Leiston Primary School Nursery

We are committed to do the very best for every child. We strive to provide an environment that is child centred, one that captures the imagination and curiosity of all children and promotes learning through their play.

Helping our children to become confident and accomplished lifelong learners.



At Leiston Primary School Nursery we believe Child-initiated play supports children to develop their own ideas and be in control of their learning. It enables them to learn through first-hand experiences and to develop their resilience and independence. 


Your child will:

  • Have access to high-quality continuous provision that is planned to meet the needs of the children throughout a session.
  • Have a Qualified teacher-led session.
  • Adults who know your child's next step,  playing alongside them, challenging and teaching throughout the play.
  • Weekly sessions to develop their Personal, Social and Emotional Development.
  • Targeted Communication and Language activities. 
  • Taught cookery and gardening skills.
  • A range of sessions, which include the funded 15 hours, 30 hours sessions (where eligible) and the option to add extra paid sessions.


I was amazed by how much progress my child made at Little Avocet Nursery. She loved going and it really helped with the transition into the Reception class this year”
