Thorney Island Nursery

We are an independent nursery based on Thorney Island.  We are a registered charitable organisation focused on providing affordable and quality childcare to the community.  The Nursery is managed by a full time Manager, Bursar and overseen by an executive committee. 


Thorney Island Nursery is located on the picturesque and unique Thorney Island, home to the Royal Artillery.  Thorney Island is part of the Chichester Harbour area of outstanding natural beauty and is also an area of special scientific interest.  We are surrounded by greenery and wildlife making it perfect for our nature walks and other outdoor activities.


Whether it is building an indoor den with the parachute, a visiting dentist, retelling a well known story or exploring the outside, children are guaranteed to learn in a fun and stimulating environment. 

Parents should be reassured that once security checks have been conducted access to the nursery is straightforward.  This idyllic setting makes our facility more secure than most.

"The bright and interesting nursery provides stimulating areas for the children to play and learn, both indoors and outside.  The play resources and equipment promote learning well." (May 13 Ofsted)
