside the nursery with Forest School-inspired learning experiences providing regular access to the outdoors and greenery - we even organise trips to the local farm!
We care for our world by using eco-friendly learning resources and sustainably sourced food – we even have our own veg patch.Learn more
Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do at Wood Wharf Kindergarten.
Through our focus on looking after our planet, we aim to set the foundations in our children for an environmentally responsible adulthood.
We use eco-friendly learning resources, cook sustainably sourced food and help our children develop an awareness of how they can reduce their carbon footprint.
Caring for the environment is a core part of our learning. Our outdoor area includes planting stations and a vegetable patch, where children learn to grow their own food.
And through our outdoor learning sessions, our children are encouraged to take a keen interest in the natural world - including learning all about plants and other living creatures - such as building bug hotels and collecting natural materials.
