Southern Cross Pre-school is based in Portslade. We provide quality childcare for children aged 2 - 5 years old. The nursery is staffed by qualified, experienced staff who work with families to settle children and ensure they learn and have lots of fun at our pre-school. Our setting provides a safe, secure environment for children to thrive. We welcome all families from Portslade, Hove, Brighton, Fishersgate, Southwick and surrounding areas. We provide the most reasonable cost of childcare in Portslade, enabling children to attend our setting to gain the skills they need to socialise and become ready to start school. Call to book an appointment to come and see for yourself.
