Classes

Lakeland Nursery is committed to your child’s future. We have experienced staff who work hard to mould your child into the right path. We are innovative in our approach. We affirm the worth and potential of every child and help them become the best of what they can be. Our Nursery education is a sure foundation for beginners. Admission into our classes is strictly by age and performance. The classes are: Crèche, Playgroup, Pre Nursery, Nursery and Reception classes.
We focus on and groom children in the six learning areas:

Creative Development

We engage children in art, music and dance. Children are made to act out some books and familiar stories. They are encouraged to have free play while teachers watch and discover talents.

Language Development

We teach our children to read at a very early stage. We encourage them to look through pictures and learn to talk about the pictures and also make up stories on their own. Children get familiar with the sounds of the English language and are able to read in no time.

Mathematical Development

In this area of learning, children are prepared to solve problems at their tender age. They are taught to understand numbers and manipulate them independently as well as match figures with quantities effortlessly. Children should be able to fix simple puzzles.

Personal, Social and Emotional Development

Our children are taught to develop a positive sense of self and to respect other children and adults around them. They are groomed to value others and respect their opinion and religion. Our children are encouraged to share. We believe that children should be independent and do things expected of their age group.

Physical Development

Our children are engaged in physical activities that will help develop their skills of co-ordination and control. They are made to exercise their bodies and develop a spirit of sportsmanship.

Knowledge/Understanding of the world around us

The environment is important to the learners. Children explore the environment they live in and try to find out why things are just the way they are. They want to understand everything that happens around them.
The Crèche: This age group is between 3months and 1 year. It is actually designed to care for infants while their parents are at work. The children are kept happy, fed well and cuddled to sleep. Parents pick up their children at 1:30pm for half day and 5pm for full day.
The Playgroup: The playgroup is a preparatory class for real school. Children who are two years old by 31st August are admitted into the playgroup. Activities in the play group include: Free play, Water splash, Role play, Journey to Letterland, Number awareness, Practical life, Singing/rhymes, Sitting and listening, Nap time, Sand play and Story time.
The Pre-Nursery: Structured learning begins in the pre Nursery class. Your child will mostly be taught through games and play.
The Nursery Class: Entry age into the Nursery is 3 years. Children learn to read and proper letter formation is ensured, as this is much more important than a neat handwriting at the early stage.
The Reception Class: This is the last class in the Nursery section. Reception is the beginning of key stage 1. Learners are much more independent at this stage. Children in the Reception class read and write well for their age grade level. Entry age into the Reception is 4 Children graduate from the Nursery education and go to the Primary school after this class.
Swimming: We have a standard pool. Swimming is always delightful to the children and most of them look forward to their swimming day. Few, who have phobia for water but gradually catch the fun. Other activities are: Sing Along, Nursery Concert and Graduation / Prize - Giving.
