Set in the little village of Penny Bridge, on the outskirts of Ulverston, we were previously known as Greenodd Pre-school.

We received an OUTSTANDING from Ofsted in July 2019.

"Children thrive in this greatly nurturing environment where their emotional and physical well-being is at the heart of all practice. Staff are calm, patient and reassuring, firmly establishing positive and secure key-person relationships with children. The learning environment is wonderfully stimulating, particularly outdoors. Staff create vibrant and innovative areas rich in exciting and engaging resources, such as the mud kitchen, science lab and minibeast hut. Children are entirely absorbed in their play and show extremely high levels of motivation to learn and take part."
