Higher Folds 2 Year Olds Nursery and pre-school opened in April 2014 in Higher Folds Community Centre and we are an established nursery that plays an important and key role in the early year’s education of local children. It is the only 2 year olds funded nursery in the area.
The Nursery is fully equipped for the education of 2, 3 and 4 year olds and has excellent free flow indoor and outdoor facilities for children to learn and play.
In December 2017 the Nursery was inspected by Ofsted and received a “Good” rating. To maintain this and continually improve we always strive to be outstanding in the activities and facilities we offer children and parents.
To introduce new ideas and continue the success of the Nursery we have an excellent working relationship with Wigan Council Early Years team and other local nurseries who we always share good practice with.
The Nursery is an open plan room with accessible toilets for the children. The Community Centre and Nursery are fully accessible for children, parents and carers with a ramp on entry, wide entrance doorways and disabled toilet facilities.
The Nursery session times are mornings 9.00-12.00, afternoon sessions 12.30-3.30 and full days 9.30-3.30.
There is a maximum capacity of 28 children who may attend the Nursery at any one time.
The nursery employs six members of staff and volunteers also support the children, the Nursery Manager is qualified to level 4 Management and Leadership. The Pre-school Deputy currently has a level 3. One practitioner has recently completed leadership and management training. We also have one practitioner level 3 and one with level 2 Childcare training and a trainee level 1.
