About Us

Welcome to Sunny Days at Brook, a family-run independent nursery, where we are dedicated to providing outstanding experiences for children. At our small nursery, we prioritise children's well-being and believe in the power of outdoor learning. Located in a charming rural setting, between Haslemere and Godalming we offer full day care from 7:30am to 6pm for rising three (2y 9m) - 5 years olds. 

We believe in the potential of each child and provide tailored learning experiences that encourage their curiosity and ignite their love for learning.  Our team of passionate and qualified educators are committed to creating a warm and supportive environment where children feel valued, encouraged, and inspired. We understand that a child's early years are crucial, and we prioritise their holistic development, nurturing their social, emotional, cognitive, and physical skills.

We place a strong emphasis on outdoor learning, recognising the benefits it brings to a child's development. Our dedicated outdoor spaces provide opportunities for exploration, discovery, and connection with nature. From digging in the mud to engaging in sensory experiences children are encouraged to learn through hands-on experiences that stimulate their imagination and creativity.

At our nursery, we strive to create a strong partnership with parents and families, recognising that their involvement is vital in a child's learning journey. We value open communication, collaboration, and mutual trust to ensure the best possible outcomes for each child.

We invite you to join our nursery family and experience the difference that our outstanding care and dedication can make in your child's early years. Contact us today to arrange a visit and see how we can provide a nurturing and stimulating environment for your child's growth and development.  We look forward to meeting you!
