Our history

An insight into the early days of The Pink Cottage…

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.

Our aim

It is our priority to maintain consistently high standards of quality childcare and to put the needs of children and their families at the heart of everything we do. Developing strong relationships with parents and carers is paramount to the success of our setting, and to your child’s holistic growth and development.

Your child’s happiness and enjoyment is one of our fundamental priorities. We provide a safe, secure, caring and fun environment to enable opportunities for growth and development through play. This is in accordance with the early years legislation that is the Early Years Foundation Stage.
