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


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.

- FSN Volunteer

"Volunteering at the Health and Wellbeing drop ins I have supported attendees with engaging into activities, not only at FSN but in the local community. It’s great to have access to all the activities and information not only for our service users but also for myself. I really enjoy supporting the community and being part of the hub team!
“I have come along and attended various courses at FSN but also attended the computer and Health and Wellbeing drop ins. Coming here as made me in such a better place, everyone is so supportive! I feel so much more confident, I have found myself again. I love it here!"

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.

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
