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.

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."
