Treehoppers Forest Kindergarten - A woodland Nursery in East Grinstead

Treehoppers Forest Kindergarten is based in woodland in East Grinstead, West Sussex and we opened our invisible doors in October 2018. We are passionate about being outside in the woods and the benefits this can have on children. Some of our own favourite childhood memories are of playing outdoors - climbing trees, making mud pies, collecting petals to make perfume and playing hide and seek in the woods. We want to give Treehoppers' children an outdoor adventure and the chance to make thier own fantastic memories.

Children can join our outdoor pre-school & nursery when they are 2.5 years old and stay until they are 6 years old. We are open 46 weeks of the year, 8.30 am to 3.30 pm Monday - Wednesday. We also run a weekly Parent & Toddler group and a holiday club so there are lots of opportunities for you and your children to join us in the woods for some outdoor learning, exploration & fun.
