PLAY. EXPLORE. LEARN.

Welcome to the Fir Cones

Fir Cones Day Nursery is an all year round nursery and from September 2022 will be expanding to take children from 0-4 years of age for 51 weeks of the year. We are located on the outskirts of Chester city centre and set on an attractive site in a purpose built nursery building. Although affiliated to the Firs School, an independent primary school, Fir Cones is a stand alone day nursery, drawing upon more than 75 years of outstanding educational experience. Developing a love of learning, is very much at the heart of Fir Cones, along with a celebration of the amazing uniqueness of each and every child who attends.

Our aim is to provide a secure, stimulating, and caring environment where childhood is celebrated and the partnership between child, parent, and staff can flourish.
