Cranbrook Independent Nursery & Pre-School - Buttercup Barn

Oldlands Barn, Haywards Heath Rd, Balcombe, Haywards Heath RH17 6NL

Buttercup Barn is situated on the outskirts of the village of Balcombe in West Sussex. Its two converted barns compliment the countryside setting in which it stands; boasting picturesque views across working farmland.

The larger of the two barns provides a large, fully equipped learning environment for pre-schoolers, who are aged between 2 ¼ and 5 years. Whilst the smaller barn provides three separate, inter-connected learning environments for toddlers aged between 1 ¼ and 2 ¼ years, and a bright, open learning space for babies, who flourish in a nurturing, home from home environment.

Both barns open out onto outdoor learning environments, giving a courtyard feel and are equipped with a large sandpit, climbing apparatus and digging area. The recent acquisition of a wooded area, along with a gated pond area, will provide children with the opportunity to widen their experiences and knowledge of nature first hand.
