Elmscot Day Nursery & Nursery School (Chester) was recently acquired by the Elmscot Group (July 2018) and was formerly known as Little Friends Day Nursery and Learning Centre. The nursery is the former Grade II listed Egerton Street School, built in 1910. It is a beautiful old building with lots of space and high ceilings with a very large garden to facilitate outdoor learning.

Elmscot (Chester) is a stimulating learning centre conveniently located between Chester Railway Station (2 min walk away) and Chester city centre (about a 10 minute very pretty walk away along the canal) so it is very easily accessible by commuting parents. It also has a parent car park.

Elmscot (Chester) has a rich history of education and childcare and offers a nurturing environment with superb facilities with very experienced, trained staff and teachers.
