Welcome to Grasmere Nursery School & Children’s Centre

Joy Luxford - HeadteacherWelcome to Grasmere Nursery School!

We are a popular and happy Local Authority Maintained Nursery School in North Luton, and are privileged to serve our caring and diverse community.

We have six classes taking children from 3 months up to 5 years of age, and offer an amazing learning environment – both inside and out – including our own orchard! We have many pets including tortoises, guinea pigs and a Giant African Snail, and our children love caring for them each day.

The Nursery is graded as an Outstanding School by Ofsted, with the Baby and Toddler Unit also graded Ofsted Outstanding as an Early Years Setting (the most recent Inspections for both being in February 2019). 

Our team is highly trained, experienced and dedicated, with Qualified Teachers, Early Years Educators and Qualified Early Years support staff.

We are open for 47 weeks a year, with sessions from 8.00am to 6.00pm. From 2 years of age, we also offer sessions based around school hours for term time places only.

We are a Values School, and offer a wide, rich and exciting curriculum which includes signing for communication, feelings and phonics, forest school activities, mindfulness and yoga.

Grasmere is also a Resourced Nursery, which caters for children with severe and complex special educational needs and disabilities, and we are highly experienced in meeting their additional needs.

We hope that you find our website useful – whether you are interested in our Nursery School, or our Children’s Centre services.

Visits are always welcome, so ‘phone us today for more information. Sarah, Iysha or Carol will generally answer your call, and are always happy to help!

With warmest wishes

Joy Luxford
Head Teacher
