    I always think I couldn’t love this beautiful nursery anymore than I already do….and then every day I love it a little more!  Every child’s desire to learn in different ways is always encouraged by the truly amazing staff.  I have a nursery school within a 30 second walk of my house but choose to navigate half of Chichester because I know the passion for great early education oozes from this fantastic place!!!
