“ Every child deserves the best possible start in life, with support to fulfil their potential ”
We are 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 our pre-schoolers, who are aged between 2 ¼ and 5 years. Whilst the smaller barn provides three separate, inter-connected learning environments for our toddlers aged between 1 ¼ and 2 ¼ years, and a bright, open learning space for our babies, who flourish in a nurturing, home from home environment.
Both barns open out onto our outdoor learning environments, giving a courtyard feel and are equipped with a large sandpit, climbing apparatus and digging area.
I started working at Buttercup Barn in April 2014 as a Nursery Assistant. In August 2015, I completed my Level 3 whilst working in the baby room. I then took on the role of Team Leader before becoming Deputy Manager in February 2017. I currently oversee both the baby and toddler rooms and especially enjoy taking the children outdoors to explore the garden.
We know that Cranbrook is only as good as the relationship between our staff and our customers (the big ones and the little ones!) and we plan to continue listening and responding to parents’ needs, quickly and effectively.
