Our preschool is located in the community building on the Woodlands Community College site. It is a separate expansive room with a large play-loft and areas for different group activities - a cosy book corner, craft area, sand and water play, physical activity and construction areas. There is easy direct access to the outside area enabling children to choose easily where they would like to play. This leads round the side of the building to a larger play area

Manager's Message

Dawn 2.jpg

Hi, I'm Dawn

and I am the manager here at Paint Pots at Woodlands. I have an NVQ Level 3 Diploma for the Children and Young People’s Workforce (QCF)

I have worked at Paint Pots for 4 years and have a passion for providing high quality and stimulating childcare and always ensure that our ethos of ‘love, laughter and learning’ is at the heart of all we do. As a Mum myself I know how important this is.

 My team and I are enthusiastic, hardworking, nurturing and dedicated. We range from being newly qualified to being Grandparents and really do feel as though we are part of a Paint Pots family.

We are beginning to adopt a ‘Curiosity Approach’ style of learning. This is a modern approach to early childhood, taking influence from Reggio, Steiner and Te Whariki. We provide children with a natural environment in which they can discover the world around them.

Please do come and say hello, and don’t forget your slippers!
