Based in the heart of Portchester, Big Discoveries Nursery is located in the Porchester Community Centre. We provide quality childcare for children aged 0-5. Here at Big Discoveries Nursery we have a child-focussed approach to learning, with easily accessible resources and free-flow to the garden.

We have been been open throughout COVID restrictions and are following Government Guidance on infection control. We have limited spaces at the moment, so don't leave it too late.
