The Chase Nursery Kirby

The Chase Kirby is located on the school premises of Kirby Academy, Halstead Road, Kirby Cross.

Although the Nursery is situated safely in the Kirby Primary School premises, the Nursery is privately owned by The Chase Nurseries and we pride ourselves on OUTSTANDING provision. 

We benefit from being situated on the school grounds as we have access to fantastic outdoor facilities and over look the horses. 

The Nursery provide care and learning for 30 children at any one time with a dedicated  strong team.

We aim to ensure all staff are paediatric first aid trained and in addition we have defibrillators at all sites! Your child's safety is our top priority.
