About the employer

Woolton Village Day Nursery is a large, detached, Grade 2 listed building located in the heart of Woolton in Liverpool. It is situated in a residential area, close to shops, local schools, swing parks and a library.

The grounds have been purposefully adapted to accommodate the children on the Early Years Register, who will follow the Early Years Foundation Curriculum. The setting provides a bright, friendly happy and homely atmosphere. The children are divided into three age groups, 0 - 2 years, 2 - 3 years, and 3 - 5 years.

All rooms are designed to ensure that both equipment and resources are age appropriate, stimulating and challenging for the specific age group. The children also have use of our multi-sensory room.

This room is used for key worker activities to allow small groups of children to engage in activities to enhance their sensory skills. This is supported through the use of different textiles, lights, smells, torches, and a bubble machine. Staff will encourage the children to develop hand eye coordination and challenging experiences.
