Wonder Woods Woodland Nursery

Wonder Woods is our exciting new woodland nursery, at Harburn nr. West Calder, that opened in August. It is for 2 ½ year olds to school age and is rooted in nature, as West Lothian’s first fully woodland nursery.

We spend our days exploring and having adventures, as we play in and around the woodland, engage with nature, enjoy the campfire, and experience the tranquillity of our natural world.

Everyone has made our son feel safe and nurtured from the start: his testimony is that you are definitely doing things right! He is definitely more confident. He is more observant when we walk in the woods and he will point out birds, mushrooms and different leaves. Things he never used to do. There is nothing we would change.

We are now fully open and taking bookings. As a partnership nursery with West Lothian Council, parents can use their free allocation of funded childcare hours for their child to enjoy and have adventures in our woods. Contact us for more information on how to arrange this.
