Our nursery is based at Chichester College and it is currently our largest setting . In addition to a fantastic, purpose built space, we have regular access to the college playing fields as well as having our own dedicated nursery gardens.

We have an experienced team at Chichester, headed up by Nursery Manager Emma Merriott. Each child has a Key Person who works in partnership with their parent or carer to ensure their individual needs are being met at all times. We are very proud to have received ‘OUTSTANDING’ in every category at our last three Ofsted inspections (most recently 2020).

We have three rooms, split into our 3 Steps, providing care for babies from birth to children ready for school. These dedicated rooms, in addition to our nursery gardens, ensure children are safe, comfortable and stimulated at all times. Each room has a quiet area as well as space for messy play and we have free flow access to the outside. Our activities, aided by a wide range of learning resources, include singing and story time, arts and crafts, games, cooking, imaginative role play, construction, trips around the campus, Forest School and much more.

Our nursery is set up to provide separate areas for role play, outdoor learning, messy play, quiet time and a reflection area. Our positive behaviour policy is based on a book called ‘The Colour monster’ by Anna Llenas which helps the children understand and identify their own emotions by associating them with a colour.

We encourage 'messy' play and have lots of fun. Each room is set up to provide age appropriate, stimulating activities with our wonderful resources.

As well as having lots of fun and making lots of mess we are always learning. No one day will be the same at nursery.
