Extra Curricular Activities at Coteswood House Pre-School and Day Nursery in Woodthorpe, Nottingham

Extra Curricular Activities

Coteswood House Pre-School and Day Nursery have weekly, optional French lessons where children can learn French through singing and fun games. For instance  our school is lucky enough to have monthly forest school outings, these are free of charge. In addition a group of children are taken to local outdoor areas by a qualified forest school practitioner along with staff from Coteswood House Pre-School and Day Nursery. Above all forest school is an inspirational experience that offers children opportunities to learn and develop self-esteem and confidence through hands on learning in the outdoor environment. After all that the children also perform at least one concert during the school year, an event enjoyed by all!

Coteswood House Pre-School and Day Nursery always available to discuss your Child's Development


Coteswood has an open door policy which makes us available as much as we can to discuss a child’s development. For instance we use Tapestry which is an online learning journal, this is completely interactive for parents and allows parents to follow their child’s development and also add to their child’s profile. Furthermore once a year we have parent’s evenings and also every child receives an end of year report.



My son started at Coteswood in February and I can’t speak more highly of the pre-school. He absolutely loves his days there and the staff are all a pleasure to deal with. I get regular observations so I’m always up to speed with what my son is up to. The availability of longer days is also perfect for full-time working parents like us – I struggled to find that anywhere else. We’re all so glad that we chose Coteswood!

Quite possibility the best Pre- School in Nottingham – it is just like a home from home. Oscar adores it here and the Staff are out-standing. He has settled extremely well this term and looks forward to every morning … (he has) gained so much confidence in a short period of time, he is really flourishing in this beautiful setting.

I can’t praise Coteswood highly enough for helping my little boy settle in … he has loved it since day one! He goes off smiling every day and tells me he “loves school!”

The staff are warm, welcoming and genuinely care about your child. The children are friendly and polite and the activities are fun and educational. If you are looking for somewhere for your child where their imagination, love of learning and creativity will be encouraged and nurtured and in a small, caring school environment then Coteswood is definitely the place for you.

Testimonial of ex-pupil Charlie Brown at Coteswood House School

I had the best time of my life at this school and remember crying on my last day as if it was yesterday. I’ve loads of cracking old photos (13 years+ old) that I’ll dig out when I get home. I think I’ve still got the video footage of when we all appeared on GMTV and the local news, not forgetting singing for S Club 7. Wishing you all the luck in the world xx.
