    First Place Nurseries was founded in 2005 by Managing Director, Jan Harris. Sue Littler is Operations Director and also a member of the founding team of First Place Nurseries.

    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 and high – calibre devoted team of nursery managers, teachers and practitioners 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, unique talents and abilities 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.
