Every day is an adventure

Our Private Nursery & Pre-Prep School in Lindfield, West Sussex

Happy children learn best by being active explorers both inside and outside the classroom. At Great Walstead, West Sussex, we offer an exceptional Private Nursery & Pre-Prep environment where children have space to explore and learn through play with our unique teaching & learning approach.

Indoors our light and spacious classrooms are treasure troves of fun equipment and toys designed to stimulate and support your child's learning and development.  We provide resources and activities which they find stimulating and challenging, and where enjoyment and fun are linked to discovery and learning.

We are passionate about outdoor play and we make full use of our purpose built outdoor learning area, Forest School and extensive grounds in order to provide a variety of learning opportunities. Here, children can fill their lungs with fresh air whilst they build dens, play in the mud kitchen, explore the huge covered sandpit or try their hand at gardening.  The children love listening to stories in the tree house, around the campfire or in the teepee.  All children also take part in Forest School sessions and have the most amazing adventures in the woodland and on our onsite farm.

In addition to having our own dedicated and secure play areas, children have access to the school's wonderful facilities including the Music School, Performing Arts Centre and, in Reception, the Swimming Pool. What more could you want from a Private Nursery & Pre-Prep School in West Sussex!
