Our nursery

We are extremely fortunate to have our own 52 place Nursery Attached to the school. Children may enter our Nursery when they are 3 and most children transfer to Reception in the September after their 4th birthday. Places are offered in line with our admissions policy and a waiting list is held in the main school office. Places are rare in the Summer Term but we aim to accommodate all those on our waiting list for the September intake. In September priority will always be given to those children due to start in Reception the following year.

Our Nursery is an intrinsic part of our school. The children in Nursery wear uniform, follow the same reminders as the rest of the school, follow our Creative Learning Journey and generally feel a part of Lionwood Infant and Nursery School. We see this as a positive way to provide a smooth transition from Nursery to Reception and also for children and their families to feel a part of the school.

The Nursery Staff work closely with the Reception staff to ensure that learning is continuous and progressive and that children in the Foundation Stage receive the best start to their educational lives.

Our aim is for parents to feel part of their children’s learning and our ‘Open door’ policy is there to ensure that if you have any queries or concerns you can always call in for a chat.
