Welcome to Ribchester Nursery School,

a hidden gem in a former village school on quiet Stydd Lane in Ribchester. 

Nestled between farmland, fields and country lanes we enjoy

a very private rural setting where the children can experience the countryside first hand.


Established in 1986 we have an excellent reputation within the village and

surrounding areas for offering quality childcare and education

in a tranquil, safe and stimulating environment.


Our professional staff are very highly qualified and have many years of experience.

Quite a small number of children attend each day in family groupings so

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 proud to be awarded good in all areas.


Taster sessions at Ribchester Nursery School

We always recommend that your child attends taster sessions before starting nursery. This gives you the chance to discuss your child's routine and individual needs with the Key Person.

When your child joins us we arrange as many taster sessions as each parent feels necessary.

The first taster is usually around 45 minutes where parents are invited to stay with their child,

meet the team and get to know our nursery.

After that we arrange several more ranging from 1 – 3 hours to build up your child’s confidence with being in the nursery

and getting to know their peers and staff.

During each taster session, we try to get to know your child as much as possible so we can ensure we have out activities which we know your child will like to help them to feel settled.


We are a not-for-profit organisation.

Plesase telephone to arrange a visit on 07847 840 764

(located between Longridge and Whalley - easily accessed from the A59)
