About Us

“Our aim is to provide excellent day care in a
stimulating and safe rural environment”

We provide professional day-care provision for children in the local community within a rural farmyard setting, utilising a converted Sussex tithe barn and its surroundings. We do this in the following ways:

We take the children on beautiful woodland walks, as the nursery is set close to woods.

We keep a few farm animals such as chickens, goats, cows and sheep.

Breakfast, lunch and tea are prepared and cooked on site in the nursery kitchen. Where possible produce is fresh, organic and meat will be local and traceable.

The nursery is open 50 weeks of the year (closed for two weeks over Christmas and the New Year.) We offer early start times and late closing times.
