Pre-School Centre is the perfect choice.
The staff are friendly, caring and professional. They are also very supportive and take time to talk to you about your child, their development and how they are.
You can leave your little ones with ultimate confidence. Our son is happy and settled and loves
his nursery days. His experiences at the centre reflect positively on his development.
I cannot recommend this centre highly enough – it and the staff are fabulous.


Have sent all three children here. Very caring staff. My older children still speak fondly of their time there and love going back to visit their Key Workers. Lovely activities and nice use of wider university grounds to take children on walks.

My little boy has just started at the University of Cumbria Pre-School Centre this month and already we both love it. The staff have been amazing. The communication of what he has done through the day, changes, food he’s eaten, naps taken, and activities. The Facebook page replies quickly to any queries/questions
and the staff are so easily contacted via email, not just by phone. Plenty of settling in sessions were offered to allow a smooth transition and my little boy already loves his key worker.


The best nursery in Lancaster, my son is very happy here and the staff is amazing, friendly and helpful with any questions or concerns.
We are very happy with the process my son is making at the nursery.


Fabulous preschool and amazing staff! Great facilities and love the outdoor forest school. My little boy has flourished here. My one year old is starting in the nursery from September and I know he’s in the best hands! Have recommended to friends and would to anyone!


The University of Cumbria Pre-School Centre have been caring for my two boys ever since 2016. Both joined part time when they were just 1 year old when my maternity leave finished for each. Each kiddy started in the baby room, progressing up to 2-3 room until finally 3-4 room. In every room setting,
in every way, all the wonderful staff have all cared for and nurtured my baby boys with a smile. Which I’m sure is challenging but they excel at it. That’s six years we have been working with the Pre-School Centre and now, as the youngest is just about to start primary school, I’m honestly so sad to be not needing their service anymore and on his last day, there will be a lump in my throat! I couldn’t have wished for a better early years setting and you will not find better in Lancaster.


This is the most fantastic, well organised, well run and friendly nursery I’ve ever come across and I am delighted that my daughter will be starting soon. All the staff are extremely helpful and approachable and have always been willing to discuss any concerns in a kind, caring manner. Our son has thrived
under their care and had such a high quality and happy early years experience. Thank you!

Choosing a nursery for your child is such a big decision. The Pre-School Centre University of Cumbria ticked all the boxes and more. They have such a dedicated and committed staff and management and the care and support they give your child is exceptional. My little boy went from 7 months old and how
we watched him grow all thanks to the wonderful staff. What a fantastic nursery in every way.


My son has been at this Pre-School since he was 12 months old. He is now in his last 2 weeks before his big step to primary school. In each setting all the staff have been amazing. They generally care for your children and want to be a key part of their development. We will really miss going to the University of Cumbria Pre-School Centre.
