A second nursery will be opening in Barnstaple this year in the former Christian Science building.

ST Michael’s Nursery will be expanding and opening its second pre-school and nursery centre in Sticklepath, Barnstaple this spring.

The original nursery will remain at Tawstock Court while the new building at the former Christian Science centre will provide a more central location.

The new nursery will be called St Michael’s Nursery Barnstaple and will include a private garden, outdoor play area and a forest school.

The expansion comes after a turbulent year for the nursery, which feared closure after St Michael’s School went into administration in 2011.
