Little Barn Owls Nursery, Brookfield

Little Barn Owls Nursery, Brookfield is located on London Road in Lowfield Heath, a 5-minute drive from the Gatwick Diamond Business Park and Gatwick Airport.

The nursery boasts large outdoor provision and neighbouring woodland, providing ample opportunity for the children to explore the outdoors, participate in outdoor learning and Forest School sessions. We have been  internationally recognised for our unique approach to Early Years Education and have achieved Ofsted OUTSTANDING across each of our nursery sites.

Free-flowing gardens and roaming donkeys!

We have a large free-flow garden, offering an abundance space as well as a farm school that will soon be home to two friendly miniature donkeys who roam around the garden with the children, chickens, a friendly cockerel and guinea pigs.

Each of our nursery gardens are designed and specially curated by our team to enhance their best assets. Each has a signature ornament such as a caravan or a VW camper to make them all unique.

We are inspired by the Reggio Emilia Approach, derived from Northern Italy and world renowned for its progressive philosophy for building an education system fit for children.

We are very keen on developing children’s enquiring minds through a holistic, hands on approach to education which helps children develop their thinking and express themselves creatively. We have an in-house professional artist in a dedicated art studio, known as ‘The Atelier’, which has been built for children to develop their creative research projects alongside the artist and their peers. Often this work turns into projects spanning many weeks and months that has been shared and celebrated all over the world through our professional training school for those in Education who are keen to be inspired by our approach.
