Tanglewood Nursery School





Little Tanglewood

Little Tanglewood is our 2 to 3 year old provision.

We have a purpose built log cabin, with it's own Little Tanglewood garden and forest area which  caters for 20 children in the morning session and 12 children in the afternoon session.

In the forest area, we also have a purpose built 'bungalow' which we use for individual and small group work with children and also as a meeting place for parents and staff.

The team in Little Tanglewood is led by a senior nursery nurse in each session, supported by 3 other nursery nurses and a learning support assistant. This allows us a ratio of 1-4.

Little Tanglewood is a well resourced class base that develops across the year based on the needs and interests of the children. In addition to this the children have access to the Little Tanglewood garden, forest and bungalow, which provide a wide range of opportunities for children to further enrich their learning.

Every child has a fantastic start to their early education. (Parentview, Ofsted Nov 2018)

 A reminder of what it means to be two

 ‘The Property Laws of the Toddler’ 

  • If I like it, it’s mine.
  • If it’s in my hand its’ mine.
  • If I can take it from you, it’s mine.
  • If it’s mine, it must never appear to be yours, in any way.
  • If I had it a little while ago, its mine.
  • If I’m doing or building something, all the pieces are mine.
  • If it looks just like mine, its mine.
  • If I think it’s mine, it’s mine.
