Welcome to St Lawrence's Day Nursery & Pre School Nurseries

As a mother to 3 children, I fully understand the importance of confidence and trust that is needed when thinking about placing your child in the care of others.

St Lawrence’s nursery was opened in 1999 and I went on to set up St Lawrence’s Day Nursery Pre-school in 2021. I know how important it is to maintain a good team of nursery nurses. We pride ourselves at St Lawrence’s nursery and Pre-school on having a very low staff turn over, with some staff still working for me from when the nursery first opened in 1999. When recruiting staff, they are carefully selected not solely on their professional qualifications, but on their dedication, enthusiasm, and ability to lovingly care for the children. Staff are responsible for providing a stimulating and fun environment as well as catering for the individual needs of each child at every stage of development.

Our Philosophy

We offer an enabling environment where all children are offered the same experiences to explore and learn. We meet the needs of every individual child, ensuring they become confident learners and flourish in all areas of development during their time with us.

At St Lawrence’s Nursery and Pre-school we offer a friendly, warm and welcoming environment, where children feel at home and parents know the children are well cared for and loved.

What Our Moms & Dads Say

Mr & Mrs C

To the wonderful team of St Lawrence’s Ladies who work with my little boy and all those behind the scenes also: the cook, cleaner, DIY man, the social calendar keeper and more.

Being an older mum, unfortunately my parents who worked in the front line for the NHS now have mobility and health issues meaning they cannot help me. You are my village, the wisdom of my nan no longer with us, my caring arms when my child is upset or hurt, calming, creative and dependable. You make it possible for me to work and occasionally rest! You make me a better mum and I am extremely grateful.

You shape and change the lives of the children for the better. They learn your ways. Your put a part of yourself, your personality in to every single day you care for him and the other children. Thank you very much!

Mrs B

Thank you so much for the amazing start St Lawrence has given my son and daughter. You create such a special environment and as a working mum that’s such a comfort.

Mr & Mrs M

As a setting you have always gone above and beyond in advice, care and reassurance and we will always be appreciative of the special time given during our children’s most formative years.

Mr & Mrs H

It really is, in my opinion, the best nursery around. The emphasis on learning through fun and developing happy, sociable children has given our children the best start in life. You all work so hard creating such a positive environment for the children.
