Nursery and Pre-School Providers

Information for Nursery and Pre-School Providers

If you are looking for an activity to run at your facility that is a little different, highly education as well as being fun and entertaining, then Lab Tots is for you!

Lab Tots is already running 5* sessions at a number of nursery and preschool facilities, as well as running specialist sessions for other organisations such as Girl Guiding UK and The Scout Association.

Lab Tots has been featured in Teach Early Years and QA Nursery publications, promoting the benefits of STEM education and engagement in EYFS, so please look out for our articles! http://qanurserymagazine.co.uk/content/be-trail-blazer-and-join-stem-revolution-labtots

Lab Tots runs a really unique program of pre-school science sessions for children aged 3yrs and up, focussing on the importance of STEM subjects through fun, engaging and interactive play. We are a new business but are already enjoying great feedback, 5* reviews and 100% retention of all children term on term until they leave nursery for school, with 50% growth of new uptake each term.

Lab Tots has full public liability insurance, all activities are risk assessed and enhanced DBS certified. Copies of all documentation can be provided upon request.

We require a booking form to be completed for each event, which we ask all groups to complete to register their children. You can do it as a group or just include any children who have special requirements that Lab Tots should be made aware of.

For private nurseries we currently offer a variety of different options and packages to suit your needs, however we are flexible to your requirements so if you have any additional ideas or thoughts, or want to look at a combination of approaches, we are more than happy to schedule a meeting to discuss your bespoke requirements and see what we can do for your facility:

  • A pre-school / nursery funded option in which the pre-school / nursery facility pays Lab Tots directly to come in to run sessions for all the children at the desired location.
    • As standard, Lab Tots run 6 Sessions per term
    • 30 or 45 minute sessions are available (with 20mins either side for set up and clear away)
    • Sessions typically run every other week during term time
    • Prices will depend on your requirements, whether you are looking for one off sessions or more regular termly sessions, the number of children and distance travelled
  • A parent funded option
    • Lab Tots would come to the nursery/pre-school one afternoon from 3pm and set up a stall for Parents to interact with as they come to collect their children
    • Lab Tots would typically need a minimum of 6 children to run a session
    • Parents would register interest & hopefully sign up on the day
    • Parents would then liaise directly with and pay Lab Tots directly for each child per term for 6 sessions
    • Lab Tots would then run as many sessions as required dependant on the uptake at the nursery/school facility
    • As standard, there are 6 Lab Tots sessions a term, running every other week duringĀ  term time
    • The day of the week would depend on a suitably convenient time
  • Combination / Subsidised approach
    • This would be where the nursery / preschool would pay a proportion of the total cost of running the Lab Tots session(s), with the parents contributing the remainder of the fee
  • Customised Lab Tots Consultancy option
    • For nursery chains, we also look at delivering consultancy services to look at developing your very own in-house STEM program providing training of staff etc to fully meet your needs.
    • Lab Tots would work with your facility to help develop your own STEM curriculum and offer training and advice on science content and delivery

Lab Tots has full public liability insurance, all activities are risk assessed and enhanced DBS certified. Copies of all documentation can be provided upon request.

Lab Tots also run parties, one off events & undertake work with children’s centres, libraries etc and run school workshops for primary children.
