To ensure the environment and activities are best suited to each child, LavelleAcademy offers three different age groups.

At Lavelle Academy, we have three different age groups:

Your child’s age can help to determine which group they would be most suitable for. However, it is important to note that age is not the only factor. Stages of development and levels of independence also play a vital role when selecting the most appropriate group for your child.

For new children, our Head of Education will discuss with the family which age group will be most suitable for their child. Children already attending Lavelle move into a higher age group when they require further challenges and a more developmentally appropriate environment. Transitioning to a new group, which typically happens at the end of a term, is a gradual process to ensure a smooth and positive move for the child. The family are always informed and brought into discussions with the educator and Head of Education.


Attending a playgroup helps children to develop confidence and build a strong foundation, which prepares them for life in the outside world.

At Lavelle Academy we offer playgroups for children and their parents/caregivers.


Our Playgroup sessions are led by a dedicated educator and are planned on the developmental needs and interests of specific age-groups (6-12 months, 12-18 months, and 18–24 months). Valuable information regarding childhood development, as well as an abundance of ideas to introduce at home are shared with families.

Each class is comprised of:

• Group time greeting

• Sensory explorations

• Garden discovery and physical development

• Treasure baskets

• Goodbye group time
