Bear and Bunny Nursery and Pre-school...
Is a family owned nursery, located on the outskirts of the rural village of Charlwood - yet close to Horley and Gatwick. Home for our pre-school is Crangal Cottage - a gorgeous old Victorian house which has seen a few additions. Home for our babies up until the age of three is our stunning 13th Century Farmhouse. A true slice of history - and very "Alice in Wonderland" helping to add to the magic of your chils' early years. At whichever age your child comes to us - it truly is a home from home nursery - beautiful enclosed large gardens and woodland surround both properties.
Our aim is to offer the highest possible standard of childcare, ensuring your child is happy and safe, whilst having fun and learning, - not that they will actually realise they are learning - just thinking they are having fun!
We offer a free-flow environment - a chance for your child to choose what they would like to do and when, without being confined to a set room. If they would like to get crafty there are fully stocked craft trolleys and shelves with all manor of goodies to help set their imagination free. When creating the next Monet or maybe more Picasso to bring home for you (we will endeavour to give you a "title" of the art work so there are no embarassing questions from Mummy or Daddy as to what the picture or sculpture is depicting?!!). Encouraging messy play within our nursery also helps maintain the family home!!
We believe that fresh air and outdoor activities are the best environments for growing minds and bodies. The door to the garden will remain open at all times - we will ensure your child is wrapped up warm, with waterproofs and wearing wellies so they can go and jump in muddy puddles! They will of course be fresh and clean by the time you come and pick them up!
