Lady Seaward's Nursery

Little Dragon's PreSchool is now part of the Lady Seaward’s Primary School family, as of 1st January 2024.


Welcome to Lady Seaward’s Nursery!


Based within our Foundation Stage Unit (FSU), our Nursery children work alongside Reception to experience a progressive curriculum covering all aspects of EYFS. 


We accept children into our Nursery class from 2 years, but the early years entitlement funding will begin the term after their third birthday.


The classroom is divided into dedicated areas to allow free flow play in all the areas of learning including a role play corner, numeracy area, messy play area, book corner etc.  The children also have access to a safe and secure outdoor play space with multiple learning areas.


When your child is about to transfer from the Nursery to Reception, you will need to apply to the Local Authority through the normal admissions process. 


We welcome visits from parents/carers to our school; please contact the school office to make an appointment.
