Elmscot Day Nursery Chester a nurturing experience

Welcome to Elmscot Day Nursery & Nursery School Chester

Elmscot Day Nursery and Nursery School Chester was acquired by the Elmscot Group in July 2018 and was formerly known as Little Friends Day Nursery and Learning Centre.

The Chester 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 early years setting 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.

The nursery has a private car park, for your convenience.

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.

Elmscot Day Nursery Chester was the very first setting in Cheshire West to receive the coveted Food for Life Award, meaning we serve babies and young children the best quality, freshly cooked food every day.

We have places available for those receiving 2-year-old childcare funding. To check your eligibility, visit the Cheshire West & Chester website.

Parent Portal

We have an amazing Parent Portal available to all families that enables you to login and see your child’s nursery account. From here, you can check which sessions your child is booked in to attend, see what payments have been received and check any outstanding fees. You can also download copies of individual invoices and receipts for payments, as well as view your entire account history should you have a query.

The Parent Portal can also be used to send messages to our Finance Team and to check details are correct. The messaging facility can be used to inform us of any changes to your personal details.

This facility is for information purposes only and cannot be used to make payments.

To access the Parent Portal, please contact our Finance Team on 0161 980 0003 (ext. 711) and we’ll be happy to set this up for you.
