“If it doesn’t lead to learning, if it doesn’t make sense to children, then it shouldn’t be there!” Paddy Beels of Wingate Nursery and Children’s Centre made that statement passionately when I interviewed her for this case study. While most people would agree with her, what does that actually look like in practice? Paddy led this centre from its conception, and the creative exuberance is evident when you open the nursery door.

Now I know why I've been told so many times, “you must visit Wingate!” Join me for a peek in at this exceptional setting.
