Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community


A very warm welcome to our Nursery.

Here at Oasis Academy Limeside, we aim to give every child the best start in their education.

Our Early Years team work closely with parents to ensure all children learn vital skills and concepts in a friendly, safe and stimulating environment, rated as outstanding by Ofsted. We place a high emphasis on developing social, emotional and communication skills in a language rich setting where children gain independence through a mixture of whole group, targeted small group and free-flow, self-directed activities, both inside and outside.

2 Year Old Unit - Little Wizards

We provide care and education for 20 children during either a morning or afternoon session, following their second birthday. 

3-4 Year Old Nursery

We have places available in our warm, welcoming and exciting Nursery Class. We welcome all children the term after their 3rd birthday (i.e. September, January and after Easter).

We have morning and afternoon places available (8.50 -11.50am and 12.10 - 3.10pm) 

We have a before & after school club for those parents who require extra care for their child (8.00am start and a 5:30pm finish).

We plan activities to help your child’s learning journey through the Early Years Foundation Stage, towards all their early learning goals. We have a bright and stimulating learning environment, where your child can learn thorough their play, both indoors and outdoors. In school we also provide support for children and families with interventions such as speech and language and baby moves.


Our Early Years Leader oversees our Little Wizards, Nursery and Reception classes. We provide an excellent Early Years education with highly qualified teachers (NNEB, HNC) and very experienced staff. The Nursery team is made up of a teacher and teaching assistant, whilst the Little Wizards (2-year-old nursery) has a team of 3 staff. This may be increased depending on the needs of the cohort.
