A Warm Welcome

A warm welcome to Kingsdown Nursery School in the Birchwood/Doddington Park area of Lincoln. Children who attend Kingsdown experience a friendly, stimulating environment with Teachers and Early Years Practitioners who meet the needs of all our children, including those with special needs. 

For parents who know us well, or new parents looking for a nursery school for your child, I hope you will find our website useful. As a Maintained Nursery School we specialise in educating and caring for young children aged between 2 and 4 years old.

We are very lucky to be one of only five Local Authority maintained Nursery Schools in the county .  This privileged position means that we are a ‘real’ school, with a Headteacher, fully qualified teachers and Early Years Practitioners who are all specialists in Early Education.

As a Nursery School we can offer the children the best possible start through a stimulating, practical and exciting curriculum, rooted in excellent early years practice.  We believe that children learn best when they are motivated through a wide range of challenging and enjoyable activities.  We carefully build on what they know and can do then help them to achieve their next steps of learning.

We are very proud of our school and the standard of care and education we provide. We believe children’s individual well-being is paramount and we ensure that children feel safe, secure and happy so that they can reach their full learning potential.  We recognise that all children are different and learn in different ways with different interests.  From the first day children start with us they can expect an excellent education and they will thrive in our well planned learning environment.

Since September 2023 the Governors at Kingsdown Nursery School have decided to share a Headteacher with Wyndham Park Nursery School in Grantham, Gainsborough Nursery School and Boston Nursery School. I split my days between the four schools.  When I am not at Kingsdown, Diane Ingham (our Head of School) will be happy to help you with anything you need or will be able to get your contact information to me so that I can be in touch. I am very proud to be Executive Headteacher across the Nursery Schools and consider each day a privilege.  I hope that you enjoy looking at our website.  Please do get in touch if you have any questions or would like to visit our school where you will be warmly welcomed.
