Laurel Avenue Community Primary School Nursery

Starting your child in our school nursery is a wonderful way to start their learning adventure and introduce them to school life and our vibrant, caring community.

We recognise that for any parent or carer, choosing the best nursery provision is of paramount importance. We are delighted to offer a nursery which promotes high standards of education in a safe, spacious and stimulating environment.

We have a team of dedicated, experienced and fully qualified teachers and teaching assistants who are committed to making the most of endless opportunities for your child. Mrs Lawson, our Foundation Stage Manager, received a Primary Science Teaching Award and so has access to fabulous resources and science opportunities which she brings to our nursery.

Mrs Fawcett has a wealth of experience working with Nursery children. Miss Hughes and Miss Browbank are experienced practitioners in the early years, working with our two-year old children.

If your child has a special educational need, our coordinator is Ms Davison, the Headteacher; she has a wealth of experience and has achieved the National Special Educational Needs Coordination Award. Children who enjoy a challenge and are ready for higher level learning through play, work with our Reception Teacher, Mrs Meehan, as part of their nursery experience.

Our nursery inside is spacious - the size of two large classrooms with private toilet area, kitchen and a changing room. It is fully equipped with the latest technology - large interactive whiteboard, interactive desktops and iPads are available for children to use. Nursery has many areas which are regularly changed and are often based on the interest of the current children in our nursery, including sensory area, role play, construction, mark making, funky fingers for coordination, tough trays full of ever changing activities based on current interests and topic areas, sand, water and an art studio.
