St. Nicks Nursery

Promoting the Joy of Learning

 

St Nick’s Nursery was the first of FSN nurseries, operating since 2003 and is located in a purpose built building next to FSN’s main office in Central St Leonards.

We offer flexible full day care for children aged 0-5 years and term time only places for children aged 2-5 years. Places can also be booked during the school holidays, subject to availability, for an additional cost.

We are eligible to receive government funding to enable children to access free education and care.
This is:

3- 5 year olds for 15 hours per week for 38 weeks per year and 30 hours for eligible children.

2 year olds for 15 hours per week subject to eligibility.


Babies aged 0-2 years have their own area, where staff provide a warm and caring environment for them. We work closely with parents, carefully considering each baby’s care and routine promoting a smooth transition between home and nursery.  They also have direct access to their own outdoor area so that they can fully enjoy the benefits of daily fresh air and outdoor play.

Our fully qualified practitioners create a warm and nurturing environment for children to learn and play. Our children are able to freely access our large outdoor area, with an outdoor classroom, where we plan a range of stimulating activities to promote their learning and understanding of the world around them.
We work closely with other professionals to ensure the good health and well-being of our children.         

St Nicks Nursery participates in the East Sussex Healthy Active Little Ones programme and the Early Communication project.

SuccessES


It was really nice to meet other families In our group, in the same situation as us, "I was terrified to start with but it was an extremely fun day"
"My little girl has really benefitted from being with other young people in similar situations. She knows she is not alone and it's ok to be sad and angry. She talks about Nanna now a lot more"
"Dragonflies has made an invaluable difference to my son, I think he was in a dark place and Dragonflies has let the light shine for him again

- Dragonflies parent/carer comments

I do feel that safeguarding and wellbeing of the children is fully prioritised and staff go to great lengths to support families and children. The Nursery demonstrates empathy and works hard to ensure fairness for families/children here. Really stands out as 'safe space' for children.

"I started to volunteer with FSN in the Health and Wellbeing Hub in July 2018. In September I started a Level 3 course at FSN through another of their projects and I am also looking into doing a degree in psychology next year. Once I complete the degree I hope to start a new career path and help others and work towards removing the barriers to mental health. The course started me on this new path and changed my life!"

"The Community Learning courses have been a valuable resource for our clients looking to improve their mental health and wellbeing, as well as providing insight to self-management/coping strategies to build resilience. Our clients have reported they have found them interesting, informative and easy to engage with due to the welcoming and supportive staff and informal setting."
