About Us

Little Lambs Nursery operates from a large detached family home located in the Sharples area of Bolton.

We are a private day nursery for children aged from 3 months to 5 years and we are open from 7:30am to 6pm Monday to Friday, 50 weeks of the year.

The nursery has been trading since 1990 (though it was previously known as Andrew Lane Nursery) and it currently holds an outstanding Ofsted rating (June 2022). During their inspection, Ofsted said that the children are in awe during their play which is exactly what we set out to achieve.

We pride ourselves in providing all children with a nurturing, caring environment in which they will play, learn and explore.

Our Philosophy

    All children feel safe and confident to engage with new experiences.
    Every child is happy and stimulated.
    Every child’s efforts are valued.
    Every child has the opportunity to develop knowledge, skills and understanding according to his or her abilities and regardless of their          race, culture and gender.
    Children learn to respect and look after each other.

Our Aims
