Welcome to First Place Nurseries Website


We are currently recruiting. Please view our staff page to see our current open positions 



It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the First Place Nurseries website.


What are we all about at First Place?


A child’s ability to learn and thrive starts at birth which is why at First Place we value the early years as an important stage in itself, as well as a crucial step towards a successful start to formal schooling.


Our well equipped nurseries provide a stimulating, happy and nurturing environment where your child is encouraged to reach their full potential through learning and play. We focus on your child’s individual interests and needs to support their quest to become confident and independent learners, at their own pace.


It all starts with the gentlest and most personalised introduction to nursery for both you and your child, working with you to maintain your child’s routines and helping you achieve the flexibility you require in your life.


We want you to know more about how we go beyond national expectations to give you confidence in the knowledge that all aspects of the care, support and education required by Ofsted along with crucial health and safety issues are fully met.


Our carefully structured and well balanced curriculum developed by our senior management team combining many years of shared experience delivers a programme recognised by the Early Years Foundation Stage as being vital in achieving the best outcome for a child’s successful start at school.

Our website gives you an introduction to First Place Nurseries and contains information which you will find useful, either if you are looking for a nursery for your child, or if you are interested in a career in childcare.


Our Senior Management Team which has over twenty five years experience in providing high quality nursery education encourage children and staff to be considerate and caring towards each other and strive to maintain a happy and friendly atmosphere at each of our nurseries.


As First Place adds more locations to its group of nurseries, so does its programme benefit from the talent and fresh thinking of staff who join us and its ability to share best practice grows.


We do hope this introduction has provided you with an insight into what First Place Nurseries can offer both you and your child as you contemplate this first vital step in your child’s development. Nevertheless we are sure there are questions and aspect of our nurseries that you will indeed want to explore further. I would therefore like to extend a personal invitation for you to come and visit us as this really is the ultimate way of experiencing our unique approach and philosophy. You can contact any of our nurseries by telephone or email and we will be happy to arrange a convenient time for your visit.


We look forward to meeting with you very soon.
