  • ‘First Snips’ the village’s very own hair salon (which is always fully booked!)

There are costumes for the children to help them get into character, a baby’s corner, changing facilities and self-service kitchen so the grown ups can help themselves to refreshments throughout the session.  First Steps Village Chichester is within walking distance of the town centre and there is plenty of parking available on both sites.

All of our nursery children enjoy access to First Steps Village as part of their package. The days during which they attend the village vary each month to ensure all children, no matter which day they attend nursery, get to visit at least once a term.

Both First Steps Village Chichester and Brinsbury are open to the public during the session times listed above with extra sessions sometimes added during the school holidays.  Each session lasts for an hour and a half and refreshments are included in the entry price.

£5 per child (with one accompanying adult)

Additional adults are charged £3
