''All children thrive from the moment they arrive at this calm and unique setting"

Oftsed 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!

Nuturing Curious Minds

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 Nature Gate Philosophy

Lambkins is one of two Nature Gate Nurseries, which encourage all children to grow and thrive as part of our natural environment. This system developed over 20 years by Nursery founder, Rachel Forster, puts children’s health and wellbeing first with a freedom of outdoor opportunities, access to nature and natural objects, and fostering children’s imagination and creativity.


We believe in creating a home from home where children thrive and their imaginations are encouraged indoors and out.


Our meals are made with no refined sugar, reduced salt, and lots of love! Prepared on-site, we cater for all little tastebuds.
