Wellies filled with flowers on WUFA railingsWUFA Established in 1969

What we offer and our history 

WUFA is a well established committee run Pre-School that is open from 8.45 am  – 3.15 pm. We are situated within the grounds of Woodstock Primary School thus enabling us to offer a wide range of services to our local community. In Pre-School we take children from 2 years up until their 5th birthday.

We also offer wrap around care from 3 years to 11 years. Due to the high demand in Woodstock we now run this over 2 sites, one site being our WUFA building and the other is within easy and safe distance from the Primary School.


Our dedicated team work closely with all of our individual children and plan according to their age, interests and ability. We have a lovely play area outside which includes a sand pit, climbing frame and a mud kitchen. Learning can be fun both inside and outside at WUFA!


In April 2017 WUFA had a full OFSTED inspection, we received a solid good overall with outstanding in Leadership and Management. Due to a recent name change from “Woodstock Under Fives” to WUFA our inspection report can not be easily found on line. A hard copy can be found in our front hall and also under our documents on this website. This was a name change only due to our Charity status, all other Terms remain the same.

Mission Statement

To work in partnership with families and the community to provide a safe, stimulating and nurturing environment environment so all children can learn and develop through play

Management Committee and Staff information

WUFA is run by a volunteer management committee. Under OFSTED regulations we are legally required to have a Chair, Secretary, Treasurer and 2 other members at any one time. As a parent/carer/guardian when you look at WUFA for your childcare please also consider offering your services. We are not allowed to run without this volunteer committee.

We have a very strong team of qualified staff ranging from Level 2 in Early Years up to Level 5 in Early Years. Our staff have higher qualifications than Ofsted requires and always try and have a higher staff ratio than required
