At St Lawrence’s Nursery we believe that it’s important for children to engage in exploratory, sensory and physical activities to build their confidence, self-esteem and resilience.  Children follow their interests and are supported by qualified practitioners to access all areas of the curriculum through their play.

Our values of ‘caring, considerate and courageous’ are at the heart of everything we do.

What we offer?

  • A stimulating and secure environment.
  • Superb resources, indoors and out, providing varied experiences to help children grow and develop.
  • Varied and enriched play opportunities – key to your child’s early years learning.
  • An experienced, highly qualified team dedicated to caring for your child.
  • Flexibility of sessions to suit your family needs.
  • Nursery children have separate learning sessions where they will learn phonics, maths and literacy.
  • Shared space with Reception children enableing a smooth transition for Nursery children into the Rception class.

Session times

Nursery is able to offer full and half day sessions from 8.30am – 3.00pm.


Early Years funding can be used (15 or 30 hours) for all 3 and 4 year olds – please click here for more information and links to apply for funding.

If you are not entitled to 30 hours free funding, and would like additional sessions, they are available for a cost of £13.00 per session and £3.00 for the lunch session.  When children do full days in Nursery they can either have a hot school lunch or bring a packed lunch from home.  Hot school lunches are £2.55 per day and are charged on ParentPay.

Parents as Partners

Working in partnership with parents and carers is central to the early years foundation stage (EYFS).  We use Tapestry, an online journal to share your child’ learning journey with you.  We also welcome parents into all our Early Years settings.

We are so excited to share our outstanding Early Years provision with you.  If you would like to visit us, please contact the School Office.  We would love to show you around!
