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 term time day care for children aged 0-5 years.

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


"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!"

I just want to thank everyone at FSN who have made the last two years so amazing. I have learnt so much and met so many inspiring people. The work you do with the community truly changes lives, as it changed mine. The courses you provide have led me into employment and given me the skills to create a life for myself.
I will continue to sing your praises to those that I meet and tell people about the amazing work that you do and hope that FSN thrives for many years to come. I know you'll touch many lives as you did mine.

- My Time Now young people's comments

I have been at FSN since 2010. When I first came I knew about it because the fellowship was founded on Christian principles 80 years ago. Volunteering has changed my life. It is not only the staff who are always there to help you when you are at your lowest and feel down, but it is also a place where you can come and meet people. Volunteering for FSN has changed my life.

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
