Lowther Nursery is fully intergrated within the Foundation Stage of the school
At Lowther Nursery we help children to become enthusiastic and confident learners.
Play is central to the way young children learn and through their experiences in the Nursery they are developing skills and knowledge which are the foundations for all later learning.
When your child is 2 years old you can put their name on the waiting list. They are admitted as soon after their 3rd birthday as possible.
We have two separate sessions daily, each with a maximum of 26 places.
Plus limited places for 8.30am to 3.30pm - Please see further information below

Terms and Conditions for additional hours at Lowther Nursery
T & C PDF  
From 15th January 2018 we will be offering extended hours in our Nursery dependant on availability of spaces.
Current provision (Universal Offer) is 15 hour per week, either 5 mornings 8.30 to 11.30am or 5 afternoons 12.30 to 3.30pm
Extended provision is an additional 15 hours per week
Limited places will be offered to stay 8.30 to 3.30pm (7 hours). For parents who are entitled to 30 hours funding and taking up 5 days per week this will mean that there will be an additional 5 hours per week to pay at £7 per hour.
Priority will be given to parents who are entitled to the 30 hour funding (15 hours Universal and 15 hours Extended) and i. are 'Looked After' children, ii. have exceptional family, social or medical need, iii. have siblings and iv. live nearest to the school. This criterion is in line with the school admission criteria.
For parents who are not entitled to 30 hour funding there is an option to apply for the extended hours at £7 per hour dependant on availability. This could be for 1 or more days per week.
Additionally, we are able to offer a small number of lunch time places from 11.30am to 12.30pm. Morning children have the option to stay an additional hour and afternoon children can arrive one hour earlier. This will be charged at £7 per hour or deducted from any 30 hour funding entitlement.
All extended hours places will need to be booked and paid in advance each half term with Mrs Day in the school office.
Children staying for the lunchtime session will need to be provided with a healthy packed lunch in line with school expectations.
