The Wendy House Nursery Ltd

Nursery History

We are a family run business, who are offering affordable and flexible childcare to local families, with a strong focus on teaching and learning. During our recent Ofsted visit in February 2017, we were graded 'Good' in all areas. We have a good team consisting of experienced and qualified practitioners. We encourage parents to be involved in their child's learning and send home weekly learning letters. We have complete end of term reports and have two parent's evenings per year. 

We have nursery places available for children aged 0-5 years. We also have places available for school holiday club.

Healthy meals and snacks are prepared on site. We have been awarded a 5* Food Hygiene Rating by Environmental Health - we have maintained this for the past two years.

Learning & Play


Staff are constantly evaluating the quality and consistency of learning within the nursery. We have high standards and believe all children deserve the very best learning opportunities.

We take great pride in the children’s Learning Journeys and ensure parent’s view them on a regular basis.

A Unique Child

Our nursery has a very loving atmosphere and all practitioners are passionate about creating such a loving environment. The environment is almost all open plan, which is highly stimulating and educational.

We have a strong focus on Every Child Matters and every individual has sensitive needs which must be met. Each child has their own key worker, which is responsible for the child's wellbeing on a daily basis.

We have a high emphasis on equal opportunities and plan activities to each individual child's needs.

Enabling Environment


Our nursery is mainly open plan, although we do have clearly defined areas. We have a baby room, which is separated into two rooms. One room is multi-sensory, which is ideal for relaxing and sleep. The other room is equipped for messy play and has access to outdoors. Our toddler room is spacious and inviting, with direct access to the bathroom to promote independence with hand washing and toilet training. Pre-school is our largest room, which is at the heart of nursery. Again this room promotes independence and has a strong focus on teaching and learning. The outdoor area again has two sections, one of which is under shelter. So whatever, the weather children will have access to the outdoors. The area is safe and secure, with exciting learning opportunities, which are accessed daily.

Positive Relationships

We have a strong emphasis on working with parents and all children are allocated a key person. Weekly learning letters inform parents of or activities for the week and we welcome parent contribution.

Practitioners speak with parents during drop off and picking up times and meet regularly with parents to discuss progress.

We work with many professionals within the Wigan area, to ensure we are offering the best practice possible. We work with the Local Authority to ensure we implement new strategies, we also work with speech and language therapists, health visitors and physio therapists.
