Where does my child's journey start?

The Nest is a small family-owned and managed private day nursery group exclusive to Brighton and Hove. We are dedicated to creating a nurturing, stimulating, and welcoming environment for all children. We incorporate a variety of educational theories, while always keeping the child’s best interest in mind and allowing for hands-on, experiential learning. Children at The Nest are happy and settled and our environment is beautiful and carefully prepared. We cater for children aged 6 weeks to 5 years in two nursery settings in Brighton and one in Hove. Many children join us in Wrens Nest as babies and stay until they go to school.

Day Care

A passionate, empathic and motivated team

Nurturing Education

Our incredible team is an extended family and is at the heart of everything we do. They're the ones who'll help your child get settled, be happy, and grow in confidence. That is why we are passionate about providing our team with a positive work environment, excellent training packages, well-being support, and other benefits to ensure that they are always providing every child with professional love and the best possible education and care. Through our nurturing carers, we guide each child to explore the world around them as well as develop close relationships.


Clutter Free environments

Time and Space to Develop at a natural pace

We value the importance of creating an environment where children feel safe, happy, and valued in which to thrive. Just like many adults they need a clutter-free and beautiful environment to cherish and flourish. At The Nest, you will find well organised rooms that are clean and beautiful. You will find children who are engaged and may not even notice you as you watch them exploring the carefully selected resources and activities.
