Woodside Pre School is a partner of the South Pennine Academies


Dear Parents and Carers

A very warm welcome to you and thank you for choosing Woodside Pre School. We are at the start of an incredibly exciting journey and we look forward to working with you and your child as we build and create a Pre School which will provide the highest quality education.

We will offer you a learning environment where your children will be inspired to learn and achieve to the very best of their ability. We want high standards in work, behaviour and the quality of relationships. We want your children to love coming to Pre School. We want children to feel safe, develop strong friendships, have fun and have the confidence to explore new challenges.

We believe very strongly in working closely with parents and carers, as you know your children best. Together we will provide them with encouragement and security to enable them to thrive during their early years. The staff will work hard with you to ensure that your children are happy at Pre School and achieve the results they deserve.

We are proud of the community we serve and we welcome input from parents, local businesses, organisations and professionals to enrich the learning experience. We will ensure your child acquires skills and attitudes which will benefit them long after they leave Woodside Pre School.

We guarantee to keep you fully informed about your child’s progress with regular reports and discussions throughout the year. If you have any concerns, I promise they will be speedily and effectively resolved.

Education should be enjoyable, interesting and challenging. Young people will, in the years ahead, need a wide range of knowledge, skills and abilities. It is our responsibility to ensure that your child has every opportunity for success.

Woodside Pre School have an open door policy and parents are always welcome to visit and see the Pre School in action. Please contact the office to make an appointment. I look forward very much to celebrating our successes with you in the coming months.

We look forward to working with you to achieve this.
