Safehands Nursery in Penrith caters for children aged from birth to five years old. We set in a tranquil residential area of the historic Cumbrian market town of Penrith. We are within walking distance of the town centre and local parks. We have a car park for ease of drop off and collection. We are open for 51 weeks of the year with the exception of bank holidays.

We are a purpose-built nursery which is divided into two large play rooms, all situated on the ground floor. Our Sweet Pea Room caters for children aged from birth up to two years old, our Garden Room caters for children aged two to five years old. Both playrooms offer an ideal environment to enhance your children’s development

We have a highly qualified and dedicated staff team, who are committed to professional development through in-house and external training. We are very lucky that our staff team have worked together for many years and have a significant number of years’ experience working with children in the early years age groups.

Each child is allocated a key person who will ensure your child is settled, stimulated and challenged whilst in the nursery environment; they are responsible for your child’s learning journey and will work closely alongside you to plan effective next steps to ensure your child is reaching his/her full potential.

We have outdoor gardens off both of our play rooms which children can access at their leisure. Children will enjoy a range of exciting opportunities and experiences including planting seeds and plants in our purpose-built flowerbeds so that they can learn how to care for the environment. We consider ourselves fortunate that our nursery is close to local parks and the library as we love nothing more than going on trips to explore using our imaginative, sensory and physical skills as well as learning about the world around us.

We have a green ethos within our nursery, encouraging children to recycle and grow fruit and vegetables which are used as part of our daily meals. We value parents’ input into our nursery and our nursery cook will work with you when planning our summer and winter menus.
