We have an amazingly large garden with an orchard at the bottom ready for exploring and a playroom full of toys waiting to be played with.
We use fruit and veg in our cooking and offer healthy drinks and snacks.

Lyn looks after my 8 month old son and she has been a true amazing! My son settled in very quickly and has made excellent progress. Every morning he reaches out for Lyn and smiles when he sees her. We did think out using a local nursery but Lyn is much much better!! A true home from home with a professional and kind feel. Great communication via email and phone with excellent use of tapestry so we know how he is developing. I cant reccommend Lyn enough!!😊

It's so hard choosing someone to entrust your most precious little people with, but I can honestly say that Lyn is beyond fantastic! She is genuinely loving and engaging with all the children, provides a stimulating, fun and educational environment and communicates fantastically with parents. I cannot recommend Lyn highly enough and my two just adore her!

Lyn has been looking after our 2 1/2 year old and 6 year old (before and after school) boys since September 2015.

The boys love her!

She is so organised, yet easy going and really flexible with our childcare needs. She always comes up with fantastic schedules and interesting day activities and provides excellent feedback and reports.

Can’t fault anything at all and would highly recommend!

Moved to Horsham with no Family to support with Childcare. The min we met Lyn we knew she was the right person.

We started with Lyn in 2015 and it's been a lovely experience .My Little girl won't stop talking about her.She involves the Kids in varied activities and since my little Girl started with her her confidence is through the roof.

Very supportive and very flexible.Couldnt ask for anything more.
