Our Nursery runs from 08.45am-11.45am on Monday to Friday. The children are invited to stay and enjoy a school lunch at a cost of £10 per week. Dinners are optional, If your child stays for dinner their session will end at 12:15pm.
Working parents can now apply for an additional 15 hours Nursery provision (30 hours in total) and stay until 3 o'clock with the available funding. For parents who are not eligible for funding, sessional wrap around care is available until 3 o'clock at a cost of £10.
We have a varied snack throughout the week, sometimes linking with our topics, along with a drink of milk or water. Snack costs £10 each half term.
Our days consist of a variety of play based activities which include personal and social development; language, vocabulary and phonics development; fine and gross motor skill development; maths and literacy activites alongside independent and adult led activities within our indoor and outside learning environments.
Smile 4 Life
We are taking part in the Smile 4 Life programme to help reduce the high levels of tooth decay that some children have. We clean our teeth everyday and learn about oral hygiene, we encourage healthy eating and drinking, as well as regular tooth brushing and learn about visiting the dentist.
Each week the children in Nursery take home a reading bag to enjoy. These include stories to share as well as activities to do at home.
Healthy Families Cumbria Pledge
At Grasslot we are part of Healthy Cumbria Familes Pledge. We take part in daily physical activists as well as having a range of healthy snacks.

Parents as Partners
In the Nursery we understand the importance of parents being involved in their child’s learning. We have been working hard this year to develop this.
