A Warm Welcome

Welcome to The Prebendal Nursery! From the very first day, our warm and nurturing environment inspires confidence and a passion for learning.

Our Nursery has a unique and enviable location in the heart of historic Chichester. The earliest a child can attend our Nursery is from the term in which they turn three years old. Our qualified teachers ensure that individual interests and needs are catered for, and every child has the opportunity to develop at their own pace.

We encourage active imaginations and creative expression and we are also passionate about the benefits of outdoor education which include our status as a Beach School. The children love our outdoor classroom, and the abundant natural resources right on our doorstep including the Bishop's Gardens and our spacious Prebendal playing fields.

Our close links with Chichester Cathedral mean the children enjoy spending time in the Cathedral for workshops, concert performances, assemblies and many other events. Their own plays, Sports Day, Prize Giving and concerts add to their learning journey.

"Choosing the right nursery for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make at the beginning of their lives. Do come and visit us and experience for yourself the unique environment that encourages all our children to be the very best version of themselves." Head | Louise Salmond Smith
