Welcome to Chichester Nursery School and Up to 3s’ Nursery which offers high quality nursery education for children from 6 months to 5 years. We are passionate about putting children at the very heart of the learning experience, allowing them to follow their interests, focus and revisit experiences that interest and excite them, and to see themselves as successful learners from the very beginning of their education. Our well-resourced, free-flow environment supports the discovery of new interests and skills and, all the time, our qualified teachers and experienced staff are on hand to support, extend and challenge children’s learning.

We would really like you to come and see all this for yourself and look forward very much to showing you our school. In the meantime, click on the options at the top of the page to find out more about us.
