What we offer and our history 

Woodstock Under Fives Association (WUFA ) is a well established committee run Pre-School that is open from 8.45am  – 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 (Note: End time can vary depending on age ranges).

In January 2016 WUFA took on a new management team and immediate changes took place, such as a much needed new bathroom, hallway and new flooring. We also received a grant which has enabled us to order new equipment for 2 year olds.

The 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!

Mission Statement

Our mission at WUFA is to provide good and affordable childcare to Woodstock and surrounding areas.

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 6 in Early Years. Our staff have higher qualifications than Ofsted requires and by the end of 2016 we hope  that all our staff will have a full and relevant First Aid qualification.
