A welcoming and enriching nursery in Countess of Chester Hospital

Handily located in the hospital grounds, our convenient, purpose-built, nursery will provide a nurturing environment for little ones from birth to 5 years old. Your little one will marvel at the array of activities designed by our highly motivated, dedicated team to inspire every stage and age.

A 'Bright Beginning' for Every Child

Designed by our Early Years specialists, your little one will get the best start to their schooling life through our enriching and wellbeing focused Bright Beginnings Curriculum.

Building on the foundations of the government's EYFS curriculum, it combines a wide range of activities to nurture and develop the skills your child needs to flourish and reach their full potential. This holistic yet personal approach supports each child's development and progress - whether that's moving rooms or preparing them for school.

Age-Appropriate Outdoors Fun

Your little one can access the large outdoor space from every room, so they can explore nature when they want, learning from our vegetable garden and allotment. Your preschooler can also enjoy a separate outside space specially designed to suit to their developmental stage.

All-Inclusive Food & Care

Nutritionally balanced meals are prepared using fresh ingredients by our onsite chef. We hold a 5* EHO rating for food safety and hygiene.

Necessities such as snacks, wipes, nappies, creams and formula are provided, so there is less to pack on those busy mornings.

Onsite Hospital Location

Conveniently set in the grounds of the Countess of Chester Hospital, it is an ideal nursery for hospital staff and local residents.
