Natural Nurture is a nursery school for children aged 2 to 5 years. Based in the heart of a 33 acre, family farm in West Sussex, we offer a new and innovative approach to teaching young children. Every day, our children are engaged in outdoor activities inspired by the day-to-day life of the farm and its beautiful, natural surroundings.
Our ethos is simple: we want to improve the world we live, in whatever way we can. We also believe in stimulating the imagination of children (and their parents) through engagement in creative and productive activity, accommodating the changing season, routine and weather patterns.
Before your child joins the nursery we have what’s known as a settling in period, when you and your child can come into the nursery and stay for a while together in order to get to know us, the other children and our typical daily nursery routine, etc.
The purpose of this settling in process is that when your child properly starts nursery both you and they will feel familiar with the environment and us which will put your little one much more at ease.
We normally have 2 or 3 settling-in sessions each lasting about an hour. Some children may need more or less visits and we will alter the number of sessions required dependent on your child’s individual needs. See below for more detail on settling-in sessions.
