We have a combined nursery and reception class which provides education for children the term after they turn 3. Our nursery is a safe and exciting place where children learn, develop, have fun and are nurtured and cared for. We have an outdoor area that the children use daily. Both our outdoor and indoor areas are carefully resourced to engage children and promote development of key skills. Our Nursery teachers; Mrs Buck and Mrs Andrews are looking forward to welcoming you and your child. If you would like to come and look round please get in touch.

The First Days

Any children wishing to join the Early Years class at Lazonby School will be invited to attend transition sessions prior to their entry into school. These are designed around your child as every child is different and will settle differently.

Helping your child settle into school is very important to us and we are happy to work alongside you to make it as easy as possible for you and your child. We hope that your child’s time in school will be a very happy and productive one. If you have any queries or if we can be of any help, please contact the school at any time.


The Curriculum

The curriculum is based upon the following seven areas of learning:


The Prime Areas:

·         Communication and Language

·         Personal, Social and Emotional Development

·         Physical Development


 The Specific Areas:

·         Literacy

·         Mathematics

·         Understanding the World

·         Expressive Arts and Design


 We will provide opportunities for the children to learn in these areas both through play and with more structured activities. We also use your child’s needs and interest to plan challenging and enjoyable activities and experiences.

 The Early Years framework identifies three characteristics of effective teaching and learning:

·         Playing and Exploring

·         Active Learning

·         Creating and Thinking Critically


We build strong relationships with parents to understand the child as whole, knowing how they learn both in and out of school. One of the ways we do this is through Tapestry.
