Promoting the Joy of Learning
St Nick’s Nursery was the first of FSN nurseries, operating since 2003 and is located in a new purpose built building next to FSN’s main office in Central St Leonards. The nursery offers up to 70 places for children aged 0-5 years for 48 weeks of the year.
The nursery has an allocated area for babies aged 0-2 years which is integrated within the larger open plan space, giving opportunities for all children to be part of one community and supporting children’s transitions within the setting.
The children have access to all areas of the nursery, including the large garden area which includes a mud kitchen, growing and wellbeing areas, and a bug hotel. Inside the nursery, children have access to a wide range of activities including messy play, creative arts, role play area, construction and literacy and numeracy areas which provide opportunities for children to develop and learn through play.
The nursery team are committed to parent partnership and share ideas and plans to build on children’s interests, supporting their development and helping them to achieve their goals. Parent/carer views are used to help the nursery adapt and develop
St Nick’s Nursery has close links with the local health and Children’s Centre team, who are on site, as well as support from specialist professionals to support children who may need some extra help and the nursery is committed to working with families to ensure the best outcomes for your child.
The nursery holds the Outstanding Children’s Food Trust Award for our commitment to supporting healthy eating for children and families. For children who stay with us after 3pm, St Nick’s Nursery can offer a hot, nutritionally balanced meal cooked daily.
0-2 Baby Project
St Nick’s Nursery is pleased to announce that our baby room practitioners are taking part in a project which focuses on quality interactions with our very youngest children. The project is in collaboration with East Sussex County Council and Christchurch Canterbury University.
The practitioners, along with the nursery manager, are involved in training and observing aspects of young children’s development using research to establish best practice that meets the needs and creates a stimulating environment where children begin the very important journey of learning.
We would like to thank our parents/carers for their support with this project.
Full of Beans Project
St Nick’s Nursery is committed to supporting healthy eating. The Full of Beans project provides an opportunity to develop creative ideas alongside an artist to use different visual media to promote healthy lunch boxes for children, families and staff. By introducing art which focuses specifically on food images into the nursery, children will gain the experience of visually recognising and naming food products that are good for them whilst also developing their creativity. The results of the project will be
displayed both in in the nursery and in the community.
Comments from Health Visitor "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."
