Welcome To The Co-operative Childcare

About our nursery

At The Co-operative Childcare nurseries, we never underestimate how difficult a decision it is to leave your child in the care of others and our aim is to ensure that you have all the information you need to make this very important decision.

The Co-operative Childcare Chichester nursery is a stimulating, safe and secure environment for your child and we pride ourselves on our welcoming atmosphere.


What our parents say

Both our children attend the nursery, we would like to thank you personally for the care that they have been given and your willingness to listen and act on feedback to ensure we have felt confident that our children were safe and happy.

We have been very happy with the level of care that Keira has received with you. Her development has been a total joy for us. All the staff at the nursery are kind courteous and loving. Thank you for everything you have done.

Really enjoyed being at the nursery and I will recommend the nursery to all my friends and colleagues.

I love this nursery as does my son who can't wait to come here and never wants to leave. The staff are all fantastic, smiley and friendly who engage my son in activities the minute he gets through the door. The food is fantastic, my fussy son eats it all.

Lovely, friendly nursery, my child is very happy there and I feel reassured that he is well cared for.

My husband and I are so happy with the care and support our son receives at nursery. The staff are always happy to see him and they are great at informing us of what he has been up to and the things he is working on. We really like the extra little things such as the chickens, growing vegetables in the garden and the lovely menus. Thank you!

Our daughter is very happy there and enjoys going. The staff are very good and they do a lot of learning and creative activities with the children. Also the food is very good, cooked on site and offering a great variety.

We have been delighted at the care our daughter has received at Co-op nursery. She thoroughly enjoys her time there and has an excellent relationship with the staff there. I am very impressed with the set up and services offered. Thank you.

What we do


There are many activities and play that takes place at the nursery and supports the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Framework.

Activities are planned for all age groups to ensure a flexible and balanced curriculum with a combination of busy and quiet activities, indoor and outdoor play. Also in our day nursery, the children are also actively encouraged to make their own choices and initiate their own play.

Our People

Our Chichester nursery team are friendly, approachable and have attended numerous training courses to enhance their knowledge, enabling them to provide the best care and enjoyable learning experiences for our children. All colleagues are qualified or working towards their qualifications and together they have over 90 years of experience in childcare. Our Nursery Manager Sharon has worked in childcare for over 24 years and there is a dedicated, loyal team of 20 colleagues who help our children to have the best start in life in a warm and friendly nursery setting.

Outdoor Facilities

The nursery Chichester has a lovely outdoor garden area that all our children have access to from their own individual rooms at any time. There is one area for the older children and a separate area for the younger children and babies. We aim to provide plenty of opportunities for physical play with a large range of outdoor toys and activities available for our children to access at all times. We are also developing our growing area where we will be planting, picking, cooking and eating a range of fruits and vegetables.

Parents as Partners

The parents have an information board located in the reception area which has a variety of useful information. Our baby and toddler rooms have a feedback sheet which includes the children’s daily information of how they have been, including sleep, food, nappies and anything that they have enjoyed during the day. The 3-5 year olds carers give verbal feedback to the parent on a daily basis. Regular newsletters are sent to parents from our nursery Chichester to keep them updated on up and coming events and we encourage parent participation in many of them. Parents evening are offered at regular intervals throughout the year where the child’s key person discusses the child’s development with their parents and there is also an annual survey for parents to give structured feedback on all areas of the nursery.
