    It doesn't.

    Its 'Nursery" is the cloud of dust & gas that formed it. Eventually through gravity the dust & gas falls into the star and becomes part of it.

    Yes, a star can be born. Like the previous answer said, the gases and everything around will become part of the new star. But first of all you have to have a mass of gravity to attract there particals. The "Birth of a Star" is kind of a joke. If you wanted a date I guess you would have a range between when the star began forming and when the first trace of nuclear activity was detected. There is a universal constant that controls the nuclear reaction starting point, this constant is gravity. Once a HUGE planet has enough mass its gravity is actualy squishing its self. The preasure of this attraction becomes so great that the Hydrogen atoms begin a fussion process similar to our nuclear plants producing a ton of heat and light. Once all the fuel in the star is burnt it "dies".

    It has no nursery, a star needs no attention after it is born, it regulates itself and will live, in most cases for more than ten billion years.
