At Great Walstead, West Sussex, we offer an exceptional Pre-School environment where children from 2.5 years of age have space to explore and learn through play with our unique teaching & learning approach.
Happy children learn best by being active explorers both inside and outside.
Our light and spacious classrooms are a treasure trove of fun equipment and toys designed to enrich the learning experience and support your child's 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 make full use of our purpose built outdoor learning area, Forest School and the 100 acres of woodland 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. All children have opportunities to take part in outdoor learning sessions and have the most amazing adventures in the wonderful woodland and in our ‘Secret Garden’.
In addition to having our own dedicated and secure play areas, children have access to the school's excellent facilities which include the Music School and Performing Arts Centre.
