Hello all,
I do apologise if this has been discussed recently, but we are a family moving to Lewes at the end of August and just wondering if anyone has nursery recommendations? We will be moving near Priory Street-the Early Years is nearby but it seems abit too expensive for us-anyone had any positive experiences they can tell me about? I have two 3 year olds.
Thank you!

Clock Tower Nursery at the Sussex Downs College on Mountfield Road is excellent. Really first class care. It is used widely by the college staff but also has some public spaces.

I think there are only two nurseries in town which have year-round childcare: Early Years and Jigsaw up near the YMCA. We have used Jigsaw and it's fine. Most if not all the other nurseries are term-time only and our favourite is the lovely Southover Nursery which is opposite Early Years. My 3 year old practically runs to get there, he enjoys it so much.

What about the one on Morris Rd?

Jigsaw is good with small classes and lots of outdoor space, but they do charge for bank holidays

The Cliff Child Care Nursery is very good! Our little loves it and they seem to really care for her. Their always helpful and good communication.
Highly recommended.

My daughter has just left Lewes Old Grammar School nursery... it's from 3 years to reception - term time only - 9-4 mon to fri - and based in the Wallands.
I can't rate it highly enough. There are 3 teachers there - always the same people (never any temps!) - incredibly professional - they really care about their work... they are always calm, attentive and great at communicating back to you at the end of the day.. my daughter flourished there and i always felt she was safe and well cared for.
You aren't under any pressure to send your child into their reception... less than half this year stayed on at the grammar school - most like mine have gone to state schools.

Thanks so much everyone for your tips and recommendations! It's really helpful to hear the opinions of lots of different places. We are only looking for term time care anyway so have more choice, unfortunately most of the nurseries finished this week so haven't had a chance to see if they have spaces, but we don't move til end of August so will just hope there are some spaces then.
Thanks again, really looking forward to moving!

Our little one will be going in to Early Years in December. It is expensive, but its all inclusive. others charge for food, or nappies etc. We looked at Early Years because its the closest and also looked at Cliffe Nursery. We both thought that EY looked much more professionally run. We ruled out the Clock Tower because we wanted coverage outside of term-time.
