Monday the 19th - - Lonsdale Nursery
  • Welcome to Lonsdale Nursery



Lonsdale Nursery first opened in 1987. It is a private day nursery and out of school club operating over 2 sites located in the centre of Hartlepool. The large buildings are designed solely for nursery  and out of school use and is within 5 minutes of Hartlepool town Centre. We cater for 111 children from birth up to 11 years. There is parking facilities outside the nursery for dropping off and collecting your child/children. The nursery is registered with the governing body of OFSTED and our certificate of registration is displayed within the entrance.

Copies of our policies and procedures are also available. Please feel free to ask any questions at any time. We want your child to feel welcome and at home. 


Our aim and objective at Lonsdale Nursery is: 


           1. To provide professional, quality, affordable childcare. 


           2. To provide a caring, secure and stimulating environment. 


           3. To help children develop lively, enquiring minds and independence.


           4. To encourage children to have a balanced view of the world and an appreciation of  the rich            diversity of our multi-cultural society. To encourage them to explore    acknowledge and value differences between themselves and others. 



We have excellent indoor facilities, including IT equipment and a secure outdoor play garden (fitted with artificial grass), which is used all year round. The nursery has 7 aged ranged playrooms and two outdoor areas. All rooms are well equipped to suit the age and development of the children, and we have computers and printers for our pre-school children.

We provide a professional service in very safe and happy surroundings, preparing children for entry into Primary School.  We take in children of all ages – a great asset to parents having two of more children, who wish to work.


A child’s greatest power of learning is from 0-5 years of age.  These years are the most formative of a child’s life.  We use a unique blend of qualified Teachers and Nursery Nurses to care for and stimulate your child.  By the time your child is old enough to go to Primary School, he/she will have been taught first stage reading and writing and Music and Movement, in a homely, friendly Day Nursery with a solid traditional and educational element to each day.



The nursery has implemented the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) since September 2008, this allows the children the opportunity to actively learn, to use personal initiative and to problem solve.  The EYFS focuses on children’s strengths, and thus promotes children’s confidence in an environment, which is based on support and encouragement rather than child management.
