"I have now been working for Little Orchard Montessori since 2015, I started whilst I was studying my level 3 child care and now I’m lucky enough to be the Manager of the Woodlands nursery and School Club.
I love seeing the children thrive within our setting, we are surrounded by lovely gardens, the local park, school field and playground. We work in partnership with the school attending 'thinking and doing' sessions with the reception classes as well as running the breakfast and after school club on site too.
I am very proud of my team and what we achieve on a daily basis. We all work together to get the best outcome for the children. Our environment is calm, caring, stimulating and secure."
Hannah Dalby, Setting Manager
Little Orchard Woodlands Montessori Nursery is situated in the grounds of Woodlands Park Primary School, Ivybridge and conveniently is just five minutes from the A38.
The Devon nursery setting is divided into areas by shelving and has a separate area for children under two. Older children are welcome to go to the younger areas, so that siblings and friends can be with each other if they wish to; and should the children want to rest they can curl up in one of our cosy nests for sleeping.
Woodlands Montessori Nursery is open from 8am - 6pm and offers the children breakfast, a two course hot lunch produced by a qualified chef, high tea and snacks. Children are also welcome to bring their own food from home. For more information on our food click here.
Our beautiful outside facilities include raised beds, a sand pit and a hard floor area for water play and painting. We are fortunate that we are able to use the school playing field and are very close to the local park for nature walks.
Children attending Woodlands nursery move on to a variety of primary schools in the Devon area due to our large catchment area. However, we work very closely with Woodlands School sharing expertise, training and resources, making us the ideal choice for children who will attend Woodlands School.
