Welcome to Nursery at Lakeside
In our nursery we have children who are 'rising 3s' who are almost 3 years old, 3 year olds and 4 year olds. We offer 15 and 30 hour contracts for children - please contact the school office for more information on this offer.
Our nursery team are:
Miss Evans, Miss Coulling, Miss Cartwright, Mrs Hancock and Miss Mee
Children will have a key worker who works closely with them during their time in nursery.
In the EYFS (nursery and reception) we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. We plan for learning across the 7 areas of learning:
Communication and language
Personal, social and emotional development
Understanding the world
Expressive arts and design
In nursery, we build upon children's ideas and interests, responding in the moment or through planned experiences to support each child's learning and development. We take every opportunity to follow the children's interests and fascinations, creating an engaging,
irreststible and inspiring environment that children can immerse themselves in.
