SIGNS for a new nursery in north Colchester have been installed, hinting that its opening is just around the corner.

The Chesterwell Day Nursery School is set to occupy one of the commercial units currently under construction at Chesterwell Plaza.

Its parent company Seymour House hinted on its website that the new nursery, in Cordelia Drive, Mile End, will be opening next month.

Planning permission was granted for the nursery in February last year after an application was made to Colchester Council in 2021.

Its sister nursery in Brinkley Lane, Highwoods, was rated as outstanding following its latest Ofsted inspection.
