Putnoe Woods Preschool

Putnoe Woods offers affordable day care and early years education for children aged 6 months to 5 years old, for families who live and / or works in the area.

We strive to be a fun, affordable, inclusive Early Years setting where children are welcomed, valued and encouraged to reach their full potential in a safe and nurturing environment. We strive to develop our parental partnerships as parents are their child's first educators'

The preschool offers three playrooms with activities and equipment designed for 3 levels of development through the child preschool journey.

Snowdrops provide a home from home environment for our youngest children from 6 months old.

Buttercups is a lovely sunny playroom, with space for messy and discovery play with somewhere to eat and sleep. With direct access to the play garden, it makes an ideal environment for your two-year-old to explore. We offer places to families in receipt of the two-year-old funding.

Bluebells is our largest playroom, with direct access to the all-weather play garden. With areas designed for reading, writing, construction, role play and of course messy play. This is where children are helped to prepare for school.

We offer funded 15 hours’ places and funded 30 hour places.

We are a charity run preschool based in the Putnoe area of Bedford. We have been providing excellent early years care and education since 1981. We work hard to create a safe and stimulating setting which can provide your child with the ideal first independent step in their lives. The preschool is very busy and frequently near capacity, so it is never too early to register for a place. Families are welcome to come for a look around to see what we do. Please phone to arrange a visit. Opening during school holidays allows us to offer affordable care throughout the year whether you work or your child just enjoys being with us.

Our staff range from level 2 to level 5 in Early Years Childcare qualifications.
