Chelsea Open Air Nursery School and Children's Centre provides early childhood provision with free play and structured activities. The providers view risk and challenge as a strong ethic for children's learning and play, and this is reflected how the provision is run.
Chelsea Nursery encourages children to play outside and make the most of the outdoor space, which contains various play structures, flowerbeds, tress, a hut and a sand filled pirate ship. There is lots of choice and space for children to play, both indoors and outdoors.
The childcare has a diverse range of children from various backgrounds. At present, the service is reasonably accessible but the building dates from 1587 and so access to upper floors is difficult for the physically disabled, but there are new architects plans to improve this. In 2007, OFSTED described the nursery 'exciting and creative and captures children's imagination and sense of fun'.
