About Us

Lambourn CofE Nursery is a setting for children aged from 2 years until their reception year at school. Registered with Ofsted under the Lambourn CofE Primary School registration the nursery is regularly inspected to ensure high standards of care and education are provided for all children.
At Lambourn Nursery we focus on providing wonderful care in a safe, warm and caring environment. Our aim is to ensure that you feel confident that your child is happy, having fun and learning whilst spending time with us.
All children are assigned a keyworker who has responsibility for the overall care of your child. Their keyworker will create a learning journey through our ‘Tapestry’ programme for your child that tracks their progress and development alongside the key milestones provided for by the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).
