Set in the little village of Penny Bridge, on the outskirts of Ulverston, and previously known as Greenodd Pre-school, Penny Bridge Nursery is now a privately run, non-profit making nursery and Out of School club for children aged 2-11 years old.

Our purpose built building offers wrap around care for children.

We are open from 7.45am until 6pm all year round. We are regulated and registered by Ofsted.

We offer Breakfast club 7.45-8.45 (for PBA pupils only), Nursery 8.45-3.15, After School Club 3.15 -6pm (for PBA pupils only), and Holiday Club out of term time where all children are welcome.

We recieved 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." (Ofsted Report 2019)
