We operate two full day care nurseries for the children of NHS staff and public sector workers:
- Sussex House Nursery in Brighton
- Wendy House Nursery in Haywards Heath.
Our highly skilled staff support children to reach their full potential.
Our staff treat all children as individuals and know that they learn and develop at different rates and stages. Through aged related, but not age dependent, playrooms children enjoy a rich curriculum where their interests and development are well supported through planned activities.
We offer a wide range of learning experiences through sensory, creativity and social engagement, supported through the early years foundation stage areas of learning.
Children are encouraged to become independent learners with access to resources through inside and outside environments. They have the opportunity to learn about their community and beyond by joining in with offsite activities such as a trip to the library, church, local shops, theatre or park.

The nursery fees range from £38.50 (£19.25 half day session) to £55.50 (£27.75 half day session) dependent on the pay banding of the member of staff.

The nurseries are both rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted (Governing body for Care and Education). With the support of early years advisors from the Local Education Authority, we continue to reflect on current practice and future practice.
We have a number of nursery policies for parents and carers of our nursery children to read that explain how our nurseries operate including things such as giving medication, outings, safeguarding, food and drink, sleep and more.View all our nursery policies
