Welcome to Ribchester Nursery School

( just off the A59 between Longridge and Whalley situated in the beautiful village of Ribchester)












Dear Parent,


At Ribchester Nursery School we have a highly experienced staff who provide commitment and consistency for both our parents and our children.

Our's is a very rural setting with quite a small number of children attending at each session

in family groupings.  

Ratios of staff to children are very high.

The nursery is a calm, bright and nurturing place where each child is valued

as a unique and special person. 

At our last Ofsted inspection Ribchester Nursery School was awarded good in all areas.
