Brook Farm House Pre-School

Our ambition was to provide the best nursery around. This desire led us to convert our family home into a separate independent setting that directly links to the nursery, but offers dedicated and focused pre-school facilities and care.


The design of the building has been considered specifically around the needs of pre-schoolers and those of school age who visit us for after school and holiday clubs. Containing a music room, art room and library as well as multiple activities rooms and dedicated dining areas – Brook Farm House has a unique and encouraging atmosphere. This is driven by the idyllic setting, whilst being in close proximity to the nursery school which means children have the sense of adventure, with sense of security in their early years.

The staff employed reflect this ethos with a qualified teacher, a resident artist and a physical education instructor all present.

In the garden we have a dedicated forest school retreat. Used following Forest School adventures, it is the perfect place to reflect and conclude activities the Forest School offers.

Although only opened in autumn 2016, the setting has direct benefits for transition and parents and children have provided exceptional feedback following its introduction.

The Art Room

The art room is a dedicated space where the children can let their creative side run wild.  There are facilities for painting, clay modelling, ceramics and textiles as well as much more all under the guidance of our resident artist.

We are so proud of our children that their work takes pride of place throughout both settings

The Music Room

A room dedicated to music gives a place where the children can experience many different ways of  sounds and explore their creative side.  Mrs Stevens, our resident music teacher introduces the children to music using, amongst other things, guitars, bongos and drums.

Forest School Retreat

The perfect place, following an outdoor adventure with forest school, where children can catch a breath, reflect and conclude the outdoor activities under cover if its required, or with the bi-fold doors open to the court yard.

Outdoor Areas

As well as the forest school areas, Brook Farm House has a dedicated outdoor area lined with astro turf to allow safe and clean outside play.  Fully secure the area allows the children to spend plenty of time in the fresh air.  I wonder if they've found any fairies?

The Lodge

The lodge provides a perfect, self contained environment where the children can access the gardens at Brook Farm House and then retreat to a dedicated, heated building to continue the outside activities inside.

The Library

A dedicated library gives the children a place to retreat to, away from the hustle and bustle of pre-school life where they can snuggle down surrounded by big cushions and read their favourite book.

It gives them time to reflect, enjoy and rest


Herons provides wide open, free-flowing space where the children can let their imaginations run wild.  Pre-schoolers can enjoy a warm, safe, stimulating topic-lead environment

Forest School

A area specifically dedicated to outside learning and experience where the children can grow and cultivate their own crops, cook up a meal in the sand kitchen or create art using natural resources.


In Kingfishers pre-school children can find stimulation and comfort, with wonderful views out onto the brook.  Doors can be opened onto a secure patio area where the children can watch the wildlife, and occasionally catch a glimpse of the local kingfisher as she sits on the bridge looking for fish.
