The Woodland Pre-School welcomes children of all abilities from the village of Downley and surrounding areas. Our philosophy is one of learning through play and exploration, with love and laughter. We combine this with a carefully thought out curriculum, ensuring the on-going all round development of all the children entrusted to our care.
