    An insight into our early days

    The Pink Cottage Day Nursery is the culmination of our shared vision and aspiration to establish a unique, quality, early years setting that offers exceptional standards of childcare for children between the ages of three months to five years, within a nurturing, homely environment.
    It was always our ambition to pursue a career in childcare and, since qualifying, we each worked in several children’s day nurseries before establishing our successful childminding setting in Chichester known as The Pink Cottage.
    Our ultimate dream was to open our own day nursery and in the summer of 2008 we found the ideal property in Selsey, which we instantly knew would be the perfect home for our new early years setting, The Pink Cottage Day Nursery.
    Although we have expanded and developed our childcare business, we are dedicated to maintaining the homely ethos that sets us apart from other early years settings.

    • I couldn’t be happier with the service received at The Pink Cottage. The staff are very welcoming and take the time to get to know each child and their individual needs. The setting is extremely homely and there are a great variety of resources. I can go to work with the peace of mind that my child will have a fun filled, educational day, in a safe and secure environment. Thank you to all the staff and management for your continual care and hard work.

    • Our two boys have and are thriving in Pink Cottage’s nurturing and exciting environment. Our eldest child entered school ready and raring to go and this is definitely thanks to his time spent there.

    • A fantastic nursery setting that my son was very sad to leave this year as he had reached school age. Nothing was ever too much bother and my sons dairy allergy was catered for totally. Lovely staff and an amazing experience for all of the children lucky enough to have a place there. Would highly recommend and do frequently.

    • My daughter has attended The Pink Cottage since May & she loves attending the nursery and really loves the staff (she spends the weekend talking about them!) her confidence, language and physical capabilities have grown massively in this time.

    • I was very anxious looking for a nursery for my daughter but as soon as I walked into The Pink Cottage Day Nursery I felt very welcomed and at ease. Chloe has been attending for 3 years now and there has never been a day when I have felt uncomfortable or nervous about leaving her. All the staff are extremely kind, welcoming and helpful and I would highly recommend the nursery to anyone…
