Lancing College has announced plans to open Little Lancing, a new Day Nursery and Forest School on the site of the former Sussex Pad on the edge of the Lancing College estate, with easy access from the A27. Little Lancing is due to open in Autumn 2019 and will welcome children from local and commuting families.
The nursery will offer day care hours ranging from 7am to 7pm for children aged 2 months to 5 years. It will be open 5 days a week, all year round (except for Bank holidays) with morning, afternoon and all day sessions, subject to availability.
Little Lancing will operate as a standalone setting but will share the same ethos and approach as the College’s Senior School and the College’s two local prep schools in Worthing and Hove, which will both continue to run their current term-time only provision for pre-school age children.
The nursery will be run by a qualified Nursery Manager and co-managed by Tops Day Nurseries, a national award-winning early years provider with 27 Good or Outstanding nurseries across the South. They are pioneers and leaders of quality in the early years sector with the Managing Director, Cheryl Hadland, named as the “Most Influential Person in Childcare 2018” by Nursery Management Today.
Commenting on the announcement, Head Master Dominic Oliver said: ‘We are tremendously excited about this new venture. Extending our early years provision with a year-round day nursery is an obvious development for Lancing College which is recognised for its focus on nurturing the individual and inspiring young minds. Our convenient location and parent-friendly opening hours will, we hope, attract families who live and work in our local area.’
