Southern Cross Pre-school is based in Portslade. We have been providing quality childcare for children aged 2 - 5 years old for over 40 years. The nursery is staffed by qualified, experienced staff who work with families to settle children so they are happy and secure, so they learn and have lots of fun at our pre-school. We provided a safe, secure environment for children to thrive. We welcome all families from Portslade, Hove, Brighton, Fishersgate, Southwick and surrounding areas. Southern Cross Pre-school is a non-profit charity. This means we can keep charges low. We also except funded children. We ensure all children attending our setting gain the skills they need to socialise, share, become more independent and be ready to start school. Call to book an appointment to come and see for yourself.
