A little bit about us

We are located in the heart of Ravenstonedale, Cumbria, 7 miles from Tebay and 5 miles from Kirkby Stephen (roughly). Next door to Dinky Dales is the beautiful St Oswald's Church. We work closely with the church to organise fun days for the children including services, Christmas experiences and Easter fun Days.

We love to explore the village; close by we have a park, woodland area and a sports field. We take every opportunity to involve the children in all aspects of the community. 

Dinky Dales Nursery is Ofsted registered for early years provision from ages 0-5 years offering, daily care from Monday-Friday 8.00am-5.30pm. Dinky Dales is a fun and happy environment where children learn to be themselves and explore their own interests. Our team are very passionate about caring for children and supporting them to reach their full potential.
