The EYFS is a very important stage as it helps your child get ready for school as well as preparing them for their future learning and successes. From when your child is born their early years experiences should be happy, active, exciting, fun and secure to support their learning and development.
At The Lawns Children's Nurseries we are committed to having 100% of our in ratio Early Years Practitioners, Paediatirc First Aid trained.
We ensure our staff are trained by the highest quality professionals who deliver paediatric first aid training.
The Lawns Children's Nursery has been working with D R Firstaid for many years. We are able to offer parents/carers the opportunity to attend the paediatric first aid course, to help you in dealing with first aid. If you are interested in attending one of our courses, please let us know.
To enable your child to successfully transition into school, to succeed in school and beyond, The Lawns Children’s Nursery has an exclusive School Readiness Programme.
The School Readiness Programme has been created in partnership with Reception teachers and is based on the Early Years Foundation Stage Profile.
The School Readiness Programme has been designed to be fun and captures your child’s desire to learn.
The School Readiness Programme will start an academic year prior to your child starting school.
Regular ‘top tip’s’ will be sent to our families on the School Readiness Programme. By working together with parents / carers we can make the move to school a positive and exciting experience.
The Lawns Children’s Nursery Educational Programmes have been carefully created to support your child throughout their early learning journey, preparing them with the confidence, skills and abilities to succeed at school and beyond.

We have a strong understanding that leaving a young child for the first time can be an overwhelming and daunting prospect for both the parents/carers and children. This is why we offer up to 3 settling sessions - and they are free.
At your first settling session, these are the things we will go through with you:
Environments are very important in early years and are now referred to as the ‘third educator’ thanks to Loris Malaguzzi, a prominent Italian Early Years Educator and Philosopher. Malaguzzi recognises that the ‘first educator’ is the parent and the ‘second educator’ is the nursery/pre-school in terms of importance.
The Lawns Children’s Nursery has spent a considerable amount of time making sure our environments will support and provide high quality experiences that allow your child’s individual needs and preferences to be met throughout each day. For example, we have sourced beautiful wooden furniture that is ergonomically designed to support the growing bodies of our youngest children. This furniture ensures that children are sat properly for their age and that their spines are supported. It is also designed to allow independence at an early age, which in turn promotes confidence and self-esteem.
The Lawns Children’s Nursery’s environments are also designed to be calm and are decorated with neutral colours. This promotes concentration and provides a stronger learning environment that is not over-stimulating and distracting.
