COVID-19 NOTICE: In my twelve years as owner of New View Nursery I never thought we would be faced with the times we are having, New View Nursery is closed until further notice. All enquiries should be sent via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
New View Nursery was first established in September 1993. We are open during term time, we follow the term dates set by West Sussex County Council, we are closed for school holidays, half terms and five inset days per academic year.
Children may join New View Nursery from aged 30 months to 4 years+, there are a maximum of 22 places each session. Every three and four year old is entitled to fifteen hours of nursery education per week, we offer fifteen hours in either a morning or afternoon session. Each session has a high adult/child ratio and is run by a qualified team of five or six Early Years professional practitioners.
New View Nursery offers a full range of learning and development opportunities that meet the needs of children and their families. We believe that outdoor play supports all areas of learning and is an integral part of children’s development, children have access to the outdoors all year round, no matter what the weather! We understand that children learn everywhere; we support each child to become lifelong independent learners through play that is free flow, allows risk taking, experimentation, awe and wonder in a fun, colourful and creative environment.
We welcome all parents/carers who wish to look around with a view to their child joining us in the future. Please telephone to book a viewing appointment.

What is it like to attend this early years setting?
The provision is outstanding
Children thrive in the warm, welcoming and inclusive setting. Relationships between children and staff are exceptionally secure. Staff know each child's individual needs and interests and accommodate these at all times. Children explore freely indoors and outdoors and are encouraged to make independent choices about where their learning takes place. They benefit from a wide range of interesting and highly engaging activities and resources, which helps ensure that they are fully engaged and motivated to learn. Plans for children's ongoing learning are extremely focused and planned meticulously through targeted observations. Staff have exceptionally high expectations of all children, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). All children are making excellent progress across all areas of learning.
Children thoroughly enjoy learning and being challenged to complete tasks or take part in activities. Every child is constantly engrossed in an activity which is expertly supported by one of the many experienced members of staff. Children's behaviour is impeccable. The kindness and consideration they show towards each other is incredibly warming and genuine. Children have extremely secure friendships with each other and close attachments with all staff. Children are exceptionally happy and have an excellent understanding of the rules and boundaries that staff set.
What does the early years setting do well and what does it need to do better?
Starting nursery is a big step for children. It is also a big step for parents too! Leaving your child with someone that you do not know well is hard and so it is normal to feel anxious. Our aim is to work with you to make the settling in process as smooth as possible. The aim of our policy is therefore to settle your child in without any tears.
Once you have been offered a nursery place we invite you to come along and get to know us and what we do. Join us from 1:30 to 2:30 to stay and play with your child. We invite you to come along and get to know the team and the nursery environment.
In order for your child to settle into nursery, we need to work together. Settling-in is a process. Your child has to build a relationship with us and feel comfortable before they will be ready to leave you. Children need to feel that their parents are happy and relaxed about them playing and being at nursery. Try our “Taster Session” from 2:30 to 3:30, leave your child to play for one hour.
