A COLLEGE is planning to open a new nursery on the site of an old hotel.

Lancing College has announced plans to open Little Lancing, a day nursery and forest school on the site of the former Sussex Pad Hotel, on the edge of the Lancing College estate.

The college’s headteacher Dominic Oliver said: “We are tremendously excited about this new venture.

“Extending our early years provision with a year-round day nursery is an obvious development for Lancing College which is recognised for its focus on nurturing the individual and inspiring young minds.”

Little Lancing is due to open in the autumn and it will offer day care hours ranging from 7am to 7pm for children aged two months to five years.

It will be open five days a week, all year round with morning, afternoon and all day sessions.
