Great Orton Primary School Nursery

Great Orton Nursery is registered for 12 children at a time and takes children from 2 years old.  Although we can be found attached to Great Orton School and have use of the grounds, we are a separate charitable registration and feed other local schools. We have a friendly family grouping approach to the EYFS with an established garden. The 2013 Ofsted rating was 'Good'. 

Our Nursery is situated in the quiet village of Great Orton just five miles west of Carlisle city centre. Come and have a trial session and join our rich learning environment:

  • Provide high quality care and education for children aged 2 to 5 years;
  • Ensure children are valued as individuals in a happy, friendly and caring environment;
  • Work in partnership with parents to help children to learn and develop;

Local Offer

Local Offer Description

We offer a wide range of excellent resources and give children ample opportunities to investigate and discover new things for themselves and also ensure that the child's interests are met through well planned activities.

We want the children in our care to be happy, safe, confident individuals. We have a caring family atmosphere where each child can meet their own potential.

The children develop good literacy and numeracy skills through a play-based approach giving them the advantage of a readiness to learn. We work closely with the reception class teacher, which assists the  transition process as children progress into reception class.
