Ofsted Report 2022 - 2023

Welcome to Lambkins Private Day Nursery & Pre-School Centre

Imagine a world where children are free to roam fields, collect eggs, feed lambs, dabble in ponds and clamber over logs and branches.

A world of good old fashioned fresh air, exercise and possibly quite a lot of mud!

Deciding to send your child to nursery can be a difficult decision to make, for others it isn’t a choice but dictated by financial pressures or career demands. Regardless of the reason, you can be assured that there are many positive benefits which will have a direct impact on your child’s development now and as they progress to school.

We are a rural nursery only 4 miles from Penrith. Nurturing children from 3 months to 5 years and beyond. We pride ourselves on caring for your child as though they were our own.

We have warm, supportive staff who work with you and your child at every stage of their development with a special emphasis on individual requirements, preferences and needs. In addition, we offer great facilities, high quality resources and a carefully planned learning environment. We ensure every day is an adventure, full of opportunities for your child to grow, develop and reach their full potential.

The Curiosity Approach

We are proud to be working as a team to gain The Curiosity Approach accreditation. We have always believed that children who have the freedom to explore natural objects and use their imagination, have much higher levels of well-being, independence and confidence. The ingredients needed to support them through life’s journey. The accreditation will give us the recognition for the staff’s continuous dedication in providing exciting environments and learning opportunities for the children they care for.
