Make friends, have fun and learn

Thanks for visiting!

We hope you can find everything you need. Woodland Pals Preschool, is focused on providing high-quality service and childcare.

Woodland Pals is a privately owned preschool for 0-5 year old children and has been open since September 2012.  We operate from Kirton and Falkenham Village hall, Falkenham Road, Kirton IP10 0QW, our aim is to provide a happy, relaxed and safe learning environment for all our children.  We encourage the children to engage in activities to promote their developing skills and enhance their learning.  Woodland Pals is somewhere they can come to make friends, have fun, learn and develop.


We are OFSTED registered and we have a friendly team who are always available to help you with any queries, Julie Gardiner has over 14 years experience and holds her NVQ level 4 in early childhood studies and at least half of the staff are trained to a level 2 or equivalent

Our staff ratio is one adult to every  three 0-2 year olds, one adult to every four 2 year olds and one adult to every eight 3+ year olds.  There will always be a qualified first aider present during all sessions.

At Woodland Pals we believe that children learn better when they are having fun and feel happy and secure and our preschool offers a variety of activities and equipment to aid this.  We provide opportunities for the children to express themselves and make decisions through creative play, spontaneous play, adult led activities, educational visitors and outings.  We will work closely with the parents/guardians of all our children to help them achieve their best and become confident independent individuals.
