Coppingham Cottage, Horley

Coppingham Cottage is our newest Cranbrook Nursery – a fun learning hub with friendly qualified staff and where babies, toddlers and children come to grow, flourish and make new friends in a positive early years’ experience. It’s a wonderful start to learning, as they embark on their journey to getting school ready.
We have just put the finishing touches on our baby suite and welcomed our first new babies. This is exciting for us. What was once a school holiday club, we have transformed into a beautiful and nurturing learning nest for babies.
Inside, our homely cottage and as the children grow, we provide a wide range of learning resources. Arts and crafts, cooking, book corner, home corner, science and games to choose from. Endless opportunities for children to be inspired and gain a lifelong love of learning.
Outside, we have a huge garden with swings, monkey bars, a pirate ship, sand play and plenty of room for lots of other games. Our outdoors provides shady areas to relax and quietly learn as well as physical challenges.
