Little Lancing comprises three rooms:
Explorers for our youngest children, 2 months to approximately 2 years;
Investigators for active 2 to 3 year olds and
Pre-School for those in their last year of Early Years education at nursery level.
The transition from Explorers to Investigators is flexible - children who are ready to move up before they turn 2 will do so after discussion and agreement with parents. They will be looked after using the same staff to child ratio as in Explorers until they turn 2. We arrange for the children to spend some time visiting Investigators and getting to know the staff and their new Key Person before they make the move.
From Investigators, the children move up to spend their last year with us in Pre-School where they continue their learning journey towards the time when they leave us to join a reception class in full-time primary education.
Children may join Little Lancing at any stage in any of our three Rooms, subject to space being available. You will find out more about each Room in the sections below.
