Footsteps Day Nursery (Portslade)

Day nursery

We are situated on the Old Shoreham Road. We have bright, spacious classrooms with a wide range of resources. Our children enjoy a range of activities including soft play, an indoor movement area and the brilliant mud kitchen. We have an enclosed, fully equipped outdoor area.
We enjoy a varied curriculum, with outings in the local community and a wide range of visitors to the setting.

We offer an ad hoc service, alongside the usual morning, afternoon and full day sessions There is a £25 fee to register and a deposit for any ad hoc sessions that are booked. Bookings can be taken up to one month in advance via email. Sessions can be cancelled without any charge as long as long as 24 hours notice is given. As it is ad hoc, a space can never be guaranteed, but a waiting list is in operation and parents can use one of our other sites if they have spaces. We also offer short term placements and emergency childcare as long as we have the space. These sessions need to be paid for upfront.

We have received 5 out of 5 stars for our hygiene inspection and hot lunches are delivered from our chef at the Hove site. Other awards include the Brighton & Hove Equalities Quality Mark, Tailored for 2's, Healthy Early Years & Modeshift bronze, silver & gold star in sustainable travel. We were recently awarded with the title 'Early Year School of the region 'at the Modeshift regional awards. We then won the title 'Early Years national school of the year' award in the national Modeshift awards in London. We are a truly flexible setting, offering flexi-hours, emergency, one off or an occasional user register.

We have recently completed an extension to the building and the pre school children have a new classroom wth free flow access into the garden. This project was funded in part by BHCC.

We take the 2-year funding, 3 & 4 year funding and the 30 hours. See for more details

We have recently been awarded the 'Early Years Establishment of the Year' award at the Modeshift awards in London.
